Huawei Marine and Megacable have informed that work is underway on marine survey for the Topolobambo – La Paz project.

The submarine cable system should provide more stable and low-latency communication for La Paz, Mexico’s second largest tourist destination.

Located at the southern end of the Baja California Peninsula, La Paz’s communication connection to Mexico’s mainland currently is via the Peninsula’s terrestrial fiber system.

The new cable system will connect La Paz directly to Topolobambo on the mainland via an undersea cable across the Gulf of California. This solution promises to solve the problem of high of failure rates caused by aerial optical cables and should help customers develop new services in the region.

The Topolobambo – La Paz submarine cable system is a 250km unrepeatered submarine cable system with 24 fiber pairs. The system, which will have a capacity of 192Tb/s, is planned for delivery in Q2 2019.

“With the La Paz project Huawei Marine’s technology and service capabilities are once again recognized by customers in Latin America,” said Zhaofeng Chen, planning design director of Huawei Marine. “The terrain and environment in the Gulf and Peninsula region is complex and places high requirements on the design and construction of the submarine cable. Huawei Marine’s rich experience in working on difficult projects around the world will ensure the Topolobambo – La Paz project will be completed smoothly.”
