Akado Telecom Selects Infinera for Optical Network in Moscow

Akado Telecom Selects Infinera for Optical Network in Moscow 
SUNNYVALE, CA and MOSCOW -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 --  Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, and
Akado Telecom (trademark of KOMKOR, OJSC.), a major multi-service
cable network operator in the Moscow region, announced today the
launch of Akado Telecom's high-speed metro optical network in Moscow
and the surrounding region based on the Infinera DTN and ATN
platforms.  
Akado selected Infinera for the flexibility, scalability and
simplicity of Infinera's integrated end-to-end solutions. With the
new metro transport network using Infinera's Digital Optical Network
architecture, Akado will be one of the first fixed network operators
in Russia to deploy a next generation DWDM infrastructure able to
support 100 GbE services. 
Russian service providers face the need to continue investing in
their network infrastructure to keep up with growing bandwidth
demands while ensuring scalability and maintaining a high level of
service quality. These requirements are a critical factor in securing
customer loyalty, maintaining corporate reputation and intensifying
competition for subscribers. 
Akado Telecom 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. Infinera's DTN platform will provide a right-sized
solution for the metropolitan core network and the ATN will provide a
compact metro aggregation solution with a common network management
solution for end-to-end point-and-click transport services.  
With demand for bandwidth driving 10 gigabit services and emerging
interest in 100 GbE services coming from their customers, Akado
Telecom needed a modern DWDM backbone network with integrated OTN
switching capabilities. With its intelligent algorithms managing
bandwidth utilization, Infinera's DTN solution was chosen by Akado to
ensure a higher level of network efficiency, at the same time
providing a way to reduce operational and capital costs and
ultimately lower total cost of ownership.  
"The ne
w solution we implemented offers us a flexible next generation
DWDM network and intelligent tools to rapidly deploy additional
bandwidth resources," said Vitaly Klishin, business development
director at Akado Group. "As one of the first service providers in
Russia to offer 100 GbE services, we are committed to continuously
satisfying the needs of over 3,500 enterprises, 350 service
providers, and over 12,000 state organizations, and will further
innovate our backbone network in 2013."  
"We are excited to be selected by Akado Telecom for their metro core
and access aggregation deployment and will continue to work with them
as they build out this next generation network throughout the Moscow
region," said Chris Champion, vice president EMEA sales. "We are
committed to Russia and helping our customers succeed in this
market." 
Akado's deployment of Infinera's DTN and ATN platforms provides them
with a state-of-the-art network. The Infinera DTN platform, powered
by 100 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs), is designed to scale
up to 6.4 Tb/s of transmission capacity per fiber today and support
services with speeds up to 100 GbE. The Infinera ATN, a scalable WDM
transport platform with multi-service aggregation, brings the
intelligence and integration of the Infinera Digital Optical Network
to the metro edge.
