Paratus Chooses Infinera For Namibian Network

TM-Series packet-optical platform brings more bandwidth to Windhoek

Infinera, a maker of InP photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and related equipment, has announced the deployment of its TM-Series packet-optical platform for Paratus Telecom's metro network in Africa.

This is Paratus' first offering of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networking for services in Windhoek, Namibia's capital city. With its acquisition of a local voice company in 2014, Paratus Telecom has experienced immense growth in converged data traffic requiring next-generation network technology built on an fibre-optic infrastructure. 

According to TeleGeography, bandwidth growth in Africa has grown 51 percent compounded annually over the last five years, faster than any other continent.

"The Infinera TM-Series packet-optical network solution effectively addresses our bandwidth requirements to keep up with the rapid growth in converged network services," said Samantha Geyser, executive of planning.  "Built with the operator in mind, the TM-Series increases bandwidth, flexibility and functionality of our new metro WDM transport network. This allows Paratus to take advantage of cost efficient Ethernet services, ultra-low latency and low power consumption."

"Infinera is pleased to provide Paratus a scalable packet-optical solution that supports a wide range of applications," said Nick Walden, senior vice president, EMEA sales at Infinera. "The Infinera TM-Series enables Paratus to deploy multi-service transport services to its customers with speed and bandwidth scalability."



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
