Campinas/SP, January 23, 2023 – PADTEC HOLDING SA (B3: PDTC3) (“Company” or “Padtec”) informs its shareholders and the market in general that it is launching a DWDM solution aimed at meeting the main demands of regional providers related to the evolution of their networks: high performance, availability and flexibility to expand quickly, at a more affordable cost.

The new product is a disaggregated dual transponder (or standalone), with SDN management (Software Defined Network), which offers high data transmission capacity – up to 400 Gb/s per optical channel, or 800 Gb/s in total – in short and medium distances, with quick and simplified installation and low energy consumption, in a 1U high chassis.

With this launch, Padtec now offers the provider market an advanced alternative for the evolution of the capacity of its transport networks, with an investment compatible with its resources. “One of the product's technical innovations is the use of QSFP-DD pluggable modules in the OpenZR+ standard, a trend that reduces the cost per transmitted bit, with high energy efficiency, in coherent optical systems. In addition, it has functionalities that adapt the rates to the operating conditions of each network, which allows providers to start with 100 Gb/s channels and gradually expand capacity, reaching 400 Gb/s channels”, highlights Roberto Nakamura, Director of Technology at Padtec.

He adds that another important differential of the new product is the possibility of taking advantage of the infrastructure of switches and routers already installed, in order to increase the DWDM transmission rates without large investments. “It is a good option for providers that are starting to build their own transport networks”, he says.

Carlos Raimar, CEO and Director of Investor Relations at Padtec, points out that the development of the new solution is in line with the company's commitment to constantly invest in the evolution of its product line in line with market demands. “With a more affordable cost, the advantages of DWDM are within reach of regional network operators who need to meet their customers' ever-increasing demands for bandwidth and new services,” says the executive. “This launch reinforces our commitment to providing solutions that, in addition to being innovative and using state-of-the-art technology, support the evolution of our customers' businesses”, he concludes.

Developed and manufactured in Brazil, the new product can be financed through credit lines offered by Padtec for providers of different sizes. Among them, we highlight financing through BNDES, FIDC with the Sifra group, Finep (branch of investments in technology and innovation of the federal government), "vendor financing" with private banks and "forfait" operations for sales international.
