SAN DIEGO -- Brasil Telecom GlobeNet will strengthen their North American product strategy, expanding its solutions capacity and strengthening security with an optical platform from Nokia Siemens Networks.

The deployment of the flexible, high-capacity SURPASS hiT 7300 Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform is a first in North America for Nokia Siemens Networks. Other components of the turnkey solution are Nokia Siemens Networks’ Telecommunications Network Management System and a services package including network design, commissioning, installation as well as training and extended care.

The optical platform provides Brasil Telecom GlobeNet with a scalable transport backbone that securely and cost-effectively accommodates the high traffic volumes required by its Tier-1 carrier customers, and supports leading-edge Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) technology.

“After an extensive evaluation process, it was clear that Nokia Siemens Networks’ DWDM solution delivers best-in-class performance, giving us the flexibility, high capacity and improved redundancy essential for our operational and commercial objectives,” said Luiz Alonso, director, engineering and operations, Brasil Telecom GlobeNet. “Additionally, their ability to provide a turnkey solution and their commitment to deploy quickly suited our needs.”
