Latency is the new currency of our digitalized world.
Everything, everywhere, will be digital – and every millisecond counts when it comes to critical applications for different verticals, e.g. mobility, finance, or e-health.
The two strong business regions of South Europe and Latin America share many similarities when it comes to culture, language, and the demands on the markets, and will now – with the new EllaLink subsea cable – grow together even more strongly. The huge demand for low-latency and high-quality data exchange between the two continents requires the shortest and fastest connection possible. This is what users on both sides of the Atlantic deserve for a great Internet experience and why our partnership with EllaLink is a perfect match for both sides.
With this partnership, DE-CIX will provide access to the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem in Southern Europe, through their IXs in Lisbon, Madrid, and Marseille.
EllaLink is a founder of Sines Tech - Innovation & Data Center Hub, alongside the City of Sines and ourselves, aicep Global Parques, the Portuguese state-owned enterprise managing the land hosting the hub.
EllaLink inspired us to set up a CLS and DC costal area in SW Portugal.
Sines Tech was born with an excellent geographic positioning, in Europe’s West Coast, at the intersection of the major links connecting the Western Hemisphere. Building on a favourable seashore for cable landing, we work on providing fast licensing and strong backhaul, scalable land, sweet and sea water, grid connection and renewable power.
The decision to partner with EllaLink at a strategic level to support institutions worldwide to access robust, ultra-low latency connectivity and infrastructure between Europe and Latin America has proved extremely productive.
These routes between Sao Paulo, Lisbon and Madrid open up a wide range of possibilities for BSO to better serve proprietary trading firms, capital banks, and hedge funds, along with the Oil & Gas sector and professional gaming community.
This direct low latency link spanning Europe & South America also provides diversity options to the legacy sub-sea systems traversing North America, playing a pivotal role in BSO's ability to deliver a market leading solution for mission critical client services.
The synergies between the two companies also allow for an agile, fluid approach to serving our joint communities
EMACOM had the opportunity to work with the Ellalink and the experience was positive. The Ellalink team demonstrated good levels of responsiveness and availability, which enabled the project to progress accordingly with the expectations. Their commitment to maintaining high service standards was evident throughout the collaboration, as they consistently demonstrated to understand EMACOM's requirements and provided guidance when needed. Overall, the collaboration with the Ellalink team was professional and productive, and EMACOM would welcome the opportunity to work with them again on future submarine cable projects.
