Target major operator core networks to triple optical transport business within 5 years

OTN technology is used to switch data traffic over optical fibers, significantly optimizing network bandwidth utilization. The OTN technology will allow Ekinops to meet growing market demand for this type of technology. It is estimated that over 40% of the optical network market uses OTN solutions.

This strategic acquisition will enable the Group to become a leader in this field and deliver additional revenue from new OTN products starting in 2020.

The acquisition is financed by the Group's cash resources (EUR14.2 million net cash(1) at December 31, 2018) and debt. The Group raised EUR6.5 million of bank loans in Q2 2019.
