Indian networking products company Tejas Networks has been selected by C3ntro Telecom to upgrade the high-speed backbone and broadband network of the Mexico-based wholesale carrier.
C3ntro will deploy Tejas’ multi-terabit TJ1600 OTN/DWDM products to enhance bandwidth capacity on its optical backbone network in order to meet the massive surge in data centre interconnect and broadband traffic from work from home, video on demand and online learning.
As the partners point out, broadband is a key growth segment in Mexico's telecoms market and, with a population of 129 million, there is significant pent-up demand for fibre and mobile broadband services in the country. C3ntro Telecom says it is playing a vital role in providing high-speed voice and data connectivity for residential and enterprise customers in Mexico, the USA and Latin America.
“We are delighted that we have been selected by C3ntro to deploy our optical transport products across all major metros in Mexico, to build a scalable and flexible fibre-optic network infrastructure,” said Sanjay Nayak, managing director and CEO of Tejas Networks
“We are happy to select Tejas for our next phase of network expansion. Starting with our first MPLS-TP/PTN deployment from Mexico City to Dallas in 2018, to recently fortifying our core network with 100G OTN/DWDM, Tejas’ pay-as-you-grow solution has been the right approach for our network expansion,” said Simon Masri, CEO at C3ntro Telecom.
