United Cable Company to Market C-Lion1

Finland-based Cinia Group signed up David Ross Group (DRG) to provide asset and capacity sales for C-Lion1, the new subsea fiber optic cable running under the Baltic Sea connecting Finland and Germany.

The David Ross Group affiliate, United Cable Company (UCC), should provide Cinia with a presence outside of Europe and offer global connectivity solutions to new target groups.

“The David Ross Group has been a trusted advisor through every phase of our undersea cable project and we look forward to their continued support as we enter operations,” states Jukka-Pekka Joensuu, executive vice president of Cinia.

“C-Lion1 offers a new route between Finland and Western Europe that opens up diversity alternatives for many countries in the region. The globally recognized subsea experts at DRG and UCC will help us make these services available to a broader market,” states Cinia’s partnership director Eeva Liljanto.

“Network operators continually seek to improve resiliency and latency performance,” continues Eric Gutshall, founder & global head of asset and capacity sales of DRG affiliate United Cable Company. “C-Lion1 is a terrific asset that supports both. The timing for this next phase of the relationship couldn’t be better with C-Lion1 planning to enter commercial service later this month.”
