Dedicado boosts connectivity between Argentina and Uruguay with Ciena

Dedicado has deployed a high-capacity resilient network between Argentina and Uruguay using solutions from Ciena.

The company claims the link to be the first high-capacity 600G to 800G network between Argentina and Uruguay. Using Ciena’s coherent optical technology in both terrestrial and submarine network segments, the network is adaptive enough to support 5G over-the-top (OTT) services and data centre traffic while delivering up to 25.2 Tbps between the countries.

Ciena’s open, programmable architecture with WL5e optics allows Dedicado to rapidly scale its network, protect traffic from potential faults and drive greater network efficiency. Additionally, Dedicado improves operational efficiencies with the deployment of a single technology across both terrestrial and submarine links and increases network capacity with the deployment of 600G and 800G wavelengths. Ciena’s WL5e delivers lower cost per bit and provides more service density, while using less power in comparison to competing commercial solutions.

Arturo Vargas, CEO of Dedicado, said: “Ciena’s WaveLogic technology not only prepares our network for today’s digital content requirements, but also sets us on a path to support future demands. As a sign of confidence, Dedicado continues to reinvest in Uruguay by executing one of the largest local investment projects.”
