EllaLink is an optical submarine cable that will link EUROPE, Portugal (SINES) to LATAM, Brazil (Fortaleza) to address the increasing demand for international capacity. The cable is a 3-fiber-pair cable linking Southern Europe (Sines – Lisbon – Madrid) to LATAM (Fortaleza – Sao Paulo). Three intermediate branches are also being planned to land in Cabo Verde, the Canary Islands and Madeira. The main section of the cable traveling from Sines to Fortaleza is approximately 5900 km.
Today, the international capacity connecting Latin America to North America is 1,000 times that connecting it to Europe. However, independent research studies show that at present Europe is where the largest volumes of traffic are exchanged at the lowest costs. EllaLink’s key objective is to provide a competitive, general purpose international connection, however its connectivity extends well beyond delivering a single connection to address the following needs in Latin America and Europe
EulaLink’s mission is to deploy and operate a next-generation submarine cable system with direct fiber routes, interconnecting LATAM to EUROPE. Thereby providing low latency and a solid foundation upon which carriers, operators & OTT´s can develop competitive offerings and ultimately contribute to enhance connectivity for its customers and the advancement of telecommunications services in the regions. EulaLink´s business model is pioneered and committed to base its services as a neutral & independent cable system.
