GlobeNet Upgrades Undersea Cable to Brazil

GlobeNet, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oi (formerly Brasil Telecom),
completed the upgrade of the 22,000 kilometer submarine cable system linking the United States with Latin America. In addition to the submarine sections, Alcatel-Lucent upgraded the landing points in Rio de Janeiro and Fortaleza (Brazil), Maiquet�a (Venezuela), St.David's (Bermuda), Boca Raton and Tuckerton, Fla. In Rio de Janeiro, the submarine network integrates with the terrestrial optical infrastructure of GlobeNet's parent company, Oi. Alcatel-Lucent also managed the installation, deployment and commissioning of the system.

This project, the second upgrade in approximately 18 months, enables GlobeNet to deliver more than 110 Gbps of capacity, enabling GlobeNet to expand its wholesale service offering to include broadband, carrier Ethernet, fixed and mobile IP-based and traditional voice services as well as applications such as hosting, video conferencing and international private line services.
