América Móvil Builds 100G Submarine Cable with ALU


América Móvil has selected Alcatel-Lucent to build a 17,500-km submarine cable linking the Americas.

The AMX-1 System will connect seven countries with eleven landing points: Miami and Jacksonville (United States), Barranquilla and Cartagena (Colombia), Fortaleza, Salvador & Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic), Cancun (Mexico), San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Puerto Barrios (Guatemala). The system is optimized for 100G wavelengths and an ultimate carrying capacity of 50 Tbps. Construction is underway and activation is expected in late 2013.

Alcatel-Lucent is supplying OALC-4 cable optimized with coherent submarine fiber (CSF), repeaters, branching units and the 1620 Light Manager (LM) submarine line terminal equipped with Advanced Coherent technology.

América Móvil and its affiliates currently serve 256 million wireless subscribers and 62 million fixed lines.
