Mexican information technology and communications specialist Alestra has partnered with Alcatel-Lucent in order to bring to the market a broadband offering with speeds of up to 400 Gbps. Alestra claims its new network has no parallel in capacity and service in Latin America, allowing the company to deal with the growing need of the corporate sector as a result of the evolution of cloud services.

The Alestra network, based on Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform, is said to offer unmatched capacity and speed with channels of 400 Gigabits per second, as demonstrated in recent tests conducted in the company’s live network in Mexico. The company says this is the first time that the equivalent of 50,000 HD videos and over six millions of phone calls has been transmitted simultaneously in a Latin American network.

Alejandro Irigoyen, director of operations and systems at Alestra, said: 'Once again Alestra revolutionises ICTs optimising our network to provide the most innovative solutions of telecommunications and informatics to the Mexican market. With the deployment of Alestra network leveraging Alcatel-Lucent technology, once again we reinforce our offer and our commitment to the industry, making us the first supplier on the continent able to provide businesses with the best value proposition in terms of bandwidth.'

'The DWDM solution based on the 1830 PSS provides Alestra greater efficiency, flexibility and the scalability required to continue to innovate and lead in corporate services in the Mexican market. With this new network, Alestra will deliver services of up to 400 Gbps between two points on the network, providing greater capabilities in its transport services at the same time that it ensures the successful evolution to cloud services,' added Freddy Turriaf, commercial director of Alcatel-Lucent in Mexico.
