MedNautilus deploys 100G undersea with Infinera DTN-X

Lightwave Staff

MedNautilus, the Mediterranean operations of the Telecom Italia Sparkle Group, has installed the Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) DTN-X packet-optical transport platform to support 100-Gbps service delivery across a Mediterranean submarine fiber-optic network.

The protected undersea fiber cable network is the largest in the Mediterranean, Infinera says. The submarine cable network connects Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel, and Cyprus. MedNautilus also provides connectivity to Bulgaria via terrestrial infrastructure. Overall, it operates a 7,500-km backbone and offers reach to major cities in Europe, North America, and the rest of the world via connections to Telecom Italia Sparkle’s pan-European and global backbone networks.

“Mednautilus now operates the first submarine cable network in Europe able to provide up to 100 Gbps international connectivity services with a solution that ensures top quality and efficiency standards,” said Mario Pirro, Sparkle’s executive vice president, technology. “The market in the region is demanding faster and more advanced services, and with the Infinera DTN-X solution for the provision of 100-Gbps services, we are able to provide the capacity we need in order to meet the fast-growing requirements of our customers throughout the markets covered by our backbone.”

“We are pleased that MedNautilus selected us to build out one of the regions fastest growing networks,” said Chris Champion, vice president, EMEA sales for Infinera. “The simplicity of the DTN-X allows us to upgrade any backbone quickly, enabling our customers to deploy services faster while offering outstanding reliability."
