Russia's Avelacom Builds 100G Moscow-London Route with Alcatel-Lucent

Russia-based Avelacom announced will expand its 100G optical backbone network from Moscow to London using Alcatel-Lucent’s Agile Optical Networking technology. The deployment uses 100G DWDM on Alcatel-Lucent's 1830 Photonic Service Switch (1830 PSS) platform.

The route enables Avelacom to provide low cost, high-capacity and low-latency connectivity between Russia’s two largest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg, and cities in the Baltics, Scandinavia and Western Europe.  Alcatel-Lucent Channel Partner Maintrac, headquartered in Linkoping Sweden, is providing turnkey installation, provisioning and maintenance.
