Telxius Announces that the new Dunant cable adds to MAREA for an unmatched transatlantic proposition, fully operation right now.

The transatlantic network route is one of the busiest in the world and the Dunant cable is set to channel the enormous growth of data and content needs between Europe and the United States. Dunant is a new generation, 6,600 km long transatlantic cable, connecting the United States with the French Atlantic coast, now combined with MAREA to make one of the lowest latency and highest capacity routes globally. Dunant has just become fully in service and MAREA has boosted transatlantic connectivity in its just over two years’ lifetime. This is how Telxius is now bridging the Atlantic with the two most modern cables on its unique, diverse transatlantic route, further south than other cables in the North Atlantic.


Telxius transatlantic proposition directly connects Ashburn, Richmond and Virginia Beach in the US to Paris, Madrid and Derio (Bilbao) in Europe. This means direct access to areas with the largest concentration of data centers in the world and key connectivity hubs. The addition of Dunant to the Telxius portfolio allows customers to benefit from Telxius’ extensive footprint, network capabilities and range of services.
