TE SubCom Begins MAREA Subsea Cable Manufacture

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has been named the system supply partner for the new MAREA submarine cable across the Atlantic Ocean.

TE SubCom has completed the route survey and began manufacture of the system at its facility in Newington, New Hampshire. The parties are on track to begin laying cable using TE SubCom’s installation ships next year, with a scheduled completion in October 2017, the company noted.

As announced by Facebook and Microsoft in May 2016, MAREA will consist of eight fiber-pairs and an initial estimated design capacity of 160 Terabits/sec.

The new 6,600 km submarine cable system will connect the United States to southern Europe: from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Bilbao, Spain.

Aaron Stucki, president of TE SubCom said: “Being named the installation partner for the ground-breaking MAREA cable system further strengthens our position as a leading supplier of the world’s most reliable fiber optic cable systems. We look forward to working with Microsoft and Facebook on what will be a highly advanced and scalable new system.”
