Cisco to support Brazil’s TIM to replace IP equipment

Expected to improve TIM’s network quality and expand its capacity

By CBR Staff Writer

Brazil’s telecom operator TIM has taken an initiative of replacing all the core IP equipment (National Multiservice IP Network) with the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System.

TIM is investing BRL20m to improve its network quality and expand its capacity as part of its infrastructure technology development project.

The routers has an individual capacity of up to 4.5 terabits per second, up to 14 times faster than the equipment currently used by TIM and up to three times faster than other market technologies, Cisco said.

The CRS-3 routing system is manufactured by Cisco and deployed in partnership with Italtel.

Eight of the routers will be installed in the core network and four will be used for peering (providing Internet access).

The company said the equipment enables transmission capability, quality, security and technology for current and future applications (Internet, video, voice and cloud services) by providing clients speed, reliability and security for voice and data traffic.
