Sumicity taps Padtec for DWDM expansion in RDJ

21 Jun 2017

Regional Brazilian telecoms operator Sumicity has enlisted local vendor Padtec to expand its DWDM optical network capacity in the interior of the state of Rio de Janeiro. The contract covers a 180km fibre network, with terminations in the capital and the municipality of Guapimirim. According to Sumicity, the expansion represents the first 100Gbps-capable network in the interior of Rio de Janeiro.

Founded in 2004, Sumicity offers broadband, voice and pay-TV services over its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure in 70 municipalities across Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. The telco expects to launch commercial services in Espirito Santo later this year.
