New Subsea Cable Company Making a Splash in the Caribbean

Caribbean countries are experiencing a surge in demand for advanced telecommunications services, including access to international and regional telecom operators, regional network and Over-The-Top (OTT) content providers. Large enterprises in the region, such as financial services and oil & gas companies, are also seeking more reliable and lower latency connectivity. Caribbean bandwidth demand is strong, and high growth is forecast to continue due to ongoing regional investment in fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure. In fact, 10-year growth is predicted to reach a minimum of 50 times existing capacity because of the increased demand of social media, smart phones, HD cable TV, and Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB). Investment in terrestrial backhaul and domestic network capacity has also led to an increase in aggregate demand for off-island capacity.

There is No Substitute for Optical Transport

In today’s fast-paced digital environment, high-volume data and applications must flow seamlessly and securely between global financial markets, media hubs, data centers and service provider networks. Optical transport — with its highly scalable bandwidth and low latency connectivity — is a critical enabling element.

Businesses can obtain optical transport services by working with companies like GTT Communications, Inc., a leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients. GTT recently launched its new Optical Transport service, leveraging the company’s subsea and terrestrial fiber-optic network that is optimized for latency performance.
