EdgeUno enhances network connectivity in Brazil and Mexico with Ciena’s 400ZR pluggables

Sept. 14, 2023
The Latin American-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider adds capacity to support cloud and on-demand services.

EdgeUno, a growing service (IaaS) company in Latin America, upgraded its data center interconnect (DCI) network with Ciena’s Waveserver 5 compact interconnect platform, powered by WaveLogic 5 Nano (WL5n) 400ZR coherent pluggables.

WL5n 100G–400G coherent pluggable transceivers are supported across Ciena’s coherent optical and packet networking platforms for data center interconnection (DCI), access, and metro-regional applications.

In a single-span DCI application, WL5n 400ZR pluggables offer an OIF-compliant design, allowing content and cloud providers to leverage the 400ZR ecosystem for supply and line interoperability benefits. Additionally, WL5n implements spectral shaping that enables reliable 400 Gb/s operation in fixed 75GHz grid systems, allowing maximum fiber capacity for single-span DCI applications, even for 120km distances.

EdgeUno’s customers in Brazil and Mexico now benefit from a more reliable and scalable network. With Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Nano 400ZR solution--a 400ZR– EdgeUno has doubled its network capacity from 200G channels to 400G per channel, improved its cloud service offerings, and reduced its carbon footprint by optimizing data center space and reducing energy consumption.

Using Ciena’s coherent technology, EdgeUno gains twice the bandwidth per wavelength deployed at what Ciena claims is a fraction of the power and space of the previous network technology. EdgeUno is also leveraging Ciena’s edge-optimized, compact Coherent ELS open line system to achieve lower latency, operational simplicity, and deliver a higher quality customer experience.

“To provide the best possible digital experience and support bandwidth-intensive applications like high-speed gaming, cloud-based services, and live video streaming, we need the most innovative and reliable technology available,” said Tiago Setti, director of network engineering for EdgeUno. “Ciena’s WaveLogic technology is critical in helping us meet our customers’ digital demands and supports our sustainability commitments.”
