OTN Systems, the global market leader in fibre-optic-based telecommunications backbone networks in metros will install a fibre-optic backbone for the Tren Urbano metro line in Lima, thereby gaining entry to the Peruvian market.

The Lima Metro, known to locals as the Tren Eléctrico is an electric mass transit line in the Lima Metropolitan Area. The OTN Systems flagship product OTN-X3M with a transport capacity of 10Gb/s and carrier grade Ethernet features will be installed in this new metro project to support all the applications needed to operate the metro line.

The OTN-X3M product family is the most reliable transmission equipment with the most secure IP / Ethernet features available on the market today. This multiservice network allows end-users to optimise the CAPEX and OPEX of their fibre-optic telecom backbone with a user-friendly end-to-end management system.

OTN Systems first entered the Latin American market more than 15 years ago with projects in Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil and Chile.
