CONFLUENCE-1 is a new 16 fiber pairs and 2571km submarine cable from Miami to New York, as a diverse, more direct and more secure alternative to current linkages via existing terrestrial routes between Miami and New York.
The main trunk of the CONFLUENCE-1 connects Wall, New Jersey with Sunny Isles, Florida, with branching units to Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach and Jacksonville Beach.
CONFLUENCE-1 will interconnect a number of international cable systems, including the largest recently-installed and planned systems owned by the market’s major players. These systems, already comprising over 1000 Tbps in capacity, carry traffic among the continents and islands bordering the Atlantic basin - North America, South America, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
CONFLUENCE-1 is developed by Confluence Networks, founded in 2019 by a group of seasoned industry professionals with the express purpose of providing the first subsea system to interconnect key cable landing sites on the East Coast of the US – New York, Miami, Virginia Beach, and Jacksonville – and to develop an important new landing site in the Carolinas.
