GlobeNet has announced that it has completed the marine survey for its new subsea cable to Argentina, Malbec.

The 2,500km cable system will connect the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires, Argentina – with a future branching unit to reach Porto Alegre, Brazil.

“Laying a subsea cable is a process that requires due diligence, meticulous planning and detail-oriented execution,” said Eduardo Falzoni (pictured), CEO of GlobeNet. “The completion of the marine survey in due time is a major milestone and allows us to confirm the ready for service date for the first half of 2020.”

The Malbec project is being developed in collaboration with Facebook and brings Argentina fully onto the GlobeNet network, delivering seamless connectivity between the Southern Cone of South America and the US. In addition, it utilises the latest enhancements in fibre-optic technology, such as Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM), to deliver double the current international capacity to Argentina.As a result, the new infrastructure will allow much greater high-speed access to social media content, streaming and cloud services throughout the region.
