Sparkle announces Chile cable enhancement

Recent announcements from Italian service provider and global operator Sparkle include a Pacific cable enhancement and a new point of presence in Morocco.

Sparkle this week announced the enhancement of its American backbone boosting its Pacific routes with a new fibre pair on the Curie submarine cable system connecting Chile to the US.

The Google-owned subsea cable Curie is the first direct new generation US-Chile cable connecting Los Angeles to Valparaiso.

Sparkle’s new fibre pair on Curie will be fully integrated with Sparkle’s global backbone, increasing redundancy and offering a fourth diversified route to directly connect South and North America, complementing its 2017 addition of the Seabras-1 cable in the Atlantic.

Sparkle says that thanks to these new highways, Curie in the Pacific and Seabras-1 in the Atlantic, it offers the best performance in terms of latency and robustness through its pillar connectivity service City2City and its global Tier-1 IP transit service Seabone.

This announcement follows the recent news that Sparkle has opened a new point of presence (PoP) in Casablanca, Morocco. Located at Orange Maroc open data centre, Sparkle’s PoP will provide corporate communication services to multinational enterprises aiming to expand their business in Morocco.

With this new opening, says the company, it offers Italian and European multinationals Ethernet and virtual private IP-VPN networks to connect their headquarters with their branches in Morocco and thus enable intracompany communication.
