KEYNOTE PANEL: EVALUATING THE UPSWING IN SUBMARINE CABLE CONSTRUCTION ACROSS THE REGION AND ASSESSING REVENUE GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES
The ever- growing demand for bandwidth in Latin America, has boosted a major increase of submarine cables to connect the region and satisfy the increasing international bandwidth demand. This new surge in investment in new submarine cables has helped improve latency and created new and alternative routes. This boom in submarine cables has positioned Latin America as a leader in submarine cable construction globally. With so many new cables, and many routes connecting South America with North America and Africa, how will this affect transit price? What is the strategy to develop a competitive business model? Are operators exploring alternative business models? This panel will assess growth opportunities and alternative business models to monetise submarine cables infrastructure.

PROJECT UPDATE: MAXIMISING ON NEW PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES: EXPLORING THE BRUSA CABLE SYSTEM
It is evident that the explosion of data traffic demand across Latin America is driving the growth of submarine cable construction. Forging alliances with key content players and data centres, can advance the potential use of capacity of new submarine cables. Furthermore, as a result of the increase in data traffic demand there is a need to connect closer to database hubs. Therefore, to grow it is important to capitalise on this trend. In this context, the BRUSA cable system is one of the most relevant routes for Latin America, it covers the route from Virginia Beach to Rio de Janeiro. This new route provides high capacity connections to data centres. This session will provide project highlights on key collaborations and key updates on the BRUSA cable system.
