TIM Brasil, Xtera String 100G Across Amazon
DALLAS -- TIM Brasil, the fastest growing operator in Brazil, selected and deployed 100G optical networking equipment supplied by Xtera Communications, Inc., a leading global provider of optical networking solutions, on a long-haul transmission infrastructure. This newly built infrastructure connects three Amazon states in the northern part of Brazil by their capitals: Manaus, Macapá and Belém. Xtera’s Nu-Wave Optima 100G optical networking platform offers both the high capacity and long-span capabilities that help TIM Brasil expand reach and increase the capacity of transmission network through the Amazon Region in Brazil.
This new optical backbone network was built using the tower transmission lines and power substations of the LT Amazon consortium to transport the TIM Brasil cables across 27 cities in the states of Amazonas, Pará and Amapá. Given the challenging geography of this network environment, the lengths of 5 out of the 14 spans that make up this infrastructure exceed 200 km between sites where active optical equipment is positioned. The longest of these spans reaches nearly 260 km.
