Tyco to Build Undersea Cable System in Gulf of Mexico

Tyco Telecommunications signed a contract with Houston-based BP America Inc. to supply an undersea fiber optic system serving offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. The system will comprise the undersea backbone of a regional communications network, providing diverse connectivity from BP's Gulf of Mexico offshore production facilities back to the regional operating center in Houston, Texas. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The system will initially link seven deep-water production platforms with landings in Freeport, Texas and Pascagoula, Mississippi. The network incorporates an upgrade capability designed to support 64 platforms. http://www.tycotelecom.com
