New alliance boosts Latin American connections with North America

Leading global connectivity providers Arelion and Telxius say they are collaborating to expand connectivity to North and Latin America.

Together, Arelion and Telxius are making a significant investment in the Florida Peninsula to connect Latin American customers to North America through submarine and terrestrial systems.

They aim to provide fully diverse, multi-terabit connectivity into Telxius’ landing stations in Boca Raton and Jacksonville, Florida. This fibre network expansion establishes Arelion points-of-presence (PoPs) at each Telxius landing station. For Telxius, it empowers customers with resilient Tier-1 optical transport and high-speed access to Arelion’s North American network. 

The collaboration benefits both Arelion and Telxius’ customers in North America and Latin America with enhanced access to the companies’ global internet backbones. Customers also benefit from Telxius' portfolio of submarine and terrestrial backhauls, and Arelion’s resilient terrestrial connectivity services, including high-capacity wavelengths for service providers, content providers and enterprises.

Arelion’s PoPs enable resilient 400G Wavelengths services over open line systems supporting the latest coherent technology, seamlessly connecting internet carriers and content providers to Arelion’s network in the United States.

This network expansion complements Arelion’s existing presence at Telxius’ Virginia Beach landing station, the landing point for three next-generation subsea systems connecting to Latin America and Europe: Brusa, Marea and Dunant.

Telxius’ Boca Raton landing station is the terminal point for Telxius’ South America-1 (SAm-1) and upcoming Tikal submarine cable system, while Telxius’ Jacksonville landing station connects to the Pacific Caribbean Cable System (PCCS). Both landing stations provide diverse, high-capacity connectivity to the United States from Panama, South America and the Caribbean.

“Arelion’s new PoPs at Telxius’ landing stations along the Florida Peninsula will provide Latin American markets with high-capacity gateway access to the North American connectivity ecosystem,” says Edison De Leon, Regional Director Latam & Caribbean at Arelion.

Arelion and Telxius say their partnership establishes key interconnection points for Latin American companies requiring access to major cloud regions, content applications and network infrastructure supporting artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) applications in North America.
