Brazil's Ligue Telecom Uses Zhone for Fiber Network

  • Ligue Telecom
  • Zhone Technologies
OAKLAND, CA — Zhone Technologies, Inc., a provider of FTTx network access solutions, announced that its MXK multi-service access node (MSAN) system has been deployed as the core enabler of Ligue Telecom's new GPON solution in Brazil. A combination of the MXK and Zhone Network Interface Device (zNID) Optical Network Terminals (ONT) were used to support customers across the service footprint.

Ligue Telecom, servicing Brazil since 2006, provides VOIP and data services to residential and business customers and also provides wholesale termination for other providers and companies in the Parana state of Brazil, one of the fastest developing parts of the country.

Ligue Telecom's choice to deploy GPON is a direct response to customer demand for higher speed, premium services with flexible pricing. MXK allowed Ligue Telecom to maintain competitive service tiers while achieving faster return on investment (ROI) over lower capacity platforms. The service provider began integrating Zhone's MXK terabit access platform into its network in 2012 and plans to add premium GPON services, expanding the network to service several additional cities in the region by mid-2013.

Dual Support for Active Ethernet/GPON
Ligue Telecom will immediately benefit from the platform's streamlined network upkeep, output management and customer provisioning capabilities, which minimize the resources needed for support, maintenance and technical personnel training. The MXK's ability to support Active Ethernet and GPON on the same system enables Ligue Telecom to configure its networks with maximum flexibility and efficiency.

A Future-Proof Solution
Longer term, Zhone's future-proof MXK platform offers Ligue Telecom multi-access points at highly efficient capacities and costs that will allow the operator to seamlessly and cost-effectively integrate additional broadband technologies such as 10G GPON as customer demand dictates. Zhone's MXK platform is a fully redundant, carrier-grade all-IP platform and the industry's first terabit access concentrator. It features density, scalability and switching capacity and provides non-blocking capacity of up to 3,600 100 Mbps GPON subscribers or 360 1 Gbps Active Ethernet subscribers.
