TE SubCom Completes Monet Cable Shore Landing in U.S.

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has completed the U.S. shore landing for the Monet Submarine Cable, a 10,556 km cable that will connect Boca Raton, Florida to Fortaleza and Praia Grande, Brazil.

The 100G-capable cable system, owned jointly by Algar Telecom, Angola Cables, ANTEL and Google, will provide a low latency route from Brazil to North America with a minimum bandwidth of 60 Tbps.

The Boca Raton landing is the third of three shore landings installed by TE SubCom for the Monet Cable. Shore landings were completed earlier this year in Fortaleza and Praia Grande, Brazil, the company said.

“With our system supply partners at TE SubCom, we’ve seen tremendous progress on Monet in the past several months, making the U.S. shore landing a very exciting milestone for all involved with the project,” said Javier Emicuri, ANTEL’s CEO and chairman of Monet’s executive committee.

“The design and deployment of a network as large and advanced as Monet is a very complex venture and each stage is carefully considered against a number of factors,” said Chris Carobene, VP Marine Services, TE SubCom. “One of those considerations is the shore landing technique and its potential environmental footprint on the landing site. In the case of Monet, we used a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technique that’s designed to avoid sensitive beach crossings and eliminate open trenching. We are grateful to the Monet project leads for trusting in TE SubCom’s expertise as we move ahead with these critical implementation processes.”
