Russia’s TTK Upgrades with Juniper

October 31st, 2011 by · 1 Comment

The Russian operators have been rather actively investing in their infrastructure lately, haven’t they? Today it was TTK, a.k.a. TransTeleCom, upgrading its IP network with gear from Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings). Russian infrastructure wins aren’t minor, as you can see from the company’s fiber map:

75,000km of fiber across 1,000 access nodes, much of it following the rail lines of course. That trans-asian fiber is becoming more important these days to the global internet. TTK will be deploying MX Series 3D edge routers to support the operators Ethernet, IP-VPN, Layer 2 VPN, and other services.

As for other Russian infrastructure work going on, Rostelecom had two 100G-related announcements this month with Alcatel-Lucent  and Huawei, as well as a fiber buildout in Siberia.
