Carriers and Internet Service Providers With High Performance
BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/13 --  GlobeNet, an
international wholesale provider of submarine capacity, and a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Brazilian full-service telecoms provider
-- Oi, celebrates 10 years of delivering world-class, high
performance International data communication services to global
carriers and service providers. As an in-region expert throughout the
Americas including managing and operating networks reaching Brazil,
Bermuda, Colombia, the United States, and Venezuela, GlobeNet offers
high capacity transport and IP services through its ring-protected
and diverse subsea and terrestrial networks. GlobeNet's network
connectivity between cable landing stations and terrestrial
International points of presence (iPoPs) utilize the latest in Dense
Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM), SDH and Carrier Ethernet
technologies. This advanced combination provides added resilience and
ease of service provisioning, making GlobeNet the go-to provider in
the markets it serves.  
GlobeNet's expansive 22,500 kilometer network started as a subsea
cable system built by 360 Networks and completed in 2002. The network
was acquired by Brasil Telecom on June 10th, 2003 and became the
first network in its class in the Atlantic region to operate cash
flow and EBITDA positive by the end of 2004. Brazil's two largest
national carriers -- Telemar and Brasil Telecom -- merged in 2009 to
form Oi S.A., further adding terrestrial network capillarity,
regional expertise, expanded footprints and telecom capabilities
throughout Brazil. With a long history of deploying major upgrades to
ensure optimum capacity for its customers, GlobeNet launched a series
of major network expansions and technology adoption projects over
this past decade.  
In 2012, GlobeNet announced the extension of its award-winning subsea
network to Colombia. The new express route addresses increased demand
for high capacity, while also providing the lowest latency route from
Colombia to Brazil. The new route also complements GlobeNet's
existing ring-protected International capacity service to Colombia,
and will be fully operational in Q4 2013. 
To keep up with explosive demand for high-speed broadband service
requirements, in 2013 the company also completed the replacement of
its Segment 5 subsea cable linking Bermuda to the United States. This
new subsea cable segment has a design capacity of 30 Tb/s. GlobeNet's
total network lit capacity today is over 1.2 Tb/s on all network
