Telecom Argentina, Grupo Werthein and Seaborn Networks have revealed the Argentinian landing point of ARBR submarine cable system connecting Argentina and Brazil.

The ARBR will be landing in Telecom Argentina’s cable landing station in Las Toninas, Argentina.

In addition, Telecom Argentina shall provide ARBR with dark fiber on a backhaul route between Las Toninas and Buenos Aires, as well as point of presence (POP) space in Buenos Aires.

ARBR is a new fiber optic submarine cable system developed by Seaborn and co-owned by its Seabras Group together with The Werthein Group.

ARBR’s Brazil landing will be in Seaborn’s existing Seabras-1 cable landing station in Praia Grande, Brazil, thereby enabling direct onward connectivity to New York on the fully operational Seabras-1.

The landing station, backhaul and POP to be provided by Telecom Argentina are perfect complements to our ARBR and Seabras-1 systems, enabling customers on ARBR to benefit from the most modern and direct route between Buenos Aires and New York,” said Larry Schwartz, chairman & CEO of Seaborn Networks.

“ARBR represents an ideal combination of local ownership with an independent operator to open up Argentina’s telecommunications market to the world,” said Dario Werthein of Grupo Werthein.

Construction of the ARBR cable is scheduled to start in 2018 and to be completed in 2019.
