GlobeNet announce Latam expansion plans

15 May 2017 | Jason McGee-Abe

GlobeNet, a wholesale provider of telecom infrastructure in the Americas, can announce that it is finalising the expansion of its colocation facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the construction of a new data centre facility in Barranquilla, Colombia, in order to meet growing demand for wholesale telco and IT services in the Latin American market.

Both highly secured facilities will maintain GlobeNet’s legacy of neutral interconnections for international and local operators as well as enable access to international destinations via its subsea cable system. With decades of operational expertise, these expansions will complement GlobeNet’s existing fibre-optic cable system, which spans more than 23,500km throughout the Americas. 

“We’re thrilled to announce that both projects will be completed in August 2017,” said Eduardo Falzoni, CEO at GlobeNet. “The addition of 200 sq m in our Rio de Janiero facility underscores our commitment to providing a neutral space to carriers, ISPs and content providers looking for interconnections and access to local and regional IXs. The 200 sq m upgradeable Tier III data centre in Barranquilla gives major integrators the opportunity to offer their sensitive customers a secure and resilient environment, diverse from Bogotá, to fulfil their robust IT solutions, security and disaster recovery needs. This facility, adjacent to our subsea cable landing station will support our full suite of IaaS services. In both cases, our customers will benefit from international access through GlobeNet’s subsea system. “
