Wednesday 23 December 2020 | 10:04 CET | News
Swedish infrastructure vendor Hexatronic has been selected by Crosslake Fibre to supply the submarine fibre optic cable for the CrossChannel Fibre project, the first cable system to be built across the English Channel in nearly 20 years. Connecting the French capital with Slough, in southern England, CrossChannel Fibre will contain 96 fibre pairs that will each provide over 20 Tbps of throughput. It will measure 550 km, with a subsea section of 150 km in length. The marine route survey for the project was completed in November and the cable system is expected to become operational in Q4 2021.
