Orange Business Services has announced plans to increase the capacity of its Latin American network by 10X starting in October. The network upgrade will initially target Brazil and Chile, then Argentina, Peru, and Panama. Orange says the network upgrade is driven by increased demand for such high-speed broadband services as IP VPN and business VPN), international Ethernet links, and video services such as telepresence.

The new network ring will connect Latin America to the East Coast of the United States via Brazil and to the West Coast of the United States via Chile, through Peru and Panama. In addition increasing capacity, Orange expects the upgrade to boost quality of service for customers with improved latency to the West Coast, while also supporting the growing capacity requirements from Asia-Pacific.

"We continue to see increased global expansion not only by our multinational customers looking to grow in Latin America," said Mauro Cruzeiro, vice president of Latin America for Orange Business Services. "We also see more and more Latin American enterprises expanding within the region and beyond."

Orange Business Services says it has 122 points of presence across 31 countries in Latin America. It serves more than 400 customers in the region from such sectors as energy, government, healthcare, retail, telecommunications, and transportation.
