DataGroup telecommunication company (Kyiv) is planning to invest USD 1 million in upgrading trunk DWDM networks in 2010, reads a statement made by the company.

In the first half of the ongoing year they plan to build changeover over the backbone DWDM network connecting Ukrainian towns of regional and provincial significance of a combined throughput capacity of 10 Gbps.

“Implementation of this project will allow boost capacity of DataGroup’s trunk network to twenty gigabit per second on the main lines,” the statement said.

The company says before April they will commission the circle Kyiv — Dnipropetrovsk — Zaporizhia — Simferopol — Mykolaiv — Kyiv, channels Kyiv — Lviv and Mykolaiv — Odesa.

Within this circle they upgraded the channel between Kyiv and Dnipropetrovsk and increased its multimode power to 23 Gbps from 10 Gbps.

By June DataGroup plans to widen to 10 Gbps throughput capacity of the circle Simferopol — Yevpatoria — Sevastopol, Zaporizhia — Berdiansk — Mariupol.

“The third phase will be expansion of the channel Dnipropetrovsk — Donetsk — Kharkiv this July to 10 Gbps too,” the statement said.

Apart from this, within the framework of realisation of this project the company will install equipment allowing augment traffic to 10 Gbps from 1 Gbps for end users.

The company operates a nationwide DWDM fiber-optic data transfer network of 11,500 kilometres and an MPLS multimedia network built on its basis. The MPLS network allows transmission of voice, data, and images to the end users — corporate and private subscribers.
