Orange, Tunisiana, Interoute plan new undersea cable

Friday 17 May 2013 | 08:34 CET | News
Orange Tunisia and Qtel mobile subsidiary Tunisiana have signed an agreement with European carrier Interoute for the commissioning of a submarine cable connecting Kelibia, Tunisia, to Mazara del Vallo, Sicily. The 170 km cable called Didon will be Tunisia's first private submarine cable. It is due to be commissioned in April 2014 and to deliver a capacity of 8Tbps per operator. The cable will connect to Interoute's European fibre network at the landing point in Italy. It will use Alcatel-Lucent 100G submarine technology and will expand the capabilities of Orange Tunisia and Tunisiana's existing international networks, providing better throughput to support growth in fixed and mobile data traffic.
