OAKLAND, CA — SuperOnda Telecom, located in the city of Volta Redonda, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, has selected Zhone Technologies, Inc., a provider of FTTx network access solutions, for its full fiber deployment. SuperOnda Telecom will use Zhone's MXK solution and 24xx ZNIDs to provide service to 3,000 homes in Volta Redonda. The telecom company is currently building fiber OSP to expand service to an additional 5,000 subscribers in 2014, and 7,000 subscribers in 2015.

Brazil closed the first quarter of 2013 with 96.5 million broadband accesses, according to Telebrasil. This is an increase of 37 percent in comparison to data collected in March 2012. Fixed broadband, in turn, had a total of 21 million accesses by March 2013. More than 2.4 million of those connections were activated within the last year. These growing statistics prove consumer demand is growing in the region, despite its current lack of affordable high speed access and wireless technologies.

To meet this growing demand for high speed broadband, SuperOnda Telecom is currently building 10G Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS) rings with Zhone's MXK Chassis, using ZNID 2424 and 2426 to provide advanced services to business and residential customers in Volta Redonda. Zhone's solution will allow SuperOnda Telecom to upgrade its transport without a heavy investment in metro access equipment. The deployment will make SuperOnda Telecom the only provider in the city offering pure FTTH services, allowing the company to offer the fastest broadband speeds for its customers at affordable costs.

Zhone's MXK platform is a fully redundant, carrier-grade all-IP platform and terabit access concentrator. Featuring high density, scalability and switching capacity, the MXK provides non-blocking capacity of up to 3,600 100 Mbps GPON subscribers or 360 1G Active Ethernet subscribers.
