Transtelco Deploys Ciena Along US-Mexico Border

Transtelco, a regional operator serving businesses and carriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, has deployed a 400 km high-capacity network span using Ciena's WDM transport technology. Transtelco provides metro and long-haul transport, dedicated IP access, co-location and voice termination services as a wholesale carrier and directly to end-user customers, ranging from small and medium businesses to enterprises.

The new link is the longest span in Transtelco's 4,000 km fiber network, adding route diversity, redundancy and bandwidth availability. The deployment includes Ciena's CoreStream Agility Optical Transport System and CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Service Platform for the network expansion. Transtelco has also deployed additional platforms from Ciena's packet-optical transport portfolio to aggregate traffic onto the point-to-point link and increase connectivity to the operator's metro rings. Financial terms were not disclosed.
