Telefonica Mexico selects ZTE for 100G OTN rollout

1 Nov 2017

Telefonica Mexico (Movistar) has selected Chinese vendor ZTE as the exclusive supplier for its planned ‘beyond 100G’ Optical Transport Network (OTN) deployment. The contract covers major markets such as Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey, and will see ZTE construct a high reliability, low latency, easy maintenance network for the telco, which has found its existing transport networks put under pressure in recent years due to the rapidly increasing demand for mobile data. For its part, the vendor will deliver its ZXONE 9700 solution, an E-OTN device with ultra-large cross-connect capacity.
