Pan Am Cable Gets Capacity Injection

bbbbbbbbbbb2The ten-year-old Pan American Cable System, an undersea telecom pipe covering over 2,000 miles stretching from the Pacific coast of South America across into the southern region of the Caribbean, will undergo a significant upgrade before the end of the year.

Eleven telecom providers and sponsors, led by Japan’s NEC, are funding the venture which will boost capacity to multiple 10 Gbps wavelengths, meeting the same level of capacity provided in other parts of the world.  Current landings are in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Aruba and the US Virgin Islands. Growing demand in the Caribbean and Central and South America are contributing to the decision to boost the bandwidth on the pipes.
