CJSC RACOM access nodes in Tver and KLIN UP-GRADED
The Company RASCOM has performed scheduled up-grade of access nodes in Tver and Klin (Moscow Oblast). The works have been done within the frames of an up-grade project for the company's regional network intended for gathering and distributing traffic at the route Moscow - Saint-Petersburg. Nodes' up-grade will be implemented step-by-step during 2008. The project foresees installing STM-64 multiplexors at the company's thirteen access nodes on the territrory of Moscow, Leningrad, Novgorod and Tver Oblasts and in the towns of Tver, Novgorod, Klin and Vyboirg.
By up-grading Tver and Klin nodes accomplished in April 2008, CJSC RASCOM has finalizedthe first stage of the project mentioned. Nortel Networks-maufactured OME6500 MSPP multiplexors were installed at these nodes that can support circuits with STM64, STM16, STM4, STM1, 1000Base-FX interfaces. The up-grade permitted to substantially extend Rascom's capabiity to offer Ethernet channels lease for telecxomm operators. Now, the operatrors can use Rascom's Ethernet channels with banmdwidth of up to 2 Gbps.
The preceeding CJSC RASCOM access network up-grade at the route Moscow - Saint-Petersburg - Finniush-Russian Border was accomplished in 2004, after a separate STM-64 transmission system based on a DWDM linear path has been built. This construction has permitted to meet the growing operators' demand for long-haul and international STM-4 and STM-16 level channels at this route (see press-release dated 22.04.2005ã.).
