Aug. 17, 2020
The wholesale carrier is using the optical packet transport systems to double capacity on its fiber-optic network which includes a route between São Paulo and Belo Horizonte that Infinera asserts exhibits the highest demand in the country.

Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) says it has delivered its Groove (GX) Series G30 Compact Modular Platform to Brazil’s Vogel Telecom. The wholesale carrier is using the optical packet transport systems to double capacity on its fiber-optic network which includes a route between São Paulo and Belo Horizonte that Infinera asserts exhibits the highest demand in the country.

Vogel Telecom operates a fiber-optic network of more than 26,000 km. The fiber network connects more than 600 cities and 70 data centers in 13 Brazilian states to support connectivity services to customers that include Tier 1 carriers and internet service providers. Patria Investments is its controlling shareholder.

“Infinera’s solutions enabled us to quickly enhance our network to deliver higher bandwidth capacity to meet the needs of our customers during the pandemic,” said Daniel Cardoso, Vogel Telecom COO. “The COVID-19 pandemic caused businesses and families to adapt to the changing environment, which contributed to a significant spike in bandwidth needs for Brazil’s largest internet service providers. Infinera responded quickly to our needs and provided the right solutions to scale our network. Deploying Infinera’s compact modular solution will also provide Vogel with the ability to seamlessly evolve our network to higher bandwidth capacity with Infinera’s ICE6 technology in the future.”
