C&W, TE SubCom Upgrade Trinidad-Curacao Subsea Cable

C&W Networks, a division of Cable & Wireless Communications, has signed an agreement with TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, to complete an upgrade to the ECLink, a cable system linking Trinidad and Curacao.

ECLink is the latest regional system within C&W Networks’ 48,000 km of subsea fiber to receive an upgrade to its capacity using TE SubCom technology.

Built in 2007 by TE SubCom, ECLink is a 938 km regional undersea cable system connecting Trinidad and Curacao.

The upgraded system will be designed to accommodate five 100 Gb plug-and-play wavelengths and will have two 100 Gb wavelengths activated.

“We’re excited to once again partner with TE SubCom and pleased to have chosen them as the provider for the ECLink regional upgrade,” said Paul Scott, president of C&W.

“We value C&W Networks’ continued preference for our company’s technology portfolio and regional expertise in support of these upgrades,” said Michael Rieger, vice president, TE SubCom.
