Ekinops to Upgrade Linxtelecom’s Submarine Optical Ring

Linxtelecom has chosen Ekinops to provide equipment for a 4 Tbps (terabits per second) submarine optical ring linking the three major cities in the Baltic Sea.

Ekinops announced that the Linxtelecom ring, over submarine cable, is now operational and connects Tallinn in Estonia, Helsinki in Finland, and Stockholm in Sweden.

Linxtelecom was looking for a network that could provide a wide range of multi-protocol services, including 10G and 100G Ethernet, STM64, 8G, and 10G Fibre Channel, enabling the carrier to meet any type of customer demand, the company said.

“We are very proud in partnering with Linxtelecom and helping them deploy a new network over their existing submarine cable,” said Jonathan Amir, Ekinops’ VP Sales for EMEA. “Linxtelecom has a unique footprint in 14 countries and a submarine cable connecting three major international hubs. The new Ekinops submarine network provides more than 30 times the capacity compared with the previous network and will provide even greater capacity with future technologies Ekinops plans to release. Using an existing submarine cable proved extremely economical and extended the life of the cable by many years.”

The company’s objective with this Baltic Sea cable is to leapfrog the competition and become the premier capacity provider in the Baltic Sea area, offering a flexible portfolio of services at competitive prices to operators needing to connect northern Europe to Russia, as well as high capacity connectivity towards the mega data centers in the Nordic countries,” said Heiko H. Koop, CEO Linx Group.
