TIM Selects Cisco's CRS-3 for Core Upgrade

TIM, which serves over 55 million mobile users across Brazil, will invest 20 million BRL to upgrade its core network using the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System. The project includes the deployment of 12 routers by the end of November. Eight of the routers will be installed in the core network and four will be used for peering (providing Internet access).

The deployment is being carried out in partnership with Italtel.

"TIM is the first operator in Brazil and the second in Latin America to invest in the most advanced technology in IP networking equipment. With the capacity provided by this new equipment, you can download more than 15 high-definition films per minute, enabling a higher standard of quality, for example, allowing data flows to be redirected seamlessly in case of a fault", said Claudio Merulla, the executive in charge of TIM Brazil's Transport network.
