Xtera Communications has announced that its '100G-and-beyond' optical networking platform, Nu-Wave Optima, has been approved for use in Brazilian backbone networks.

The Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações – Anatel – has confirmed that Xtera’s equipment fully complies with the requirements of the Brazilian telecommunications authorities and will enable Brazilian operators to benefit from Xtera’s Wise RamanTM solution for long spans and long reach in their long-haul networks.

'Xtera is committed to offering innovative, high-performance, field-proven solutions to Brazilian backbone network operators aimed at coping with the bandwidth explosion fueled by IP traffic growth and maximising the value of their optical assets,' said Manuel Andrade, senior vice president for sales.

'Our optical networking platform has been deployed worldwide in many network topologies and environments. We are very pleased to have deployed terrestrial and submarine configurations of Nu-Wave Optima in TIM Brasil’s and GlobeNet’s networks after the comprehensive and thorough homologation process required by Anatel.'

Xtera says the Nu-Wave Optima is the ideal optical transport platform for equipping high-capacity, long-distance optical transmission infrastructures. Xtera deployed its first 100G optical networking equipment in the field in 2011 in CFE Telecom’s 22,000 km network in Mexico.
