Telxius is a partner and landing party of MAREA

Telxius, Microsoft and Facebook have partnered together to build MAREA, the transatlantic submarine cable with the highest capacity to date. The cable, which is 6,000 km long and can transport 160 terabytes per second, joins Sopelana (Spain) and Virginia (US) and is operated by Telxius.

One of MAREA’s main characteristics is its location, much farther south than other transatlantic cables, thus making it a very valuable asset for diversifying connectivity through the Atlantic. In addition, its landing stations in both Sopelana (Spain) and Virginia (US) are two key connectivity points with the United States, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. MAREA will greatly contribute to meet the growing data demand.

Therefore, MAREA, with its exclusive layout, will be able to transport large amounts of traffic, as well as to deal with other market needs such as virtual reality, IoT, or artificial intelligence.

“More and more content is being consumed, which requires a great deal of bandwidth, which is why the whole world needs to be connected to an infrastructure capable of transporting large volumes of data.
Rafael Arranz, COO of Telxius
