Silica Networks, Metrotel activate new Buenos Aires fibre link

Thursday 24 September 2020 | 11:57 CET | News
Argentinian fibre-optic infrastructure firm Silica Networks, a Grupo Datco company, has completed a new transport link between El Talar and Las Toninas in the Buenos Aires province, reports Telesemana. The joint project between Silica and business-focused operator Metrotel saw the partners invest USD 10 million in a 450-kilometer fibre-optic connection to the mooring stations in Las Toninas, with an alternative route that avoids the danger of outages caused by single points of failure, said the report.
