Inoventica and RETN’s Multimillion Contract

Moscow, Russia

The head company of Inoventica Group – JSC “Communications for innovation” – and JSC “RetnNet” have resolved to develop the backbone network in the Russian Federation through a joint venture.

The project, transpiring in the Central and Volga federal districts, provides an opportunity for the installation of RETN’s multiplexors by technology Alien Wavelength, with a bandwidth of 100Gbps, on top of Inoventica’s DWDM backbone. The total length of the created infrastructure by JSC “RetnNet” is 2276 km.

“Through regular improvement of Inoventica’s ICT structure, we have ensured that our network allows for the successful organisation of 100Mbps channels using equipment from different manufacturers without interference,” – said Pavel Pozdnyakov, acting General Director, and Inoventica’s Commercial Director.

As a result of this project RETN will increase both channel capacity and the number of their points of presence, as well as provide a redundancy route for the network; Inoventica will receive additional revenue in the tens of millions of roubles a year.

“Cooperation with Inoventica Group provides opportunities for “RetnNet” to rapidly expand RETN’s high-performance network throughout Russia through cost optimisation of network expansion for routes in strategically important areas,” – noted Maxim Syunikov, General Director of JSC “RetnNet”.
