Vogel Telecom, a leading wholesale carrier in Brazil, has deployed the Groove (GX) Series G30 Compact Modular Platform from networking solutions provider Infinera to double capacity on its network.
The network includes Brazil’s route with the highest bandwidth demand, between São Paulo and Belo Horizonte. The partners say that Vogel’s new network, powered by Infinera, offers the region’s leading Tier 1 carriers and internet service providers the high capacity and performance required to meet the rising bandwidth demands of their end users.
Vogel Telecom deployed Infinera’s compact modular solution to upgrade its national fibre network infrastructure, which spans over 26,000 kilometres and supports high-capacity connectivity services across more than 600 cities in 13 Brazilian states.
Infinera says that the GX G30’s simple installation and open features enabled Vogel to quickly and cost-effectively respond to customer demand.
This, it seems, was a critical consideration in a country which, like so many other areas of the world, has seen a surge in bandwidth demand in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic as businesses and families have adapted to the changing environment.
As Alexandre Salomao, Infinera country manager for Brazil, puts it: “Wholesale carriers like Vogel are experiencing unprecedented growth in network capacity requirements from service provider customers due to the increased use of bandwidth stemming from the rise in remote workers and distance learning.”
