Cable Color selects Transmode for high capacity network in Honduras

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Transmode, a global supplier of packet optical networking solutions, today announced that, through its partnership with NEC, it has delivered a new high-capacity network to Cable Color in Honduras. The new packet-optical network has been deployed to meet rapidly expanding capacity demands.

Cable Color, a cable TV service provider in Honduras, is experiencing rapid bandwidth growth from residential TV services, especially High Definition TV in addition to data services. The Transmode equipment has delivered the necessary high capacity optical network to meet both current and future demands and was designed and delivered by Transmode’s global sales partner NEC.

The new network is built on Transmode’s TM-Series and uses its Layer 2 capabilities which are particularly effective for the handling of video and data traffic. The network utilizes the Ethernet Muxponder (EMXP II) 120 unit which provides 120G of Ethernet switching with 12x 10G transponders integrated into a single plug-in unit.

Geographically, the packet-optical network covers the northern region of Honduras, with major hubs in the industrial city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras and also spans to Puerto Barrios, in Guatemala to interconnect with Cable Color’s operations in Guatemala. The new infrastructure benefits from a low power design and offers compact nodes at all locations, saving both energy and space. It now enables Cable Color to carry digital TV signals and data across a highly sophisticated packet-optical infrastructure.

A spokesman at Cable Color, commented, “Our primary goal is to provide all our customers with the best quality, high-speed services through our fiber optic network. NEC, with Transmode’s technology, has helped us to design and build a highly efficient, flexible and scalable optical network. We can now extend our HDTV offering and handle more data capacity to meet the growing demands of our customers.”

Björn Andersson, Vice President Americas for Transmode, added, “We are delighted to have won another new customer in Central America through our longstanding partner NEC. This project demonstrates both how well our technology works in the cable TV market and that our close collaboration and partnership with NEC is working very well around the globe.”
