From Mexico to the southern tip of Argentina, Latin America is amid a vibrant digital transformation. In both the public and private sectors, data-intensive workloads are on the rise causing organizations to demand improved international connectivity options and better access to cloud-based services.

As we know, submarine cables are a key pillar upon which all these new solutions and services are run. It should come as no surprise then that Latin America is currently seeing a surge in investment in new subsea infrastructure. In fact, as it stands right now, the region has become a global leader in submarine cable construction with routes connecting it to North America, Africa and beyond.

For its part, GlobeNet, under the leadership of its CEO Eduardo Falzoni, is at the forefront of bringing new, state-of-the-art infrastructure into Latin America. Currently, the company is heavily invested in its project to lay a new, 2,500 km submarine cable that will link the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital. Co-owned by Facebook, the cable, named MALBEC, will deliver double the current international capacity to Argentina and will be ready for service in the first half of 2020.

In this context, Mr. Falzoni is headed to Capacity LATAM 2019 next week, where he will join the event’s keynote panel on Tuesday, March 12 at 9:50 am. Entitled Evaluating the Upswing in Submarine Cable Construction Across the Region and Assessing Revenue Growth Opportunities, Capacity Media’s Natalie Bannerman will invite Mr. Falzoni and the other panelists to provide their insight into trends affecting the valuation of submarine cable infrastructure. Key questions the executives will explore include:

  • What is the strategy to develop a competitive business model?
  • Are network operators exploring alternative business models?
  • What current and innovative opportunities exist to monetize submarine cable infrastructure?

With over twenty years of experience in the international telecommunications industry, Mr. Falzoni brings a deep understanding of network operator business models to the panel. As CEO of GlobeNet, he has led multiple teams successfully in undertaking strategic marketing, sales, planning, channel management and business development initiatives. Overall, the panel promises to be engaging for attendees, providing a barometer by which to gauge the state of the industry going forward through the rest of 2019.
