Telmex Deploys the First High Density and Gigabit Wi-Fi Network in Mexico Jointly with Cisco

In order to deploy a High Density and Gigabit Wi-Fi Network in the Auditorio Nacional, Telmex allied Cisco and selected carrier-grade universal Wi-Fi technology. The Auditorio Nacional is one of the main entertainment centers in the country, and can host over 10,000 people, who will now be able to connect their mobile devices to a high speed mobile network. The network will be managed under Cisco Prime Infrastructure, which simplifies the management of wireless and wired networks. This is the One Management solution for wireless and wired lifecycle management, providing application visibility at all times to all visitants connected to the network. Thus, the attendees of Auditorio Nacional will be able to navigate using an average of 10 Mbs up and down bandwidth, simultaneously, anywhere in the venue, either outside or inside the auditorium. Cisco solutions deployed include: Cisco High Density Experience (HDX) is a suite of solutions combining a feature set designed specifically to alleviate the introduction of more clients, more access points, bandwidth-hungry applications and high density network strain while providing an unparalleled user experience. It is available in the Aironet 2700 Series access points deployed at Auditorio Nacional. Aironet 3700 series access point is designed for high-density network environments that utilize mission-critical, high-performance applications. The industry's first wireless access point with integrated 802.11ac Wave 1 radio. Cisco CleanAir 3.0 creates a spectrum-aware, self healing and self optimizing wireless network that mitigates the impact of wireless interference and offers performance protection for 802.11 and 802.11 ac networks. Cisco ClientLink 3.0 focuses on mixed-client networks optimizing overall network capacity by helping ensure that 802.11 and 802.11 a.c clients operate in the best possible rates, especially when they are near cell boundaries. Thus increases the overall capacity of the system, which means more efficient use of spectrum resources. A vital part of the infrastructure is the set of external antennas working with the access points, that are specifically designed to boost and focus the Wi-Fi signal toward the seating areas, reducing interference and increasing the network capacity for the best user experience.

IFT Fines Telmex and Dish for Failing to Officially Announce a Commercial Agreement They Struck

Mexico's telecom regulator IFT has already fined Telmex and Dish for failing to officially announce a commercial agreement they struck, but the tie-up might now need reexamining under new telecom laws. The Telmex-Dish deal was reached in 2008. The investigation into the validity of the agreement was launched by the now-defunct antitrust commission Cofeco, and inherited by IFT in October 2013. Constitutional reforms to the telecom sector approved in 2013, however, reshaped competition laws, potentially making the Telmex-Dish tie-up illegal under the new rules. Telmex was declared a preponderant player in the telecom market, and was subject to several limitations including preventing Telmex from offering pay TV services. IFT could conclude, then, that Telmex's business deal with Dish could go against this law. The Telmex-Dish deal had already been put into question in July, but Dish shrugged them off by assuring that its business with Telmex was limited to printing a bill for shared services. Telmex has more than the reform against its quest to offer pay TV services, something it has been actively pursuing for years. The company is prevented from entering the pay TV market because of a clause in its concession contract despite IFT saying that it might be allowed to enter the market as early as 2015. Both Telmex and Dish have disputed the IFT-imposed fines, with Telmex saying it would fight it using 'all available legal avenues'. IFT imposed a MXN 43 million (USD 2.93 million) fine on Dish and a MXN 14.3 million fine on Telmex.
