The increased adoption of cloud-based services and data-intensive applications such as video streaming, online gaming, and content services — along with innovations in 5G, AI, and machine learning — are rapidly driving the need for faster speeds and higher-capacity bandwidth. Telxius has partnered with technology providers, Ciena (NYSE: CIEN) and Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), to provide 400Gb/s Ethernet service on its transatlantic and the LATAM-USA routes to help meet this global demand.
Ciena partners with highly innovative providers, like Telxius, to address the global connectivity needs of content providers, global enterprises, and third-party operators. Ciena’s GeoMesh Extreme submarine networking solution will leverage WaveLogic 5 Extreme coherent optics to offer new levels of capacity and fiber efficiencies on Telxius’ submarine cable routes – two of the highest-capacity and lowest-latency transatlantic submarine cable routes in the world.
Infinera’s new 800G ICE6 solution is the ideal fit for network operators like Telxius looking to flexibly and cost-effectively scale their networks to meet the rapid growth of bandwidth and deliver efficient support for 400G Ethernet services. Infinera delivers the flexibility, capacity, and reach to help ensure that subsea networks continue to stay ahead of bandwidth needs.
“Telxius’ network is the first to have a 400Gb/s Ethernet interface available in both the transatlantic and the LATAM-USA routes, including Marea, Dunant, Brusa, Junior, Tannat and Mistral subsea cables,” stated Guillermo Cañete, VP Network Planning Telxius. “The collaboration with top-tier providers such as Infinera and Ciena opens up possibilities for Telxius to offer enhanced ethernet services to customers that seamlessly support the rapid bandwidth demands of today’s data-intensive cloud and network applications.”
MAREA connects the Virginia Beach Telxius CLS Campus in the U.S. to Sopelana, Spain, and on to the Derio Communications Hub, which in turn leverages the power of MAREA by connecting to major hubs across Europe. Dunant provides additional network diversity across the Atlantic, connecting further north to France from the Virginia Beach CLS. From the U.S., the Brusa subsea cable system connects Virginia Beach to Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, and San Juan, extending to the Tannat and Junior subsea cables for further connectivity across Latin America, offering the most modern and diverse route from the US to Brazil and Argentina. Together with Mistral, connecting the Pacific coast of Latin America, these next-generation submarine cables create an ultra-high-capacity network that supports the rapid increase in data usage for global cloud, content, and enterprise clients between the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and beyond.
