Infinera and NEC Corporation announced that Neutral Networks deployed Infinera’s ICE6 technology for its fiber optic network NEXT between Mexico and the United States.
Neutral Networks’ NEXT network uses Infinera’s ICE6 800G coherent technology to provide high capacity services.
Neutral Networks will establish a neutral, diverse, 100 percent underground and ultra-low latency fiber network to connect the City of Laredo in the United States with the City of Monterrey in Mexico – using Infinera’s ICE6 technology on the GX Series Compact Modular Platform.
Neutral Networks’ NEXT network will aggregate and transport 10G and 100G Ethernet services onto high-speed wavelengths across more than 175 miles from Mexico to the United States without regeneration.
Infinera’s ICE6 promises to offer seamless services, lower costs and power per bit, and enables Neutral Networks to provide more services per fiber. NEC provided integration services, underpinned by over 20 years of experience in the optical domain.
“We found Infinera’s ICE6 solution and NEC’s engineering capabilities a reliable and ideal fit to ensure a seamless implementation at a scale,” said Noe Garza, CTO at Neutral Networks. “Our NEXT network is revolutionizing the telecoms industry in Mexico.”
