Ekinops’ open vendor approach presents us an opportunity to bring to market cost-effective and highly scalable optical and access solutions that are not only low in power consumption, but also easy to install and maintain.”
“Our partnership with Nexicom Systems marks yet another milestone for our growth in North America”, comments Kevin Antill, Ekinops’ group vice president of sales for North America. “Ekinops’ strong combination of advanced edge technologies and optical transport solutions enables Nexicom Systems to quickly and easily address the technical and budgetary needs of its customer base.
