Caribbean Express (CX) is a new build submarine cable system that is being developed by Ocean Networks.
The Caribbean Express (CX) cable system will connect Points of Presence between West Palm Beach (Florida) and Balboa (Panama) with branch connections to Mexico and Columbia. In addition, the CX cable system will have future connectivity to Cuba, Grand Cayman, Guatemala, Jamaica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
The CX system will utilize the latest Space Division Multiplexing (SDM) technology and have 18 fiber pairs.
This strategic system will fill a requirement for the emerging markets of Central America by providing low latency connectivity to the NAP of Americas in Miami (Florida) and the Jacksonville (Florida) NAP. The CX cable system will be the only system in the Caribbean region that can offer full fiber pairs to the market.
The CX cable system is scheduled ready for service in Q1 2024.
