Telco Systems announced that the company has successfully deployed a new 10GE high capacity carrier Ethernet network for the Kenya Education Network (KENET).
KENET is a not-for-profit telecommunications operator in Kenya supporting the communication needs of the education and research institutions in the country.
The new carrier Ethernet network deployed by Telco Systems replaces KENET's previously used Layer 3 transport network to provide Internet access and data center interconnectivity to all the universities and research institutes in Kenya. KENET's new carrier Ethernet network is managed and orchestrated by Telco Systems' EdgeGenie Orchestrator management system, which gives complete control over the service provisioning processes. The new network is also based on Telco Systems' T-Metro 8001 10GE service aggregation platforms and T-Marc 3348S 10GE demarcation devices, providing KENET with certified CE 2.0 services based on VPLS.
This new network provides KENET with greater bandwidth to support more traffic and better serve its education and research institution customers with superior levels of service level agreement (SLA) commitments and improved traffic engineering possibilities.
