Copel Telecom, a leading provider of regional telecommunications services in Brazil, has deployed 200G optical transmission technology from Coriant to scale its fiber optic backbone network in the State of Paraná.

Powered by Coriant CloudWave Optics, the ultra-high speed solution enables Copel Telecom to cost-efficiently meet the growing bandwidth demands of its end-user customers while enhancing the high-quality, low latency performance of end-to-end service connectivity.

The Copel Telecom fiber optic network provides the resilient foundation for an expanding subscriber base of residential high-speed internet services covering more than 81 cities as well as carrier-class corporate services offered in all 399 municipalities in Paraná. Built upon the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform, Copel Telecom has increased line-side transmission speeds on its hiT 7300-based long haul backbone network to 200G per wavelength, said Coriant. In addition to increasing reach and spectral efficiency, the programmable interface solution enables Copel Telecom to reduce power, footprint, and cost as the network scales.

The Coriant solution for Copel Telecom includes enhancements to the Coriant Transcend Chorus transport network management system, which supports simplified end-to-end service provisioning and advanced network control through software-defined programmability and automation.

Adir Hannouche, CEO, Copel Telecom
Our long-standing technology collaboration with Coriant has enabled us to keep pace with the capacity demands of end-user applications, and we are proud to announce that our network today is one of the first in Brazil to support 200G transmission.

Lucas Vanagas, MD for South America, Coriant
The tremendous success that Copel Telecom has demonstrated with its residential GPON deployments has been one of the main drivers for increased capacity demand in the backbone network.
