Ekinops is a provider of next-generation optical transport solutions for service providers and private networks.

Its carrier-grade solutions leverage expertise in 10G, 40G, and 100G transmission, aggregation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) to allow operators to cost-effectively increase data transport capacity over dark fiber, CWDM, DWDM, SONET/SDH, IP/Ethernet and SAN networks. Ekinops has a market unique technology called the T-Chip® (Transport on-a-Chip) that is programmable and allows for small footprint, low power consumption, short manufacturing times, and quick introduction of new features via software rather than hardware.


The Ekinops 360 is a carrier class optical transport platform designed for Metro, Regional and Long haul CWDM and DWDM networks. It can aggregate or transport any Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET or SDH client protocol from 100Mb to 40G today (100G later this year) using advanced Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) solutions. This technology significantly lowers the cost of building and maintaining DWDM and CWDM optical networks by reducing the number of wavelengths in the network.


Ekinops also provides 10G/40G/100G transponders and distance extension solutions for long-haul fiber and Ethernet over SONET/SDH solutions, which enable service providers to transparently interconnect multiple LANs over a SONET, SDH, Fibre Channel, or Ethernet network as they migrate to an all-IP network.


Ekinops' technology can also be found integrated into the products of some of the industry's leading equipment manufacturers. The company takes pride in using its expertise and resources to help its partners develop leading edge solutions while shortening time to market and increasing ROI.


Founded in 2003 by seasoned telecom and datacom industry experts, and backed by some of the industry's leading venture funds, Ekinops has earned the accolades of carriers and partners around the world with its technology and commitment to excellence. The company is headquartered in Lannion, France, with sales offices in Europe, and the US and a representative office in Singapore.
