AVELACOM Builds Network from London to Moscow with Packetlight Transport Solutions

Tel Aviv, Israel – Feb 7, 2017

PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of optical fiber networking solutions, today announced a partnership 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. By opting for PacketLight Networks 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”, stated Aleksey Larichev, Managing Director of Avelacom.

The PacketLight family of products are the highest standard for optical transport solutions for high speed, high security long-haul and metro networks. They increase spectral efficiency, save wavelength resources and enable higher fiber, metro and long-haul network utilization. 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.

“Meeting AVELACOM’s long haul needs, coupled with the low latency demands, was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate the high end technology in PacketLight’s suite of products, and professional capabilities of PacketLight’s technical team,” says, Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight. “We are proud to deliver AVELACOM this state of the art solution that stretched almost 1100 km and met the stringent requirements expected by the financial sectors.”
