NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today that it has delivered a 100Gbps transponder to Internexa for optical transmission. This is the first such transponder to be provided to Internexa and has already started commercial operation in Colombia.

Internexa is a leading provider of telecommunications infrastructure and ICT services as well as an affiliate of ISA, a business group composed of 30 affiliates and subsidiaries that promote major infrastructure projects and development throughout 9 countries in Latin America.

The Internexa network is open to all operators and features an area of 28,000 km of terrestrial fiber optics primarily mounted on electrical infrastructure that connects Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Internexa capitalizes on the latest technologies as a leader in Internet access services for operators, data transport and ICT solutions tailored to its customers. Moreover, Internexa helps to create an ecosystem for migrating digital contents for the development of “the real Latin-American internet” reaching approximately 380 million people.

The transponder that NEC delivered for the construction of these network projects incorporates a 100Gbps digital coherent technology developed by NEC and a DP-QPSK modulation system to support high-capacity transmissions of a maximum of 96 waves. Prior to its introduction, a test was conducted by integrating NEC’s 100Gbps transponder seamlessly into Internexa’s existing optical transmission system located on the optical layer of the current 80 x 10Gbps DWDM System provided by a third party vendor. The transponder earned higher marks than its competitors for its signal characteristics, implementation efficiency, footprint and energy-saving performance.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
