Sparkle announces the activation of new spectrum capacity on the Monet submarine cable system that connects Brazil to the United States. With this addition, Sparkle enhances its continental backbone, offering five diversified routes between North and South America.
Monet is a new-generation cable spanning 10,556 km, running from Boca Raton in Florida to Fortaleza and Sao Paulo in Brazil. With this new cable, Sparkle increases the overall redundancy of its backbone, which now provides five diversified routes between North and South America, owing to its extensive submarine infrastructure that includes three submarine “digital highways”: Monet and Seabras-1 in the Atlantic Ocean and Curie in the Pacific Ocean.
By adding Monet to its Atlantic routes, Sparkle further enhances its Tier-1 Seabone global IP transit service and its capacity solutions, meeting the huge data demand driven by new technologies, media platforms and cloud-based services that require omnipresent Internet connectivity.
With Monet, Sparkle continues the expansion of its American optic fibre network, which now features 56 Points of Presence across the U.S., Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Panama, Peru and Venezuela, a widespread presence in Brazil and a new open and neutral landing and connectivity hub in Panama.
