Israeli communications services provider Tamares Telecom has begun operations on a new network that combines undersea and terrestrial links. The network, which connects Israel to hubs in Europe, uses the Nu-Wave Optima platform from Xtera Communications Inc. in a submarine line terminal equipment (SLTE) configuration.

The Nu-Wave Optima platform offers 70x100-Gbps capacity per fiber pair on the network, which includes a new submarine cable that connects Israel to Marseille. From Marseille, the network continues to Frankfurt and London.

Xtera partnered with IT International Telecom (IT), a subsea network integrator, to provide Tamares Telecom with a turnkey package including supply and installation of both transmission equipment and cable.

"This region has experienced explosive growth in traffic from the local high-tech boom as well as R&D centers of global giants including IBM, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Intel, and Motorola," said Amir Goldstein, executive vice chairman of Tamares Telecom. "We are happy to work with Xtera and IT's cutting-edge technology that enables our network to provide carriers and enterprises with confidence in the quality and security of their international connections."
