Commercial traffic should be able to commence shortly. This milestone means that the 10,556km cable that connects Florida to Brazil is complete and prepared to provide more than 64 Tbps of capacity to users.

Built using SubCom's Open Cables concept, Monet was built in a way that provided the consortium with choice and flexibility in the selection of line cards while continuing to take advantage of the latest wet plant technology.
