Telmex and America Movil have commercially launched the AMX1 submarine cable system. Telmex and America Movil have established the Cancun cable landing point. The 17,800 km submarine cable system is specifically designed for 100G transmission. Spanning over transoceanic distances, from the US to Central America and Brazil, the AMX1 System will enable America Movil to provide international connectivity to all its subsidiaries.

The cable deployment took 19 months and required overall investments of over USD 1.1 billion. America Movil and Telmex will leverage the AMX1 cable system to provide voice, data and video services for their customers in Mexico and Latin America for the next 20 years.

The AMX1 System will connect seven countries with eleven landing points: Miami and Jacksonville (United States), Barranquilla and Cartagena (Colombia), Fortaleza, Salvador & Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic), Cancun (Mexico), San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Puerto Barrios (Guatemala). Alcatel-Lucent has been selected for the operation and maintenance of the AMX-1 System.
