RETN uses Infinera to power new Transkz network

Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 17:04 CET | News

RETN, an international network service provider, used Infinera’s fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4)-based platform to power its Transkz network and complete its latest phase upgrade in May. The new terrestrial system connecting Europe and Asia provides an alternative to existing sub-sea cable systems. The high-performance network supports three diverse paths of similar lengths from Europe to the border of China via Kazakhstan in partnership with Transtelecom, and provides low-latency and high-capacity services linking all major locations in commercial and financial hubs between Europe and Asia.

RETN operates its own end-to-end Eurasian network stretching between North America and Asia. The RETN network provides differentiated terrestrial connectivity between major markets: Western Europe, CEE and CIS, Russia, and Kazakhstan, running onward to the Chinese border.

The Transkz network stretches across a diverse terrain of more than 15,000 kilometres and interconnects critical markets which are currently underserved territories across the route. Working closely with Infinera, RETN completed the final 4,000 kilometres of the main route in Kazakhstan and deployed services on the long-distance network in less than 30 days, accelerating time to revenue.

Deploying network services with Infinera’s ICE4-based platform will enable RETN to quickly deliver reliable, high-speed, low-latency 100G services to meet the increasing demands of global enterprises, international carriers, internet service providers, and content providers.
