OVERVIEW
Dynamic Multi-Reach Transport System
The Ekinops 360 Dynamic Multi-Reach Transport System is a next generation optical transport
platform that provides DWDM and CWDM in a single product and addresses backhaul, fronthaul,
metro, regional and long haul applications.
At the heart of the Ekinops 360 lies the T-CHIP® (Transport on-a-Chip) that enables fast, flexible and
cost effective service delivery. The T-CHIP® technology provides a programmable infrastructure
Lowering the Overall Cost
of Equipment
capable of supporting any application type — both existing and future — from a common platform
to speed the development and lower the cost of our transport solutions. The Ekinops 360 platform
also supports Ekinops patented DYNAFEC® technology that delivers superior Forward Error Correction
Cost-Effectively Achieving
Long Distances with Software
(FEC) for greater reach even over older fiber.
The Ekinops 360 platform delivers transport rates from 100Mbps to 200Gbps today and can scale
to 1Tbps and beyond. The T-CHIP® is developed exclusively by Ekinops meaning we can deliver
functionality ahead of the market, giving our customers a distinct and sustainable competitive
advantage. The Ekinops 360 also offers a wide range of optical layer solutions from “pay-as-you-grow”
amplifiers to a truly scalable ROADM, to a complete line of low cost CWDM and DWDM filters and
Optical Add & Drop Multiplexers (OADMs). These solutions allow our customers to minimize their
upfront costs and grow their networks in a manner that provides a sustainable Return On Investment
(ROI).
The Ekinops 360 can be managed locally or remotely using the EkiCraft equipment management
software tool, or via Celestis® Pilot, Ekinops advanced Network Management System (NMS) that
allows complete monitoring and control capability at all levels from the overall network to the
individual services.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Ekinops 360 Platform
The Ekinops 360 platform is a NEBS Level 3 certified and ETSI compliant rack mountable transport system that spans backhaul,
fronthaul, metro, regional and long haul applications.
It supports a wide variety of data protocols and rates with channel plan options scaling to over 17 Tbps. In addition, the Ekinops
360 system offers a single fiber option that supports up to 640 bi-directional 10Gbps client ports or 32 bi-directional 100Gbps
or 200Gbps client ports today with larger ports count options planned for the future.
The Ekinops 360 platform consists of a modular 7RU chassis for high density applications, a compact modular 2RU chassis for lowdensity applications, as well as a dual profile 1RU 100G shelf. With its unique combination of programmability, service density
and configurability, the Ekinops 360 platform offers unprecedented levels of flexibility to meet any network challenge.
The platform includes optical multiplexers (Mux/Demux), Reconfigurable Optical Add & Drop Multiplexers (ROADM) and Optical
Amplifiers (OA). Mux/Demux filter modules are designed in a modular fashion to accommodate channel growth without service
interruption.

AGGREGATION
Service aggregation is a critical functionality of optical networks just as it is in Layer 2 switched
and Layer 3 routed networks. Network studies show that aggregation reduces the number of
wavelengths in the network and lowers the overall cost of WDM networks by 30% - 50%.
Using the Ekinops DYNAMUX® Technology, enabled by the T-Chip®, the Ekinops 360 platform is
Efficient Utilization
of Wavelengths & Fiber
capable of aggregating multiple service types and rates over one wavelength at wire speed.
This includes aggregation of virtually any mix of 100Mb, GbE, Fibre Channel (1G/2G/4G), OC-3/12/48,
STM-1/4/16 and uncompressed (HD-SDI, SD-SDI, ASI) video signals onto a 10G ITU-T G.709 or
OC-192/STM-64 line rate. These services and rates can also be efficiently multiplexed with 8Gbps
and 10Gbps traffic (OTN, SONET/SDH, Fibre Channel) into a 100Gbps line rate while up to twenty
10 GbE services can be multiplexed into a 200Gbps line rate.
Ekinops does this by encapsulating multiple client inputs together with a digital wrapper that also
contains a Data Communications Channel (DCC) and optional Forward Error Correction (FEC). FEC
is used to correct errors in long haul transport applications.
Aggregation modules utilize pluggable SFP, SFP+ and QSFP28 client interfaces making it easy
and economical to start with even just one client interface with the ability to scale rapidly and
cost-effectively just by plugging in new optics. The benefit to this approach is that more services
can be added to support more customers on the same wavelength without service interruption
and at a minimal added cost.
Because of its unique multiplexing capability, the Ekinops 360 system can also act as a next
generation ADM. With the T-Chip® functionality, different service types and rates that are multiplexed
onto a single wavelength can be added and dropped selectively at multiple sites on a route with
the use of only a single muxponder at each site.

CARRIER-GRADE RELIABILITY & AVAILABILITY
The Ekinops 360 Dynamic Multi-Reach Transport System is a carrier-grade platform that offers
Certified for
customers maximum reliability and availability. All chassis include redundant power supplies and
Extended
Temperature fans. Each service module is hot swappable and is independent from other modules in the chassis.
Range
The C200HC chassis comes in an Extended Temperature Range (ETR) variant for operation in harsh
(ETR)
climates and can be deployed in virtually any location inside or outside.
Service traffic is kept on the muxponder/transponder and is not carried across a backplane, which eliminates failures as well as
any backplane speed limitations and lowering device-based latency. This architectural approach also allows for infinite scalability
of the system to higher rates as the industry moves to 1Tbps transport rates and beyond.
In addition, once a system is configured, it is fully operational even in the event of a management card failure.
The Ekinops 360 platform includes protection switching capability for delivering protected services in ring or point-to-point
configurations. Protection is used for restoring and maintaining service in case of fiber cuts or other network outages.

EKINOPS PM_OA FAMILY
2 slots
Optical Amplifier family
The PM_OA family are Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) that allow optical signals to be transmitted over longer
distances without the need for regeneration. All variants may be ordered as a booster/pre-amplifier or as an in-line
amplifier.
≥
• PM_OA_HCS: The Ekinops HCS amplifier family automatically compensates the gain settings
as fibers degrade over time due to aging or splicing and seamlessly adjusts the optical power
as channels are added and removed. This eliminates the need to manually adjust the network
as it evolves. HCS amplifiers have up to 23 dBm of output power and variable gain from 10 dB
to 32 dB.
