MENA Submarine Cable Deploys Infinera DTN-X XTC

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Submarine Cable System, which is owned by Orascom Telecom, has deployed the Infinera DTN-X XTC Series platform across its subsea network. Specifically, the Infinera DTN-X XTC Series integrates the subsea network connecting the Mediterranean and Middle East regions with MENA’s existing Infinera terrestrial network.

The Infinera DTN-X XTC-10, featuring FlexCoherent technology and Instant Bandwidth, enables MENA to rapidly deploy bandwidth in increments of 100 Gbps.

MENA’s infrastructure provides wholesale capacity to global networks via Asia and the Middle East.

“This subsea network upgrade integrated with MENA’s existing terrestrial network enables MENA to deliver bandwidth quickly and efficiently on a critical route between Europe, Middle East and Arabian Gulf countries,” said Kamran Malik, CEO at MENA. “The Infinera DTN-X XTC Series provides robust reliability, flexibility and scalability, meeting the high standards that MENA seeks in a vendor. This helps MENA offer wholesale customers bandwidth as needed in 100G increments.”

“We are pleased to collaborate with MENA on its subsea network upgrade, integrating with the existing terrestrial network,” said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, EMEA at Infinera. “This network upgrade enables MENA to provide differentiated wholesale international capacity in its markets and supports the growth of the Mediterranean and Middle East economy with on-demand scale and efficiency.”
