C3ntro Telecom offers broadband connectivity, international voice, and SMS; it also offers hosted services to customer in Mexico and Latin America.

Tejas Networks (BSE: 540595) (NSE: TEJASNET) says it will supply optical transport technology to C3ntro Telecom. The Mexican wholesale carrier, an existing Tejas Networks customer, will use the technology to upgrade its fiber backbone and broadband networks.

C3ntro Telecom offers broadband connectivity, international voice, and SMS; it also offers hosted services to customer in Mexico and Latin America. Its network platform and relationships include more than 300 direct interconnects and in-country partners worldwide. To keep up with services demand for such applications as data center interconnect, broadband work from home, video-on-demand, and online learning, C3ntro Telecom will deploy the Tejas multi-terabit TJ1600 OTN/DWDM platform (see "Tejas Networks debuts TJ1600S/I disaggregated packet-optical switch at India Mobile Congress 2019").

"We are happy to select Tejas for our next phase of network expansion,” commented Simon Masri, CEO at C3ntro Telecom. “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. Tejas products have stood the test of time in providing consistent high availability with an SLA of 99.999%, enabling highly reliable service delivery to other Tier 1 international carriers using our platform."

Added Sanjay Nayak, managing director and CEO of Tejas Networks, "We are pleased to expand our partnership with C3ntro Telecom. 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 fiber-optic network infrastructure."
