Media Commerce picks Ciena’s 800G technology to build backbone network in Colombia

Media Commerce, a telecommunications operator located in Colombia, has rolled out a new high-speed network using Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e) coherent optical technology.

This is designed to support up to 800Gb/s capacity per channel across terrestrial and submarine applications.

This robust network, providing connectivity services across more than 300 towns, helps Media Commerce stay ahead of the country’s growing demand for bandwidth-consuming services like streaming video and cloud-based applications.

Andrés Gallego Garzón, Chief Marketing Officer, Media Commerce, said: “A new network allows us to offer state-of-the-art 100GbE and 400GbE services and flexible spectrum services to support businesses and private networks across the country.

“Wholesale companies, content delivery networks, over-the-top providers and various other companies are able to improve and optimize the interconnections of their data centers located not only in Bogotá, but throughout the country.”

One of the most critical features of the new network is its ultra-low latency, made possible by WL5e’s extended reach performance. This translates into greater scalability and transport speeds, as well as improved resiliency and performance.

“By reducing latency in half, Media Commerce can offer express channels from Bogotá to Barranquilla without regeneration points, which is a huge win for the country,” said Fabio Medina, Vice President of Sales for Canada, CALA and MSOs, Ciena.
