Megacable and Nokia execute the first long-distance optical transmission channel in Mexico and Latin America.

This is the first optical channel that reaches 1.1 Tbps (Terabits per second), which represents a milestone for telecommunications in the region, said the companies in a press release.

The network will interconnect Megacable Data Centers throughout Mexico to provide fiber optic connectivity to its residential, business, corporate, government and operator users.

“We have worked in collaboration with Nokia, carrying out successful data transmission tests and now we have achieved this important advancement, without making any prior preparation for the test and with services operating. Having high-capacity channels on national routes helps us transport greater amounts of traffic with better performance,” highlighted Miguel Sol, engineering Director of Megacable.

Felipe Leão, director of Optical Transport for Latin America at Nokia, commented that Nokia's optical network solutions continue to evolve to allow innovative customers like Megacable to have cutting-edge technology to easily scale, seamlessly covering the needs of current transport and preparing the network for the needs of the future.

“We are pleased to have been an essential part of this successful trial with Megacable and we look forward to collaborating on future projects with them,” expressed Leão.

Solutions such as the long-distance optical transmission channel allow operators like Megacable and its subsidiaries MetroCarrier and ho1a Innovación “to provide the high-speed, low-latency ultra-broadband connectivity that is essential for the education, health, business and entertainment sectors of the future, while reducing network energy consumption and operating costs per bit.”

Megacables’s objective is to scale the capacity of its network and increase its long-distance data transmission speeds from 9.6 Tbps to 38.4 Tbps, interconnecting all its data centers nationwide.
