Sogetel deploys Transmode to expand optical network

Canadian telecom operator Sogetel has deployed Transmode to expand its optical network  infrastructure to enhance reach and performance across Quebec.

Speed and capacity for Sogetel’s metro networks in over 20 cities in the province, including Montreal and Quebec City, will be the result of the investment in optical network infrastructure.

Sogetel is deploying Transmode’s TM-Series of new packet optical system to significantly increase capacity across the region-wide network. Transmode’s team preconfigured the network at  their headquarters in Stockholm. Transmode’s engineers and Sak Data transported and installed the network in two weeks — without any interruption to ongoing services.

Sogetel can migrate the new infrastructure to integrated Layer 2 packet-optical, 100G or greater and ROADMs at a later date within the same chassis, giving Sogetel a fully-scalable and flexible network to match growing customer demand.

Sogetel can offer expanded solutions to meet the demand for data center interconnect and business Ethernet access.

“Our engineers were trained on site in Canada in just two weeks by the team from Transmode and Sak Data. The smooth transition meant no interruptions to our customers’ business and now we are able to increase capacity and service flexibility as they require,” said Isis Thiago de Souza, VP Technology and Business Development at Sogetel.
