MAINZ, Germany and PARIS and MANCHESTER, U.K. -- Cube Optics AG, an innovative vendor of passive WDM solutions together with Ekinops, a leading optical transport equipment manufacturer, have been selected by UK operator NWIX as key suppliers for its planned network expansion. The deployments provide additional capacity and reach through Ekinops’ reconfigurable add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) capabilities and support the future growth of NWIX’s high-capacity, national optical network.

NWIX, which specializes in providing Ethernet and DWDM services, was looking to increase the capacity of its regional and national network and thereby meet the growing demand for its services. The Ekinops 360 platform with ROADM capabilities offered NWIX a cost-effective means to extend the NWIX network and build a comprehensive leading edge network.

“We needed a robust and flexible technology for our core network and for interconnecting with our customers,” noted Nick Whittaker, CTO of NWIX. “Our customers demand a low latency service which necessitates aggressive re-route times. The Cube Optics/Ekinops solution will be used to ensure low latency; it also provides flexibility, due to its ability to start small but migrate to provide up to 80 channels per fibre pair when necessary.”
