Lumen Technologies has expanded its network infrastructure in México.

The enterprise technology platform - formerly known as CenturyLink - invested in new metropolitan networks with optical technology in order to triple the size of the current footprint and bring fibre connectivity to new locations in three cities. These include metropolitan rings of 45km in Guadalajara, 90km in Monterrey and 10 km in Mexico City.

Lumen's national ring in Mexico is approximately 3,600km in length and is joined by international routes in Monterrey. The company’s submarine cable system PAC (Pan-American Crossing) also connects Mexico to the city of Los Angeles, CA in the US, and Costa Rica and Panama in Central America.

Miguel de la Torre, Lumen LATAM sales director for the northern cluster explained: ‘We understand the importance of expanding and renewing our infrastructure to bring high quality services to our customers through fast and secure connections. This investment also follows the initiatives of the national government to strengthen telecommunication networks in Mexico, increasing its infrastructure and reach more users. Lumen will continue investing in the region to accompany business growth and government initiatives. This underscores our commitment to the development of the industry, not only in Mexico but in the region.’
