Akado Telecom (Akado), a major multi-service cable network operator in the Moscow region, has upgraded its backbone network with the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform.
The upgrade supports 100G and boosts Akado's total fiber capacity by more than four times, enabling rapid delivery of high capacity services. Akado provides a full range of advanced communication services based on its own fiber-optic network, which extends more than 18,000 kilometers. Akado's multi-service network provides high-speed residential Internet access, voice services, and cable TV services, as well as a broad range of enterprise services for businesses and government entities.
Infinera said its DTN-X platform enables Akado to rapidly deliver reliable, high-speed networking services. The Infinera DTN-X features 500 Gbps super-channel capability. When combined with Infinera's Instant Bandwidth, Akado can activate bandwidth on demand in 100 Gb/s increments to rapidly deliver services to its customers faster and with lower costs.
"Deploying the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network allows Akado to dramatically increase the capacity on our metro backbone to support the growing demand in Moscow and Moscow region," said Vitaly Klishin, Senior Vice President at Akado Group. "With this solution we can rapidly scale network capacity to deliver reliable 10G, 40G and 100G services to meet the needs of both B2B and B2G customers of Akado Telecom, including banks, service providers and government organizations."
