SAPL Turnkey Network Development Agreement for Ocean Specialists

Ocean Networks and Ocean Specialists have entered into an agreement for the further development and implementation of the South America Pacific Link (SAPL) submarine cable network.

The SAPL Network is being developed in two phases, with Phase-1 connecting Valparaiso (Chile), Manta (Ecuador), Balboa (Panama) and Jacksonville (Florida), and Phase-2 extending the network to Hawaii, where it will interconnect with Asia and Pacific networks, creating a much-needed direct connection between those key traffic points and the west coasts of Central and South America.

OSI will provide full turnkey network development services to Ocean Networks, beginning from the current financing stage and continuing through implementation to network operations.

“Since commencing the SAPL project, Ocean Networks has successfully addressed critical components such as future technology, service capabilities and key supplier relations to bring the best alternatives to our project. OSI, with their history of successfully developing global subsea networks, bring the technical and management capabilities needed for full implementation,” said Scott Schwertfager, CEO of Ocean Networks.
