Ukraine's Eurotranstelecom Deploys 100G with Ciena

Ukrainian-based Eurotranstelecom has commercially deployed 100G technology in its nationwide backbone network covering the key regions in Ukraine and linking it to Russian, Polish, Hungarian and Slovakian networks. The deployment uses Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform equipped with WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors.

The first 100G link is 560 km long and connects the capital Kiev to Kharkov in the northeast of the country. ETT plans to extend its 100G network to major Ukrainian regional centers such as Lvov, Donetsk, Odessa, and Dnepropetrovsk, providing high-speed support for in-transit traffic from European, Ukrainian and Russian operators.
