Highlights / Key Facts:
Spainand Portugalare important gateways to Braziland the rest of South Americafor many European markets. As the capital of Portugal, Lisbonis at the center of industry, government and commerce. It represents an important international connectivity hub, with subsea cables connecting the Iberian Peninsulafrom Lisbonto Africaand South America. Spainis also an essential hub on the global connectivity map due to its physical location between Africa, Mediterranean Europe and Northern Europe, and its strong cultural connection to Latin America. 5G deployments, the ongoing tech boom and growth in the use of data, telecom subscriptions and internet connections between the two continents are increasing bandwidth capacity requirements.
- The subsea cable momentum on Platform Equinix® has accelerated worldwide as digital transformation has increased globally.
Equinix'sfootprint of more than 230 IBX data centers in 65 global markets across 27 countries provides the metro edge points of presence (PoPs) required to deliver low-latency interconnection for transporting increasing volumes of internet traffic. At Equinix, subsea cable owners/operators can deploy cable landing stations that open gateways between continents and interconnect businesses around the world.
- According to the fifth annual Equinix Global Interconnection Index (GXI Vol. 5), overall interconnection bandwidth, the measure of private connectivity for the transfer of data between organizations, is forecast to reach 21,485+ terabits per second (Tbps), or 85 zettabytes, per year by 2024, representing a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 44%. This growth is aligned with the increased demand for the digital infrastructure needed to bring more businesses online, facilitate electronic integration with partners and supply chains, and reach more people in distributed hybrid work environments.

"Offering one-hop connections between
Latin Americaand Europewith a 60ms latency is a game changer from a transatlantic latency perspective. During these last months, EllaLink continued working directly with Equinixin order to secure carrier-neutral connections from our PoP locations in Equinix'sdata centers and we are now enabling our customers to directly access the rich ecosystems of networks, clouds, and financial and IT service providers that Equinixhosts."

"BSO delivers low-latency, high- performance, highly available, private cloud infrastructure to customers in the capital markets sector. Our work to connect those in emerging markets with other trading networks around the globe has garnered significant results for the regions, even at this early stage. Working with
Equinixand EllaLink, we feel we are well-placed to ensure that firms who want to access the Brazilian market have everything they need." Jim Poole, Vice President, Business Development, Equinix
"More data is being produced and processed today than ever before—and almost every byte of data that moves over the internet touches a subsea cable. As a result, organizations require access to high-capacity, low-latency networks capable of connecting them to data centers across oceans with the highest levels of reliability. This is where
Equinixplays a critical role and offers a huge advantage to customers. Any user of a subsea cable network that lands inside one of our global data center termination points has instant, low-latency access to a host of industry ecosystems inside Equinix."
