ECFS Consortium Selects Xtera Communications, Inc. for Upgrading its Caribbean Festoon Subsea Cable System
Apr 23 13
Eastern Caribbean Fiber System (ECFS) Consortium has selected Xtera Communications Inc. for the upgrade of its festoon subsea cable system. ECFS subsea cable system is made of 10 segments, connecting Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to Trinidad at the south of the Caribbean arc. Xtera's Nu-Wave Optima(TM) equipment offers the possibility to mix 10G and 100G channel rates to support existing and emerging high-capacity services.
Xtera Communications, Inc. Announces Launch of Next-Generation Optical Repeater for Subsea Cable Systems
Apr 22 13
Xtera Communications, Inc. announced the launch of a next-generation optical repeater for subsea cable systems. This enhances Xtera's well-established portfolio of solutions for subsea cable systems, putting Xtera in a position to offer a range of elements on a full turnkey basis that will allow service providers to build high performance and highly reliable submarine cable systems with significantly improved reach and capacity. A modular optical design allows the amplifiers to be tailored to different system requirements, with variants covering both short regional systems and very long transoceanic systems; another variant offers an optical bandwidth extending well beyond the normal EDFA C-band. Powering is also improved, with high efficiency drivers allowing the line current to be tuned to close to the optimum, thus reducing the overall voltage. The overall design enables a simplified manufacturing process, while still maintaining a very strong focus on reliability and value. The repeater is constructed from marine grade titanium, resulting in a very light and exceptionally strong unit that can be deployed to water depths of 8 km. It is also sufficiently small that it can pass directly through a plough during burial operations -- making it easier to handle during laying and assembling. The extensive design and qualification program for the repeater has involved the advice and collaboration of recognized industrial partners and highly experienced purchasers of submarine systems, one of whom provides formal auditing of the process.
