GlobeNet partners with Brazil’s National Institute of Telecommunications (INATEL)
Partnership supports research, innovation and entrepreneurship for Brazil’s growing telecommunications sector.
Inatel, Brazil’s National Institute of Telecommunications, has chosen GlobeNet for its high-speed, low latency network needs. Thanks to this new deal, the Brazilian educational center, which specializes in engineering and telecommunications education and research, is enhancing its ability to support innovation and entrepreneurship as it trains the country’s future generations of high-level professionals.
“Brazil is Latin America’s largest telecommunications market and is forecast to grow 20 percent by 2022,” says Joselito Bergamaschine, Regional Director with GlobeNet. “We’re thrilled to be supporting Inatel, an institution of vital importance in driving this projected development. Our GlobeNet team takes great pride in leveraging our portfolio of network, data center, IaaS and cloud services to give Inatel’s students the tools they need to influence the market with new digital communications and telecommunications systems.”
Founded in 1965 and spread across a 75 square kilometer campus, Inatel has become a center of excellence in graduate and post graduate engineering teaching and research, attracting talent from across Brazil. The non-profit institution’s mission is to build knowledge and promote scientific and technological modernisation that contributes to regional and national economic development. In addition to the college, Inatel also offers software and hardware laboratories equipped with modern infrastructure that developers can use to test and finalize ground-breaking solutions for emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing and machine learning.
With infrastructure close to Inatel’s campus in Santa Rita do Sapucai, GlobeNet will provide the ultra-low latency connectivity the academy requires. In fact, as the educational institution continues to grow its reputation, it will be in a prime position to leverage GlobeNet’s Rio de Janeiro data center to establish connections with partners.
“The partnership with GlobeNet will strengthen activities in the telecommunication area to research and teaching. Adding a real test environment to the existing laboratory infrastructure, the new feature will allow students and researchers work the aspects of long-distance networks, cloud services and virtualization of telecommunications networks”, says Marcelo Marques, Coordinator of the Inatel Telecommunication Engineering Course.
By collaborating with Inatel, GlobeNet continues to act as a responsible corporate citizen, providing vital support to initiatives with long-term benefits for regional economic development and social progress.
