Comstar-UTS tests backbone network

Russian service provider Comstar-UTS has begun testing its multi-service fibre backbone between Moscow and Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia.

Comstar-UTS began constructing the network in 2008 and has so far laid about 1,350km of fibre connecting Moscow to Rostov-on-Don via Tula, Lipetsk, Voronezh, Kamensk-Shakhtinsk, Shaxti and Novocherkassk, with a capacity of 10Gbps. Israel’s ECI Telecom provided equipment. Comstar-UTS has invested about RUB146m (€3.24m) in the project.
