The deployment will provide e-government services for the businesses and 1.4 million population of the Khabarovsk region, region which is in the far east of Russia. Khabarosk regional government needed to maximise the capacity of the interconnection between its data centres and chose to work with LANIT-PARTNER. Together with LANIT-PARTNER, the network planners for Khabarovsk region chose Transmode as the optical networking provider to ensure maximum capacity for the administrative centre for Russia’s Far East Province.
The deployment of Transmode’s optical networking systems will allow the regional government the flexibility and the scalability it needs to build extra capacity as required. Initially it will provide 10Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel services for both the back-up and main data centres. The decision to deploy the Transmode solution was based on the vendor meeting the ultra-low latency targets demanded for the project.
“This new network will greatly increase our ability to deliver high quality e-government services to broad user base,” said Igor Pavlichenko, Head of Department in Committee for Information Technologies and Telecommunications at the Khabarovsk regional government. “The combination of superior technology from Transmode and local expertise from LANIT-PARTNER had provided us with the ideal platform for today’s and tomorrow’s needs”.
The new network was jointly designed between Transmode and LANIT-PARTNER to meet the long-term needs of the regional government. The iWDM equipment installed includes rack mounted units with a very low footprint (6RU) and sub 20ns latency to ensure the Khabarovsk government can deliver high-speed capacity for its e-government initiatives. This provides a resilient and secure network with open standards to meet all of the regional government’s requirements.
“While implementing this project we faced tough requirements for building this high capacity network with ultra low latency, which was also future-proof to our customer’s demands in system scalability and flexibility,” said Vladimir Rimer, General Director of LANIT-PARTNER. “We chose Transmode’s optical platform for this system as it is state-of-the-art, complies to all modern standards and is able to comply to the most complicated technical requirements of our customer. We were able to link these data centres with a fibre-optic network that is scalable and we have minimised the rack space using a compact node for the amount of capacity it offers.”
Björn Andersson Transmode’s VP Sales, added, “We are very pleased to be working with LANIT-PARTNER to have deployed an optical interconnection for the regional government of Khabarovsk. This has been a true partnership to meet the demanding standards of our most easterly customer. We look forward to providing on-going training and support to this new customer.”
