C&W Networks has deployed the Coriant mTera universal transport platform in its network to optimize its network backbone.

The news comes as the company says it is preparing for current and future high-speed service demands and to simplify multiservice bandwidth management.

“Adding new 100Gbit/s port services, reducing network complexity and streamlining service delivery are key drivers behind our network-wide optimisation initiative,” said Paul Scott, president of C&W Networks. “When it comes to multiservice bandwidth management, the Coriant mTera solution has exceeded expectations and is helping us differentiate and innovate our broadband and IP capacity services, ensuring the continued excellence of both customer service experience and infrastructure across the Caribbean and Latin America region.”

The Coriant mTera solution enables C&W Networks to aggregate and groom diverse traffic types on a compact, scalable and converged platform. The deployment project for the solution will be deployed in multiple phases, with initial deployment at core sites in Colombia, Curaçao, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, and the United States.

“Our industry-leading mTera solution offers operators like C&W Networks a pragmatic approach to service migration by providing completely protocol agnostic transport and switching capabilities in a single platform,” said Uwe Fischer, executive vice president of R&D and PLM, and CTO at Coriant.
