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 in north east Brazil. This infrastructure links Salvador and Fortaleza, the capital cities of the Bahia and Ceará states, respectively, using a terrestrial Dispersion-Shifted Fiber (DSF) spanning more than 1,000 km. Fortaleza is also the landing point for several high-capacity submarine cables connecting Brazil with North America and Europe. Xtera’s 100G solution enabled TIM Brasil to achieve a tenfold capacity increase from the previous implementation of this route.
“The investments in innovation which enabled us to be the first operator to achieve 4 Tbit/s of capacity, with minimum regeneration in such a challenging link, reinforce TIM’s commitment to improve and expand its networks throughout Brazil,” said Cicero Olivieri, Director of Fixed & Transport Network of TIM Brasil. “This benefits not only our customers but also our international partners, who, with the approach of the World Cup and Olympics, require reliable and robust terrestrial connections for their traffic passing through the submarine cables in Fortaleza.”
