C&W Networks Picks Xtera for 100G Undersea Upgrade

C&W Networks has selected Xtera Communications for upgrading its submarine cable systems in the western Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean Sea to 100G.

Specifically, C&W Networks has bolstered its subsea network capacity by upgrading several unrepeatered and repeatered segments to 100G, using Xtera’s Nu-Wave OptimaT multi-purpose optical networking platform. The submarine cable systems were upgraded with new 100G channels to include the 1,570 km Gemini – Bermuda cable system, the 1,700 km Caribbean – US (CBUS) cable system, the 1,700 km East West Cable (EWC) system, the 1,440 km festoon Eastern Caribbean Fiber System (ECFS), and part of the 8,700 km ARCOS-1 submarine ring. The same optical networking platform was used over the unrepeatered and repeatered segments, enabling a unified, seamless network from an operational perspective.

“Strengthening our relationship with C&W Networks, these new upgrade projects are further evidence of the confidence network operators place in Xtera’s capabilities to
improve subsea optical transmission infrastructure already deployed across the world,” said Jon Hopper, President and Chief Executive Officer of Xtera.
