Synterra, ECI partner to meet traffic growth

Russian operator Synterra is to deploy ECI’s new XDM-3000 to accommodate growing customer demand for capacity-intensive carrier-class infrastructure solutions that can simultaneously handle both Ethernet and TDM-based services, fundamental to the ECI 1Net framework for optimal network transition.

ECI Telecom has announced that leading Russian operator Synterra CJSC is deploying the XDM-3000, a new Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP). With the XDM-3000, Synterra will upgrade its core backbone infrastructure nodes in several cities across Russia “to improve network performance and more efficient routing of traffic with high network-fault-tolerance.” The introduction of a “higher performance and multi-service equipment will allow Synterra to optimize its network, and realise savings of more than 30% in the modernization of its network.”  

“Synterra’s volume of network traffic is increasingly growing,” stated Ekaterina Andreeva, a Synterra spokesman. “The network is loaded both with traffic generated by our corporate customers as well as from our activities as carrier of carriers.  To provide all of our business customers with the highest quality telecom services expected, we are constantly upgrading our network infrastructure and its capabilities.” 

As part of ECI’s 1Net framework “the XDM-3000 highlights a gradual, cost-optimised solution that supports premium Ethernet services over the well-proven SDH infrastructure while supporting a migration path to next-generation networks and services.” As operators look to scale up their Ethernet services, they often find it more expedient just to add more SDH, supporting short time-to-market, fast return-on-investment, low risk and inherent carrier–class quality. Carriers and end users alike consider carrier-class Ethernet services delivered over a SDH infrastructure as premium services, addressing the strict requirements of mission-critical applications. 

The XDM-3000 boasts 240 Gb/s capacity, low-order non-blocking connectivity for maximum flexibility, concentration of both TDM and data traffic into WDM OTN pipes and Automatic Switched Optical Network (ASON) for increased network resiliency in metro core networks. It is also claimed to deal with increased traffic load in metro-core sites, the load caused by growth of business services as well as voice and data traffic from 2G/3G mobile networks and triple-play services.  

This latest contract is the culmination of ECI’s long-term partnership with Synterra, as ECI continues to support the operator to deploy modern technologies. Deployment is now underway and there have been no reports of problems. Before deployment, ECI’s Global Services Division (GSD) worked with Synterra on how best to optimise the latter’s network. The result of this consultation has led to the selection of the XDM-3000.
