The Carnival Submarine Network-1 (CSN-1) is a 4,500 km submarine cable connecting Ecuador, Panama, Colombia and the Florida West coast in the USA, plus potentially other countries within Central and South America.
CSN-1 is developed by Telconet, the Ecuador-based infrastructure and telecom operator.
Telconet selects Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) to construct CSN-1, with supply contract in force (CIF) in March 2022.
CSN-1 will utilize ASN’s field proven, state of the art, high fiber count, SDM submarine cable technology. The cable will adhere to the industry’s Open Cable architecture, further supporting its goal to be carrier neutral and provide open access in each of the CSN-1 landing stations.
