A new Generation Cable

A new generation system (“Open Cable”) neutral and independent and, as such, the Medusa submarine cable system responds to the current challenges of submarine connections:

  • Resilience and low latency: establishing new routes to new landing points or data centres and creating new fibre routes to reduce latencies in existing networks.
  • Capacity proof: providing a future-proof infrastructure that will cope with the annual bandwidth growth thanks to high count of fibre pairs.
  • Open Access: promoting open access to all landing stations.
