ElCat, Kyrgyzstan

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.
