Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, has announced that Tely, a Brazilian telecommunications company, has deployed the Infinera Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform in order to scale its optical transport infrastructure in response to customer traffic growth and the connectivity demands of new user applications.

The Groove G30 enables Tely to expand current network capacity by 20 times while reducing operational and capital expenses by up to 40 percent with an ultra-compact, low latency and power-efficient optical transport solution.

With a presence throughout Brazil’s major north-eastern states and in mega-city São Paulo, Tely offers a wide variety of resilient and secure connectivity services including Gigabit Passive Optical Networks, dedicated internet, and local area network interconnects. Tely’s customers include large enterprises, service providers, and Tier 1 carriers, as well as residential consumers.

To enhance service performance as traffic on the network increases, Tely deployed the Groove G30 to scale high-traffic routes and provide high-capacity 100 gigabits per second (100G) and 200G interconnect services. This deployment marks one of the first 200G services in Brazil and represents one of the largest optical infrastructure deployments within the states of Ceará, Rio Grande do Norte, Pernambuco, Alagoas, Paraíba, Sergipe and Bahia.

“To address the rising volumes of customer traffic and continue to deliver the highest quality of service across the markets we serve, we required a best-in-class optical transport solution that met key performance criteria including economical scalability and ease of deployment,” said Leonardo Stefanis Lins, CEO at Tely.

“The ultra-compact and innovative modular design of the Groove G30 proved an ideal fit, meeting these critical needs while simplifying the provisioning of high-speed services.”

Bob Jandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera, responded, “We are pleased to help Tely expand its network with a unique solution optimised for seamless scalability and resilient connectivity.” He added, “Tely’s deployment of the Groove G30 is another example of Infinera’s industry-leading solutions enabling service providers around the world to meet the surging demand for high capacity connectivity.”
