Sky Brazil selects IP Infusion for 5G-ready backhaul

18 Jun 2019

Sky Brasil Servicos (Sky Brazil), the satellite TV giant-turned-4G operator, has enlisted US-based vendor IP Infusion to upgrade its networks using its OcNOS network operating system. The new solution will support Sky’s 5G-ready backhaul transport network by improving latency. Luis Otavio Marchezetti, engineering vice president at Sky Brasil, said that the upgrade will allow it to take advantage of the lower costs of disaggregated open network technology.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Sky operates TD-LTE networks in 23 of the country’s 26 states – and the Distrito Federal – and claimed a total of 329,837 subscribers at 31 March 2019, alongside more than five million pay-TV subscribers.
