Gold Data is building the first cable system in the Gulf of Mexico connecting Miami in Florida with strategic points in Mexico.
Gold Data, a leading multinational technology company, has announced that it is building the first cable system in the Gulf of Mexico which will connect Miami in Florida with strategic points in Mexico: Mexico City, Cancun and Queretaro.
This US$150 million investment is the third and final phase of Gold Data’s Mexico network expansion. It will complement the company’s low-latency underground network which already interconnects the most important data centers in the country.
Gold Data 1 will be the first cable to land in Mexico in 22 years. This US-Mexico digital highway will offer the bandwidth capacity and the quality of services required by the market and will play a key part in empowering the fast-growing data demand in Mexico.
The 10-fiber pair cable system will offer more than 250 TBPS of capacity and will be built in partnership with some of the leading players in the submarine cable market: Orange for the technical design and laying the cable, working together with Orange Marine cable ship and Alcatel Submarine Networks; also Ciena for providing the GeoMesh Extreme SLTE and transport technology.
Additionally, both Orange have signed agreements to acquire fiber pairs in Gold Data 1’s system
“Our state-of-the-art topology network is revolutionizing Mexico’s connectivity by reducing latency by up to 35%, something that is key for enterprises and content providers which are hungry for reliable, low latency, high-quality connectivity,” said Renato Tradardi, CEO of Gold Data.
“In addition, the expansion of this network to the US will be a game changer for Mexico’s fast-growing innovators looking for a fresh alternative to Silicon Valley.”Click below to share this article
