JULY 15, 2009 -- MetroNet, a Mexican telecom service provider, is upgrading its networking infrastructure with the CM-4000 portfolio from Orckit-Corrigent, a Carrier Ethernet + Transport (CE+T) networking vendor. MetroNet is deploying the system in a few large metropolitan networks. The CM-4000 upgrades MetroNet's "carrier of carriers" network and enables high-end connectivity to most of the Mexican telecom operators.
"MetroNet has experienced significant traffic growth due to increasing demand for networking connectivity services," says Miguel Angel Fernandez, chief technology officer at MetroNet. "With Orckit-Corrigent's CM-4000 portfolio, we can better serve our customers by offering transport-class capabilities in a packet-based network and improve our business case by increasing our network capacity, offering multiservice solutions, and reducing our total cost of ownership. We selected Orckit-Corrigent mainly due to their advanced and cost-effective technology, together with their standard Layer 2 MPLS capabilities that enable interoperability with our existing install base."
"Orckit-Corrigent is pleased to provide MetroNet with our CM-4000 Carrier Ethernet solution," says Izhak Tamir, cofounder, chairman of the board, and president at Orckit-Corrigent. "We are committed to establishing a long-term relationship with MetroNet and the Mexican telecommunications market."
