Vianet Telecom

As a Telecom operator and Provider of High Speed Internet, Voice and Fiber Optic TV Services, Cloud Solutions, Perimeter Security Systems and Technology for Smart Residential Communities, Vianet has a network covering more than 18 cities in the interior of São Paulo State, in addition to interconnection with several national and international carriers, allowing connectivity with any location in the Brazilian territory.

Business challenge

Due to its accelerated growth, Vianet Telecom started having issues with its internal infrastructure, and so it started looking for a data center to migrate its environment. The key requirement is that it should focus on the company’s core business: telecom solutions. Another challenge in this process was to migrate the entire operation without any downtime.


In order to ensure a successful migration, the solution was designed in partnership. At first, integrating the data center with different fiber routes to the old customer site, before migrating the environment to the data center.

The stability allowed us the opportunity to open up new possibilities, including with another unique advantage from Ascenty: our AICX service (Ascenty Internet Connectivity Exchange) for low-cost connectivity to service providers.


After joining forces with Ascenty, Vianet has enjoyed very high availability in its network core and ease of connection, in addition to cost savings with IP traffic for large content providers.


“We opted for Ascenty because our planning to expand and increase the quality of our services included choosing a data center with the highest reliability, quality and security for installing our backbone equipment and the edge of our connectivity network that supports and feeds the internet, TV, telephone and other connectivity and cloud services we offer. We found Ascenty to be the ideal partner, in that it not only met, but exceeded all technical and contingency requirements defined in our scope.

And we couldn’t be any happier with our choice. We consider it to be one of the most relevant strategic decisions when it comes to improving our network. We were able to raise the quality and reliability of our services through our partnership with Ascenty, and it’s been all compliments on their service so far. The quality of their infrastructure and the professionals who work there are major differentiators. It’s for all the reasons that we have already recommended Ascenty for companies looking for a high-level partner who will help them grow, while ensuring that their services meet the highest standards.”
