Xtera Submarine Solution Deployed on International Cable Network

Tamares Telecom, the provider of new international communications from and to Israel, and Xtera Communications Inc. (Xtera), a leading global provider of optical networking solutions, announce that the Tamares Telecom network providing seamless connectivity from Israel to international communication hubs in Europe is now fully operational.

For this innovative project, Xtera supplied its advanced, multi-purpose and field-proven Nu-Wave Optima™ platform deployed in a Submarine Line Terminal Equipment (SLTE) configuration with 70 x 100G capacity per fiber pair. Xtera partnered with IT International Telecom (IT), a subsea network integrator, to provide Tamares Telecom with a turnkey solution including supply and installation of both transmission equipment and cable.

Tamares Telecom is a communications service provider that operates and markets communication services, paving the way for faster and more reliable internet access. The new fiber optic network, including a new submarine cable connecting Israel to Marseille and from Marseille to Frankfurt and London, is designed to provide a secure, high speed connection for data traffic moving east and west for international carriers.

“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 & 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.”

Xtera’s Nu-Wave Optima™ platform is a unique modular optical transport system designed to lower the total cost of ownership by using a common, integrated set of modules for long-haul, unrepeatered and regional repeatered submarine applications.

Being the first and only 100G equipment in the field since the second half of 2011 with soft-decision Forward Error Correction (FEC), Xtera’s Nu-Wave Optima™ offers the industry’s most advanced 100G solution that is available for multiple optical networking applications. For terrestrial backbone networks, the Nu-Wave Optima™ equipment delivers an unrivalled line capacity of 15 Tb/s on more than 3,000 km. For unrepeatered applications, a capacity of 34 x 100G was recently transmitted over a cable attenuation exceeding 74 dB.

“Xtera is extremely pleased to be part, once again, of a new international submarine cable system project. This is a further example of how Xtera’s advanced technologies can benefit high-capacity networks for bandwidth-intensive services,” said Jon Hopper, President and CEO of Xtera.

The proven Nu-Wave Optima™ multi-purpose platform offers unparalleled 100G WDM performance in real network conditions based on the combination of the industry’s most powerful 100G technology and unique line equipment to face different span configurations.
