Tejas Networks has announced that C3ntro Telecom, a leading wholesale carrier based in Mexico, has chosen to expand its existing partnership with Tejas Networks for the upgrade of its high-speed backbone and broadband network.

C3ntro will deploy Tejas’ multi-terabit TJ1600 OTN/DWDM products to enhance bandwidth capacity on their optical backbone network to meet the massive surge in data centre interconnect, broadband traffic from work from home (WFH), video-on-demand (VOD) and online learning.

Broadband is a key growth segment in Mexico’s telecoms market. With a population of 129 million, there is significant pent-up demand for fibre and mobile broadband services in the country. C3ntro Telecom is playing a vital role in providing high speed voice and data connectivity for residential and enterprise customers in Mexico, USA and LATAM.

Commenting on the development, Sanjay Nayak, managing director and CEO, Tejas Networks, said, “We are pleased to expand our partnership with C3ntro Telecom. We are delighted that we have been selected by C3ntro to deploy our optical transport products across all major metros in Mexico, to build a scalable and flexible fiber-optic network infrastructure.”

Meanwhile, Simon Masri, CEO, C3ntro Telecom, said, “We are happy to select Tejas for our next phase of network expansion. Starting with our first MPLS-TP/PTN deployment from Mexico City to Dallas in 2018, to recently fortifying our core network with 100G OTN/DWDM, Tejas’ pay-asyou-grow solution has been the right approach for our network expansion. Tejas products have stood the test of time in providing consistent high availability with an SLA of 99.999 per cent, enabling highly reliable service delivery to other tier-1 international carriers using our platform.”

Further, Shirish Purohit, head of sales, Tejas Networks, added, “We highly value our partnership with C3ntro. They have been able to quickly deliver new services with our software-defined hardware product architecture that supports flexibility of hardware to configure diverse services on the same platform with seamless upgrades to higher capacities.”
