Strong Infrastructure for Data Dissemination

GlobeNet COO Discusses the Importance of Strong Telecom Infrastructure to Address the Ever-Increasing Demand for Bandwidth

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 24, 2014) - GlobeNet, an International wholesale provider of Latin American data network services, announces its new feature in a 21st Century Television segment which studies the importance of carriers implementing strong telecommunications infrastructure to meet increasing global bandwidth demands. Even though the technology associated with communications continues to improve, the basic telecommunications infrastructure has to keep up in order to support projected demand. Devices today use increasingly more bandwidth, and the applications, games, and similar uses will only grow more complex in the coming years. Erick Contag, COO of GlobeNet, sat down with 21st Century Television to discuss why he believes robust telecom infrastructure holds the key to solving this problem.

In the television segment, Mr. Contag, says that the better the infrastructure, the better it will be able to support the wide variety of smart devices being used today. He explains that GlobeNet runs a fiber optic submarine cable system that spans over 23,500 km connecting the United States with Brazil, Bermuda, Colombia, and Venezuela. This network enables and facilitates the flow of information between Global carriers and Content providers between the United States and Latin America, where local providers extend these to their end users. 21st Century Television's Vice President of Programming described his enthusiasm for this system by saying, "The importance of being able to easily and regularly access data and information cannot be overestimated. GlobeNet has become such a vital player in helping carriers accomplish this goal that we were excited to interview Mr. Contag and introduce the company to our viewers."
