Kontinental Hoсkey League

Company Profile

The Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) is a new international league which was established for the development of ice hockey in Russia and other European and Asian countries. The decision to create the League was made in February 2008. After discussions and preparation work on the 27th March 2008, the Russian Ice-Hockey Federation (RIHF) awarded KHL the rights to host the National Championship for the coming 3 years. The Champion of Russia will therefore be the KHL Championship winner. This will be the best club according to Championship league-table results. The League is divided into two conferences: East and West with an additional four divisions named after renowned coaches and players: Vsevold Bobrov, Anatoliy Tarasov, Valeriy Harlamov and Arkadiy Chernishev. The fourth KHL Championship will have a total of 23 clubs from Russia, Belorussia, Latvia, Kazakhstan and Slovakia. The league will last from September 2011 until April 2012. The League’s main trophy is the Gagarin Cup. It will be awarded to the best team at the end of the final series. The KHL Championship is divided into two stages: regular and play-off cups.


In 2010 the KHL chose Mastertel as its telecommunications partner. We fulfilled our client’s telecommunications needs by establishing connection in five KHL member organizations.


Within the agreed framework of this project, the connection of several organizations to the various telephone networks (via E1 digital connection lines) was achieved. A separate line with the use of dark fiber-optic cables was allocated to each organization. Internet access was also provided with a speed of 100 MB/sec as well as a customized telephone number and a standard range of numbers.

As a result of Mastertel’s specialists’ professional approach, the project was completed within a very short time and at a high professional level.

‘We strive to offer our clients the best solutions in everything that we do. That is why, during pre-project preparations, we took into account all possible risks and difficulties. As a result of this project, the KHL management team received our guarantee of the highest operational reliability of the telecommunications systems that we provided‘
