Russia's MTS Deploys ECI Telecom's Apollo Multi-Layer Transport for 100G

MTS, the leading mobile operator in Russia, has deployed ECI Telecom's Apollo Optimized Multi-Layer Transport (OMLT) platforms to extend the existing ECI’s DWDM backbone, enabling all advanced services, including 100G.

The project links Moscow and Saint Petersburg.  With more than 1,000 km, it has been operational since 2003, with both 2.5G and 10G.  By adding Apollo OMLT shelves with 100G cards in add/drop points, MTS can leverage the already installed XDM shelves.

Specifically, MTS has deployed the Apollo OPT9624 to expand its cross-country DWDM backbone based on ECI optical platforms. The new Apollo DWDM network will enable MTS to provide advanced high capacity, long reach 100G services. It includes connection between core routers with 100G link.

"According to our forecast the penetration of smartphones in our network will reach 60% by the end of 2015; launches of LTE networks in Russian regions will force the mobile traffic growth; implementation of fixed line internet and its usage growth will increase the volume of data traffic in our backbones at 6-10 times. At the moment the volume of everyday traffic exchange between Moscow and Saint Petersburg is over 1 Petabyte and we are building the high-performance system of backbone lines sequentially enhancing its capacity to supply the demand in data exchange in long-term perspective," stated Andrey Ushatskiy, Vice-president, Group CTO, MTS
