ElCat is one of the leading telecom operators in Kyrgyzstan, providing triple play services to domestic customers, and data services to their partners in neighboring countries.
ElCat wanted to build a cross-country DWDM network to upgrade their existing SDH network and expand reach to provide services to their partners in neighboring countries. They were looking for fast deployment of a 10G-based network in tough geographical conditions, while setting a foundation for future gradual expansion, using 10G and 100G channels.
PacketLight’s carrier grade DWDM OTN solution was deployed, setting a good foundation for future expansion. The compact, low power consumption equipment was valuable for ElCat’s remote sites.
