SUNRISE, Fla., Nov. 14, 2022 - Gold Data, a leading, multinational, and award-winning technology company, is proud to announce that it is building the first cable system in the Gulf of Mexico which will connect Miami in Florida with strategic points in Mexico: Mexico City, Cancun, and Queretaro.

This US$150 million investment is the third and final phase of Gold Data's Mexico network expansion. It will complement the company's low-latency underground network which already interconnects the most important Data Centers in the country.

Gold Data 1 will be the first cable to land in Mexico in 22 years. This new US-Mexico digital highway will offer the bandwidth capacity and the quality of services required by the market and will play a key part in empowering the fast-growing Data demand in Mexico.

The 10-fiber pair cable system will offer more than 250 TBPS of capacity and will be built in partnership with the leading players in the submarine cable market: Orange for the technical design and laying the cable working together with Orange Marine cable ship and Alcatel Submarine Networks; also Ciena for providing the GeoMesh Extreme SLTE and transport technology. Additionally, both Orange have signed agreements to acquire fiber pairs in Gold Data 1's system.

"Our state-of-the-art topology network is revolutionizing Mexico's connectivity by reducing latency by up to 35%, something that is key for enterprises and content providers which are hungry for reliable, low latency, high quality connectivity. In addition, the expansion of this network to the US will be a game changer for Mexico's fast-growing innovators looking for a fresh alternative to Silicon Valley," says Renato Tradardi, CEO of Gold Data.

Gold Data is rapidly becoming the partner of choice of all mission-critical connectivity requirements, may it be data or video, within Mexico and the LATAM region as a whole.
