Vogel Telecom Picks Ciena to Deploy 800G Network in Sao Paulo


Vogel Telecom, a wholesale and B2B telecommunications provider in Brazil, recently deployed Sao Paulo’s first 800G optical network to support customers in delivering high-quality cloud, edge computing, video streaming and gaming experiences.

Using Ciena’s coherent optical platform, Vogel can transport the most capacity over a single wavelength and remotely turn up capacity quickly and easily as needed through Ciena’s pay-as-you-grow model.

Vogel deployed Ciena’s Waveserver 5 compact interconnect platform, powered by WaveLogic 5 Extreme coherent optics, to deliver efficient high-bandwidth 100GbE and 400GbE connectivity services over an 800Gb/s wavelength.

The new infrastructure helps Vogel deploy Internet Protocol (IP) and high-capacity business services faster, easier and safer, as well as support the launch of new services like Nx100G and 400G in the Sao Paulo metro area. Ciena’s Waveserver 5 also delivers efficient network utilization, lower latency and enhanced service reliability for Vogel to improve overall network performance and quality of end-user experiences.

Additionally, Vogel is using Ciena’s Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) software to provision, monitor and manage its network. MCP adds more automation and improves the speed at which Vogel can scale and release new services.

“By upgrading to 800G, Vogel continues to cement its position as a leader in high-capacity connectivity services. With Ciena, Vogel leverages this robust next-generation network to competitively scale and deliver high quality experiences for customers now and well into the future,” said, Daniel Cardoso, Chief Operating Officer, Vogel Telecom.

“Ciena’s industry-leading Waveserver 5 optical solution enables Vogel to optimize its network in the face of today’s growing bandwidth demands and fast-changing customer needs. With a smarter and more dynamic network that can adapt, Vogel delivers on its service-level agreements and paves the way for exciting digital experiences in Brazil,” explained, Fernando Capella, Country Manager, Ciena Brazil.
