TIM Brasil, Xtera deploy 100G aerial network in North, Centre West

16 Dec 2014

Cellco TIM Brasil, in partnership with Xtera, has upgraded its transmission infrastructure linking Manaus, Porto Velho and Cuiaba to 100Gbps, as part of a project to add 100G traffic in a large ring in the northern part of Brazil, representing about 50% of the whole Brazilian territory. Xtera deployed Tim Brasil’s first 100G network sections in 2013 (in the Amazon region and a link to the Fortaleza submarine network landing point). The latest deployment saw 2,655km of high-capacity aerial fibre lit across Brazil’s North and Centre West regions (1,010km from Manaus to Porto Velho and 1,645km from Porto Velho to Cuiaba) in a region that the press release notes is ‘fast growing and hungry for more bandwidth’.
