Monet submarine cable arrives in Florida US
02 November 2016 |
TE SubCom has completed the US arrival of its 10,556km Monet submarine connecting the city of Boca Raton, Florida, to key cities in Brazil.
The cable system is 100G-and has a minimum bandwidth of 60 Tbps. It is jointly owned by Brazilian internet service provider (ISP) Algar Telecom, Angola Cables (an Angolan telecom wholesaler), ANTEL (the Uruguayan telecom company) and Google.
Javier Emicuri, ANTEL’s CEO and Chairman, said: “We see an increase in local and regional deployment of LTE and FTTH (fibre-optic) networks, along with state of the art data
Chris Carobene, vice president marine services, TE SubCom said: “One of those considerations is the shore landing technique and its potential environmental footprint on the landing site. In the case of Monet, we used a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technique that is designed to avoid sensitive beach crossings and eliminate open trenching. We are grateful to the Monet project leads for trusting in TE SubCom’s expertise as we move ahead with these critical implementation processes.”
