TE SubCom Starts Manufacturing of Hibernia Express Submarine Cable

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in undersea communications technology, announces the commencement of the new Hibernia Express submarine cable system.

The 4,600 km cable will provide the lowest-latency fiber-optic path between New York and London, connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia and Brean, UK, with terrestrial fiber to extend connectivity to the major metro areas.

Hibernia Express will initially launch with 100 Gbps transmission capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform. It will be a 6-fiber-pair submarine cable, with a portion of the fibers optimized for lowest latency and a portion optimized for 100×100 Gbps design capacity. The total cross-sectional design capacity of the cable will be over 53 Tbps.

“Having a unique, low latency route combined with increased capacity allows Hibernia Express to offer unmatched services to trans-Atlantic connectivity customers,” said Bjarni Thorvardarson of Hibernia Networks. “As a pillar of the submarine cable industry, we are confident that TE SubCom will deliver a highly advanced cable system and world-class implementation. We’re thrilled to have reached this critical point in the deployment of Hibernia Express.”

“Our company’s technology portfolio and extensive trans-Atlantic installation experience make us an ideal supplier for the Hibernia Express system,” said John Mitchell, President, TE Subcom. “We’re looking forward to tackling the special challenges of this unique project and supplying the newest high capacity, low latency cable across the Atlantic.”
