Xtera Completes Installation of Submarine Cable System

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
DALLAS, Jan. 25, 2016 — Xtera Communications Inc., a provider of high-capacity optical transport solutions, has completed the marine installation of its second repeatered submarine cable system.

Deployed in the Atlantic Ocean last year, the 1500-km-long cable system was built with Xtera’s Raman-based repeaters.

"This new repeatered project has been deployed after the successful upgrade of the High-Capacity Undersea Guernsey Optical Fiber (HUGO) subsea cable system connecting Porthcurno, [England], Guernsey, [England] and Lannion, [France), where Xtera's next-generation wideband repeaters were inserted into the existing cable plant to increase system capacity," said Stuart Barnes, senior vice president and general manager of Xtera’s submarine business division.

Xtera provides optical transport technologies for high bandwidth demand to telecommunications service providers, content service providers, enterprises and government entities globally.
