GlobeNet has announced that its CEO, Eduardo Falzoni, will participate in the Capacity LATAM 2019 keynote panel titled “Evaluating the Upswing in Submarine Cable Construction Across the Region and Assessing Revenue Growth Opportunities.”
The event will take place on March 12th at 9:50 a.m. in São Paulo, Brazil.
The panel will discuss how growing demand for increased bandwidth and international connectivity in Latin America has led to a surge in investment in new submarine cables.
This boom has now positioned Latin America as a leader in global submarine cable construction. With so many new cables, and many routes connecting South America with North America and Africa, industry analysts continue to wonder how this will affect transit price.
This panel will consider the following questions:
- What is the strategy to develop a competitive business model?
- Are network operators exploring alternative business models?
- What current and innovative opportunities exist to monetize submarine cable infrastructure?
- Antonio Nunes, CEO, Angola Cables
- Eduardo Falzoni, CEO, GlobeNet
- Larry Schwartz, CEO, Seaborn Networks
- Norman Albi, CEO, AFR-IX Telecom
- Oscar Ngomo, General Director, GITGE
Falzoni’s participation in the conference comes at an opportune time, as GlobeNet is currently working to lay a new, 2,500 km submarine cable that will link the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital. Co-owned by Facebook, the MALBEC cable will deliver double the current international capacity to Argentina and will be ready for service in the first half of 2020.
