América Móvil and Telxius announced the deployment of a new ultrahigh capacity undersea cable in the Pacific coast of Latin America.
Americas This will be the first undersea cable since 2001
The cable will have an initial estimated capacity of 108 Tbps combined with the lowest latency between Guatemala and Chile.
As a result, the 7,300 km cable will serve the entire Pacific coast of South America with the highest levels of service, reliability and security.
The cable has been designed to achieve significant efficiencies deriving from infrastructure sharing.
The five landing stations are already in place and undersea prospection works are currently under way. ■
