About the Company

T8 is a leading manufacturer of wavelength-division multiplexing telecom equipment (DWDM and CWDM) in Russia and CIS countries. We develop and produce a line of DWDM and CWDM equipment with a channel speeds up to 100 Gbit/s. All T8 equipment is being developed and manufactured in Russia. To produce our equipment we use the best components from Europe, US, Japan, Russia and other countries. More than 150 people are working in our company, including 2 professors and 15 PhDs. The company entered the list of top-ten most innovative companies of Russia according to the “TekhUspekh-2014” ranking and one of 30 leading Russian high-tech companies with the rapid development. «T8» won CNEWS AWARD competition in nomination “Russian technologies”.

The activity of T8 was many times awarded by a Laser Association. In 2014 the company won a competition of a Russian state corporation “ROSTECH” in a field of photonics with a project of a new DWDM-system. A large part of our profit is re-invested in scientific research and development that allow us to keep place with the world leading manufacturers of CWDM and DWDM equipment. T8 has its own R&D Center which is a resident of the Skolkovo innovation center, as well as the best-equipped measurement laboratory in Russia.

Every year our specialists publish dozens of scientific articles in international and Russian journals, and obtain patents for new scientific research results. Based on researches performed in our R&D Center, we established several world records in 100 Gbit/s signal transmission: Several world records in 100G signal transmission were set using our DWDM-platform Volga: 100G transmission over 4000 km in a 80-channel DWDM system without dispersion compensator modules (DCM); 10*100G transmission over 500 km in a single-span fiber optic line with use of remote optically pumped amplifiers (ROPA).



One of our new fiber optic products is a “Dunay” security system. It is intended for monitoring of security zones of extended objects like oil and gas pipelines, communication lines, state border, or perimeters of large industrial and special objects.Developing of a modern telecom equipment and implementation of innovative technologies require a creative approach and high professionalism from our employees. Not only gurus of modern technologies but also recent graduates are working in our company. We created a training school for education of young specialists, we choose and promote the best graduates of leading Russian universities such as MIPT, MSU, Bauman MGTU and others. Because of that we are a leading Russian company in production and installation of high-tech telecom equipment. We are proud to contribute in development of the Russian economy. T8 offers integrated solutions for building DWDM-systems on a turnkey basis including design, supply, installation and maintenance of the equipment. The T8 is an ISO 9001 certified company. Qualification of our engineers is enough to perform projects of any difficulty level both for backbone and regional DWDM networks Main fields of our activity are:

  • Development and manufacturing of CWDM and DWDM equipment
  • Pre-design analysis of a fiber optic line
  • Principle design, calculation and engineering design of a network
  • Installation of equipment
  • Maintenance and technical support of equipment
  • Development of a fiber optic security and monitoring system “Dunay”


The company has profound technical abilities that allow us to solve any kind of tasks. Having large practical experience of installation of complex DWDM systems in different climatic conditions, we can overcome any non-standard situation with high quality and in strict terms. Mobile groups of engineers and welders permanently work in staff and provide immediate response to any situations. We calculate more than 200 projects every year, and dozens of them come to a stage of implementation. High quality of our projects is remarked by positive references and recommendations. We have installed more than 55,000 km of DWDM systems, and more than 10,000 km of them are high-speed 100G channels. Our key customer in Russia is the Rostelecom Corporation.
