Padtec and Satelital team up to boost Latin America’s submarine networks

Padtec, a Brazilian multinational specialising in high-capacity connections, and Peruvian telecommunications company Satelital have announced a partnership to meet the growing demand for submarine networks in Latin America.

The strategic partnership is aimed at offering a turnkey solution for the construction and maintenance of submarine and sub-river networks in the region.

In particular it aims to respond to the exponential increase in data traffic on communication networks, all of which demand high data transmission capacity in the terrestrial, submarine and sub-river network infrastructures that are responsible for a large part of the world’s long-distance traffic.

The partnership combines the long experience, technical knowledge and assets of the two companies in the area of subsea systems, resulting in what is described as a unique value proposition for the Latin American market.

Padtec entered the submarine networks market at the beginning of its operations, more than 20 years ago. In 2014, it began offering to the market a turnkey solution for submarine networks that included its own optical amplifier.

In 2019 it sold its submarine systems division to an American multinational but continued to work with solutions for terrestrial plants for underwater and sub-river networks. Now it has teamed up with Satelital to once again offer a complete solution for this sector.

Satelital is recognised for its experience in implementing optical network projects, both sub-river, in the Amazon, and underwater, in the Pacific, in addition to having vast knowledge of the corporate and residential sectors.

Rocío Castilla, CEO of Grupo Satelital, points out that the alliance combines the experience of both companies in leading integrated optical network deployment projects. “This joint effort has the main objective of significantly improving connectivity in Brazil and throughout the Latin American region,” she adds.
