PacketLight Networks has partnered with Avelacom to build out their high speed network from London to Moscow with PacketLight’s optical transport solutions.
Avelacom is one of the fastest growing international telecom/IT companies in Europe, and leveraged PacketLight hardware to reduce the network latency, allowing them to meet the growing demands of capital markets for low latency data transport across the continent.
Avelacom selected PacketLight’s PL-1000GT muxponder/transponder solution, as well as the PL-1000IL, to meet the aggressive demands of building a 100G low latency DWDM long-haul network stretching 1100 km with full add/drop capability at all major sites. Their carrier-grade solution provided the necessary throughput rate of 100G in a compact, easy-to-configure 1U box, with full Optical Transport Network (OTN) integration and remote management and troubleshooting capabilities.
“PacketLight’s products allowed us to extend our network as well as to achieve the project low latency goals…we could cut up to 30% of equipment’s latency. The solution also provided the required redundancy with full remote monitoring, a dedicated optical supervisory channel (OSC) and possibility of line protection,” said Aleksey Larichev, Managing Director of Avelacom.
The PacketLight family of products increase spectral efficiency, save wavelength resources and enable higher fibre, metro and long-haul network utilisation. All products are compact 1U, highly integrated transport solutions enabling enterprises and carriers to cost effectively build-out or upgrade their existing networks, eliminating costs such as rack space, cooling, and additional hardware for security, repeaters and other network elements.
