Infinera Enables Rapid Activation of High-capacity Services for Telxius in Latin America

Telefonica’s global infrastructure group Telxius is now offering its customers on-demand software-defined terabit capacity subsea service activation on its SAM-1 subsea network between the U.S., Brazil and Puerto Rico.

These on-demand services are enabled by Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth software, activating capacity on the Intelligent Transport Network deployed by Telxius. The Telefonica unit operators a a 65,000-kilometer (km) international network of high-capacity fibre-optic subsea cables, of which it owns 31,000 km.

Telxius also owns the SAM-1 subsea network connecting the U.S. with Central America and South America, where Infinera solutions are deployed, as well as in the terrestrial backhaul associated with them. The 25,000-km SAM-1 subsea network provides capacity and IP services to major service providers aiming at having the best access to more than 300 million Telefónica subscribers.

The Infinera DTN-X XTC Series provides the foundation for the Intelligent Transport Network delivering terabit per second transmission capacity for Telxius. The XTC Series simplifies network operations with high-capacity optical super-channels enabled by Infinera’s unique large-scale photonic integrated circuits and integrated packet-aware Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching, offering the flexibility to simultaneously address both subsea and terrestrial networks. With Infinera Instant Bandwidth, Telxius can deploy bandwidth in 100 gigabits per second increments without having to pre-deploy additional line cards in the system.

“Our customers demand rapid activation of high-capacity services,” said Carlos Dasi, CTO of Telxius Cable. “Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network with Instant Bandwidth enables Telxius to offer highly differentiated, on-demand subsea terabit service activation to our customers.”

“Telxius’ on-demand subsea service offering underscores the value Intelligent Transport Networks and Instant Bandwidth deliver to global service providers,” said Scott Jackson, Infinera Vice President, Subsea Business Group.
