EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI) has expanded its OneAccess portfolio with the addition of the ONE3540 multi-service access router. The mid-range router is designed for the networks of Tier 1 operators who seek what the company termed “fiercely competitive pricing.”
The ONE3540 offers 10-Gbps bidirectional WAN connectivity routing. It runs on Ekinops' OneOS6 open operating system, which is designed to support evolution from traditional to virtualized and software-defined services. Use of the new router enables operators to deliver scalable and reliable services of up to 10 Gbps, with full Layer 3 features, that can be extended to the OneOS6 built-in SD-WAN function, Ekinops adds.
"The ONE3540 platform has been specifically designed to help operators transform the connectivity problem into a revenue opportunity," commented Philippe Moulin, COO in charge of access products and services at Ekinops. "Increased mobility, voice, and video requirements are all creating network bottlenecks. Enterprise expectation for low-latency software-defined services also adds to the pressure on service providers. We are thrilled to offer Tier 1 operators an open platform that fully addresses these needs and mitigates vendor lock-in."
A global Tier 1 service provider has certified the ONE3540 router, says Ekinops, which the system is undergoing validation with other service providers.
