Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert) is offering its 100G optical coherent technology to Peru-based connectivity infrastructure and ICTs solution provider INTERNEXA, which is set to roll out high-quality video and multimedia services for its South American customers.
As a part of the new service rollout, INTERNEXA will bring high-quality video and other multimedia content from around the world to its customers. Using Alacatel Lucent’s100 gigabit per second (100G) optical coherent technology, INTERNEXA will deploy a new optical network.
Based on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM), Alcatel-Lucent’s next-generation optical coherent technology offers exceptional performance in existing and new networks.
Designed to address the booming demand for high-bandwidth data services such as high-definition video streaming, Internet applications and cloud services, Alacatel Lucent’s 100G solution is expected to dramatically boost the speed and capacity of INTERNEXA’s data network, enabling the company to meet subscribers’ fast-growing demands for mobile video, high-speed Internet access and other data services in Peru.
This highly flexible network is also expected to support future bandwidth demands in the region.
With the region’s largest terrestrial telecommunications network, INTERNEXA provides connectivity to operators in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and soon, Central America.
In an effort to help efficiency for operators, the company is migrating digital content currently located outside the continent to data centers in Colombia and Brazil through agreements with the main Content Delivery Network (CDN).
This move is expected to enhance quality of service for subscribers and create new opportunities for content developers.
For these, INTERNEXA needed a solution that could manage huge volumes of data traffic and reduce complexity in its network in Peru to provide higher-quality services. Alcatel-Lucent is providing INTERNEXA with its 100G optical coherent technology, based on Alcatel-Lucent’s High Leverage Network (HLN) architecture, and designed to slash transport costs and dramatically reduce operational complexity in core networks.
“With Alcatel-Lucent’s innovative 100G solution, we’re taking a major step to deploy a highly flexible network that will support present and future bandwidth demand with improved performance and allow faster delivery of services to the market,” said Luis Francisco Gamero, director of Operations for INTERNEXA Peru. “By creating the conditions for a Latin American Internet, we’re building the future for the people in Peru and the rest of the region.”
“Our DWDM solution offers unprecedented capacity, scalability, bandwidth and the lowest cost per bit for a reduced total cost of ownership. This 100G upgrade will dramatically expand the capacity of INTERNEXA’s network, helping ensure the delivery of high-quality services and providing the operator with a flexible platform to expand their capacity to 400G in the future, with minimal investment,” said president of Alcatel-Lucent in the Caribbean and Latin America, Osvaldo Di Campli.
A few months ago, PCCW (News - Alert) Global, a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications provider, PCCW Limited, announced an agreement with INTERNEXA to interconnect their Ethernet networks.
