Zito Media, provider of video, Internet, and phone services to 110 communities in 16 U.S. states, has deployed a 100 gigabit per second fiber-optic ring around the state of Pennsylvania, using equipment from Ekinops.
Pennsylvania-based Zito Media is using its new high-capacity optical network to provide mobile backhaul services as well as high-speed services to commercial and public sector customers.
The 360 system from Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment, is the foundation for the 100G network. EKINOPS is providing a mix of traditional and extended temperature range gear, including muxponders, amplifiers, and optical multiplexers.
Zito Media originally looked at increasing bandwidth by aggregating a series of 10 gigabit per second links. The service provider chose EKINOPS because of the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of its 100G solution. The 100G approach also better positions Zito Media for handling future customer growth.
With the EKINOPS equipment now in place, Zito Media can serve its customers' wide range of bandwidth needs in urban and rural communities, and is assured of being able to reliably meet its service level agreement standards.
"Our goal has always been to provide our customers with the best possible level of video, data, and voice services," said Randy Vanderheiden, Vice-President Engineering of Zito Media. "This high-capacity network is part of our ongoing commitment to technological innovation and the delivery of new and advanced services."
"Because Zito Media is using our equipment, they essentially have a 100G network for less than the cost of 40G capacity, or four 10G channels," explained Kevin Antill, Vice-President Sales of Ekinops. "They can now take advantage of a far more robust network that can readily accommodate their customer growth."
EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI) announces that its subsidiary OneAccess Networks, a telecom network access and virtualization specialist, announced the launch of its OneOS6 operating system, enabling operators to take charge of their migration to virtualized services, free from vendor lock-in and at a pace they dictate.
EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI) announces that its subsidiary OneAccess Networks, a telecom network access and virtualization specialist, has been recognised at the Metro Ethernet Forum 2017 Awards as a contributor with a silver win for Telia Company’s Proof of Concept (PoC) which, enabled by OneAccess’ equipment, showcased agile SD-WAN services over multiple operator domains enabled by Telia’s commercial 4G mobile access for Carrier Ethernet services.
EKINOPS has introduced two new flexible rate line modules that lower the cost of optical transport while improving network efficiency and flexibility. A major Spanish wholesale operator is one of the first customers to deploy this new solution.
