Gigared is a fully integrated telecommunications provider serving the Republic of Argentina. Services provisioned include broadband Internet, digital and analog cable television, telephony, co-location, hosting and point-to-point data transmission.
Gigared provisions domestic services in four major markets via a proprietary, fiber-rich hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network. The HFC network in each domestic market is interconnected via a 1,100 kilometer, proprietary fiber optic Long-Haul network. The integrated HFC and Long-Haul networks are controlled through a carrier-grade Data Center located in Buenos Aires, the communications nexus for Argentina. Gigared provisions international services and achieves critical network redundancy through interconnections at its Data Center, Long Haul network access points and HFC network Hubs.
The Gigared network is unique to the market in terms of design, robustness, control and scalability. Fiber-rich, end-to-end connectivity from the subscriber premise to major ILEC, CLEC and Internet interconnection points insures reliability and exceptional service quality.
With over 100 years of combined telecommunications experience, Gigared's owner-managers are committed to providing the best value-to-cost proposition in market.
In 1994, the co-founders of Gigared comprised the management of Tescorp, Inc., a NASDAQ-traded company domiciled in the US. Tescorp was among the first international companies to enter the Argentine telecommunications industry; and it executed a roll-up of cable television properties located primarily in the Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Cordillera regions of the country. More than ten acquisitions were consummated. Management implemented a disciplined plan of consolidating markets, clusterring operations into efficient units and standardizing policies and procedures. These efforts significantly improved operating performance, and Tescorp was acquired via public tender offer in 1998.
Shortly after the sale of Tescorp, management founded Gigared for the purpose of providing a high quality telecommunications alternative to entrenched Argentine oligopolies. Robust HFC networks were constructed to serve four Provincial Capitals: Santa Fe, Parana, Resistencia and Corrientes. These individual markets were interconnected into Buenos Aires, the telecommunications nexus of Argentina, via a 1,100 kilometer fiber-optic Long Haul network; and central control was established in a carrier-grade, stand-alone Network Operating Center/Data Center located in Buenos Aires. Gigared was among the first in Argentina to provision the "triple play" of telecommunications services: cable television, broadband Internet and telephony.
Gigared also provisions carrier-grade telecommunications services to other cities on its Long Haul network path including Rosario, the third largest city in Argentina. Additionally, Gigared holds licenses to build HFC network in Buenos Aires, Posadas and several cities passed by the Long Haul network in the industrial heartland of Argentina between Buenos Aires and Rosario.
