Mexico’s Marcatel taps Ciena for carrier Ethernet solution

8 Sep 2016

Monterrey-based Marcatel has enlisted US vendor Ciena to deploy its carrier Ethernet solution to help expand its business service offerings in both Mexico and the United States. With this deployment, Marcatel notes that it will scale its network to handle the surging demand for cloud computing applications, streaming video and content distribution. With Ciena’s 8700 Packetwave platform, the telco expects to benefit from improved power efficiency and a compact footprint to provide 10GbE/100GbE services at great scale. Marcatel, which was formed in 1966, has an international presence in Mexico, the US, Canada, South America and parts of Europe.
