The Curie submarine cable system is a four-fibre-pair and 10,000km cable connecting Los Angeles, California, and Valparaiso, Chile, with a branching unit for future connectivity to Panama.
Named after physicist and chemist Marie Curie, the Curie cable system will make Google the first major non-telecom company to build a private intercontinental cable. Google claims it will be the first new cable to land in Chile in almost 20 years, and will become the largest single data pipe connecting the country.
The Curie cable system is supplied by TE SubCom. The Curie cable system is set to go live in 2019.
