Latin America. Beyond Technology and Infinera successfully deployed a 3.6 Terabit network for a network operator in the Middle East to support increased global and local demand for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Powered by Infinera: ICE6 800G, installed in record time ahead of this sporting tournament, in support of one of the world's largest streaming platforms. The implementation ensured fast, seamless, high-quality and uninterrupted connectivity for sports fans around the world.
This capacity enhancement was enabled by Beyond Technology for one of the largest telecommunications companies in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia Pacific, to cope with the substantial increase in demand and enable a seamless streaming experience for end users.
Qatar, a country with a population of around 3 million, welcomed nearly 1.5 million visitors during the 4-week-long sporting event. In addition to providing global streaming services, the upgrade ensured that the network could support local streaming services for up to 500,000 people per day.
Beyond Technology, a Gold Partner of Infinera's select PartnerPlus program, selected ICE6 800G technology for this critical project. "ICE6 technology builds on Infinera's legacy of delivering innovative optical solutions that provide significant value for our customers. ICE6's industry-leading performance and economics, coupled with Beyond Technology's strong presence in the region, enabled our customer to deliver a high-quality streaming experience for World Cup fans," said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Infinera.
