Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM) Brasil will deploy the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform in its long-haul fiber-optic network, the systems house has announced. The carrier, the second largest mobile services provider in Brazil, is improving network coverage and fulfilling the demand for high-speed networks in the largest cities in Brazil.

The deployment is a continuation of the carrier’s infrastructure upgrade begun to support the communication demands Brazil’s hosting of the 2014 World Cup created.

"To host the 2014 World Cup was no small undertaking and our company needed to be able to support the peaks in bandwidth demand. Over this next year we will continue to invest in our mobile backhaul network to meet the demands of our current customers," said Cicero Olivieri, Transport Network Director, TIM Brasil, via a Coriant press release. "For this network expansion, we needed a transport platform solution that will easily scale on-demand and provide that reliable 'always-on' service for our 74.2 million regular subscribers as well as the anticipated visitors to the Olympic Games. We selected the Coriant hiT 7300 solution because it offers the greatest level of optical layer performance and flexibility with the most cost-effective transport solution."

This flexibility will be important to TIM Brasil as bandwidth and use demands evolve, according to Coriant.

"In the near future we expect that the network will carry as much traffic as a small city at times," stated Roberto Cepparotti, vice president, Customer Operations Telecom Italia Global for Coriant. "Past experiences have shown us that the demand on the network can present a severe environment where the traffic demand peaks almost instantly, without any knowledge of what devices users will connect with, or their specific applications."
