Dec. 23, 2013
Telefónica Vivo of Brazil will deploy Coriant's hiT 7300 optical transport platform, hiT 7100 OTN/MPLS-TP switch, and TNMS network management system for its backbone fiber-optic network. The 100-Gbps optical transport and Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching the equipment will provide will enable Telefónica Vivo to enhance broadband connectivity while reducing total cost of ownership, Coriant says.

Telefónica Vivo of Brazil will deploy Coriant's hiT 7300 optical transport platform, hiT 7100 OTN/MPLS-TP switch, and TNMS network management system for its backbone fiber-optic network. The 100-Gbps optical transport and Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching the equipment will provide will enable Telefónica Vivo to enhance broadband connectivity while reducing total cost of ownership, Coriant says.

Coriant says that its systems’ 40/100G coherent transmission technology, ROADM architecture, and integrated packet and optical service capabilities were features that led Telefónica Vivo to choose Coriant for the upgrade contract. Coriant says its portfolio also will provide operational cost savings through improved efficiencies in space and power.

"The reliability and scalability of our optical service infrastructure is critical as we continue to introduce new and innovative digital services to consumer and business customers throughout Brazil," commented Leonardo Capdeville, director at Vivo. "These new services require flexible and resilient connectivity, and always-on performance. The outstanding quality and stability of the Coriant portfolio of products, and a proven service and support team with exceptional optical networking expertise, were key decision factors as we looked to expand the capability of our backbone network and enhance the quality of experience for our end-user customers."

"Telefónica Vivo is at the leading edge of bringing services to market that demonstrate how information and communication technologies have the potential to radically transform businesses such as healthcare," said Herbert Merz, president and CEO, Coriant. "We are pleased to extend our strategic relationship with Telefónica Vivo and deliver the high-quality solutions that allow them to meet the performance requirements of all their service offerings."
