Angola Cables Picks Ciena for Monet Submarine Cable
Angola Cables has selected Ciena’s GeoMesh and Blue Planet solutions to support its new service launch on the MONET subsea cable.
This 10,556 km route will provide more than 25 Tb/s of traffic on Angola Cables’ network between the U.S. and Latin America’s business hub of São Paulo, Brazil.
Angola Cables’ wholesale customers can utilize this additional connectivity to support surging bandwidth demands driven by on-demand applications such as over-the-top (OTT) video and cloud computing.
“The demand for international connectivity continues to grow, and so does the need for our customers to easily manage and allocate data to end-users. With Ciena’s advanced submarine and software innovations, we improve our go-to-market strategy with best-of-breed technology so that we can provide greater connectivity for our customers. With this, Angola Cables adds a critical piece in our global coverage network, positioning ourselves as global provider for capacity related services,”– António Nunes, CEO, Angola Cables.
“Hosting major sporting events like the Olympics and World Cup helped reinforced Brazil as a global network connectivity hub that plays a key role in bridging the gap between nations. The arrival of new submarine cables like MONET is an important next step, and helps position the country to support the ongoing transition to an on-demand society,”– Ian Clarke, vice president, Global Submarine Systems, Ciena.
