Eletronet, one of the largest providers of connectivity to ISPs in the Brazilian market has selected Ciena’s converged packet optical solution to launch new wavelength services across its national backbone network for wholesale, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and webscale companies.
Enabled by high-performance capacity of a 100G network that scales to 250G, Eletronet can deliver flexible and reliable high-bandwidth, multi-site connectivity and bundled Internet Protocol (IP) services to its customers across Brazil.
Eletronet is currently supplying high-speed data transport over its national optical ground wire (OPGW) fiber optic network that consists of more than 16,000 kilometers across Brazil’s 18 states. As part of the country’s modernization project, Eletronet aims to provide connectivity to all communities it serves.
With Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, Eletronet can reach up to 22 Tbps of capacity, enabling the company to have the fastest express route in Brazil, said Ciena. Eletronet can deliver up to 10 GbE as well as 100 GbEwavelengths to transport larger amounts of data across longer distances.
The new network lays the foundation for Eletronet to support their customers in the deployment of future services such as virtualization and Software Defined Networking (SDN) applications.
