AAE-1 consortium to upgrade cable to 200Gbps

Wednesday 31 October 2018 | 15:15 CET | News
Italian telecommunications infrastructure provider Retelit has announced that the management committee of the Asia Africa Europe-1 (AAE-1) submarine cable consortium has decided to double the network's speed from 100Gbps to 200Gbps. The 25,000 km system – owned by a consortium of 19 global service providers – connects Asia, the Middle East, East Africa and Europe and has a nominal design capacity of over 40Tbps. The decision to install 200Gbps technology comes just 18 months after the activation of AAE-1 and two years ahead of schedule, said Retelit.
