Digital infrastructure firm, GigNet is expanding its high-capacity fibre optic network in the Cancun region of Mexico.

The move is to support the rapid growth of the company’s Smart Communities business segment for planned developments across the region. It has selected Tejas Networks as the supplier of last-mile access products based on GPON/NG-PON technology; ultra-converged packet aggregation products based on MPLS-TP/PTN technology, and terabit-scale optical backbone products based on OTN/DWDM technology. These will all be centrally managed by an SDN-ready network management system.

Paul A. Moore, chairman and CEO at GigNet explained: ‘GigNet has ambitious plans in Cancun and Riviera Maya as the leader in the digital transformation for enterprises, residential developers and service providers seeking high-speed connectivity and access to services such as streaming, cloud services, social media, biometric security, and data analytics. We selected Tejas for their innovative, software-defined hardware architecture that enables extreme service agility and seamless feature upgrades to new technologies, to help us maintain our competitive advantage. They have also demonstrated outstanding technical support capabilities locally in Mexico and have been very responsive to our rapidly accelerating customer installations.’

Sanjay Nayak, managing director and CEO at Tejas Networks added: ‘We are delighted to partner with GigNet as they increase their robust, flexible and scalable network to profitably deliver premium, SLA-driven services to their customers. We are excited that they have selected our end-to-end optical and access products for this prestigious network in Mexico.’
