Paratus Telecom deploys Infinera packet-optical network

Paratus Telecom has deployed Infinera TM-Series for its metro network in Africa.

The deployment of Infinera’s transport networks is Paratus’ first offering of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networking for connectivity services in Windhoek, Namibia’s capital city.

The Infinera TM-Series packet-optical network solution enables Paratus to deliver transport services with low power, high density and bandwidth scalability for the businesses and consumers.

Paratus Telecom is investing substantially in transport networks built on a fiber-optic infrastructure after experiencing immense growth in converged data traffic following the acquisition of a local voice company in 2014.

Infinera claims that TM-Series packet-optical platform provides multi-service capabilities including MEF 2.0 certified Ethernet services, multi-protocol label switching — transport profile (MPLS-TP) and Optical Transport Network (OTN) aggregation engineered for enterprise services, mobile fronthaul and metro aggregation applications.

The Infinera TM-Series provides an optimized 10 gigabit per second (Gb/s) transport solution upgradeable to 100 Gb/s.

“Infinera TM-Series solution effectively addresses our bandwidth requirements to keep up with the rapid growth in converged network services,” said Samantha Geyser, executive of Planning at Paratus.
