Xtera Wraps Up 2nd Repeatered Subsea Cable Project in Atlantic Ocean
Xtera Communications has completed marine installation of its second repeatered submarine cable system that was deployed in the last quarter of 2015 in the Atlantic Ocean.
The approximately 1,500 km long cable system is 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 (UK), Guernsey (UK) 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, Xtera Submarine Business.
He added: “Our innovative repeater adds nicely to our portfolio of flexible solutions for building new subsea infrastructure, upgrading existing cable assets under water, or recovering and re-laying existing cable assets and confirms Xtera’s position as a global turnkey supplier for the subsea cable system industry.”
