Huawei wins Libyan cable contract

15 Jan 2010

Huawei Marine Networks, a joint venture between Huawei Technologies and Global Marine, has announced that it has been awarded a contract to build out Libyan telco LPTIC’s ‘T-E’ submarine cable project. The equipment vendor will provide end-to-end turnkey solutions for the deployment of the 177km cable, which will connect the Libyan coastal cities of Tubrok and Emasaed, with a maximum design capacity of 3.2Tbps. The system will not only integrate the national backbone network, providing extensive route protection, but will also improve Libya’s international communications bandwidth to meet the increase in demand for external communications services. The project is expected to be delivered in mid-2010.
