Infinera has announced that UFINET, a neutral infrastructure wholesale operator in Latin America, has selected Infinera’s industry-leading ICE6 800G coherent technology for its new national long-haul network in Colombia.
This deployment will double the capacity of UFINET’s current network, enabling it to meet the growing bandwidth needs of its customers and provide connectivity in regions currently unconnected. Deploying Infinera’s ICE6-powered Compact Modular Platform on UFINET’s network will enable the company to cost-effectively and seamlessly increase the number of connectivity services it can provide to its customers.
UFINET is a neutral infrastructure operator serving the wholesale telecommunications market, providing capacity services and connectivity with a 75,000 plus km optical fiber network connecting 17 countries in Latin America.
With Infinera’s ICE6 800G solution, UFINET will be able to offer new high-bandwidth connectivity with industry-leading optical performance throughout Colombia. UFINET plans to deploy Infinera’s 800G solution across its terrestrial network to deliver maximum capacity at the longest reach and offer enhanced service flexibility while reducing operating costs.
“UFINET aims to promote the development of next-gen, high-bandwidth Internet, voice and video services in regions across Latin America that need it the most,” said Juan Carlos Naranjo, Chief Technology Officer at UFINET.
