C3ntro Telecom, Tejas Networks boost backbone partnership
Tejas Networks has been contracted by C3ntro Telecom to upgrade its high-speed backbone and broadband network.
As Mexico’s major wholesale carrier, C3ntro covers Mexico City and other major urban areas and offers connectivity across the USA and LATAM.
Building on their existing partnership, the new contract will see C3ntro deploy Tejas' multi-terabit TJ1600 OTN/DWDM products to enhance bandwidth capacity on its optical backbone network and meet the massive surge in data centre interconnect, broadband traffic created by working from home (WFH), Video-on-Demand (VOD) and online learning.
The optical transport products will be deployed across all major metros in Mexico, to build a scalable and flexible fibre-optic network infrastructure.
Simon Masri, CEO at C3ntro Telecom commented: “We are happy to select Tejas for our next phase of network expansion. 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.”
Shirish Purohit, head of sales at Tejas Networks added: “We highly value our partnership with C3ntro. They have been able to quickly deliver new services with our software-defined hardware product architecture that supports flexibility of hardware to configure diverse services on the same platform with seamless upgrades to higher capacities.”
