Level 3 Activats New Pacific Subsea Cable Route

Level 3 Communications announced the activation of a new subsea cable landing station, giving Colombia a Pacific Ocean route to connect to its international network.

The fiber optic undersea cable runs 300 kilometers to the seaport city of Buenaventura on Colombia’s Pacific coast, then 154 kilometers over land to the city of Cali, where it connects with Level 3’s national fiber optic system that provides access to the main Colombian markets.

At launch, Level 3’s undersea system has a total installed capacity of 8 terabits of which 400 gigabits are already available.

“This expanded undersea cable system connection represents Level 3’s commitment to meeting the increasing demand for network services in Latin America,” said Hector Alonso, regional president of Latin America for Level 3. “As part of Level 3’s South American Crossing (SAC) system, the cable connects the six major economies in Latin America providing customers a secure, reliable and redundant way to access our global footprint.”
