Cyprus, Lebanon to build submarine fibre optic cable system

Tuesday, Feb 14,2012, 8:40:14 PM

A submarine fibre optic cable system between Cyprus and Lebanon entitled Europa will be constructed jointly by the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) and the Lebanese Ministry of Telecommunications (Lebanese MoT), aspiring to become a resilient bridge between Europe and the Middle East.

EUROPA is expected to be a repeaterless submarine cable with at least 8 fibre-pairs that will be interconnected with ALEXANDROS subsystem to provide connectivity to European destinations and beyond, forming a telecommunications bridge between Middle East and Europe. At the same time, EUROPA will be complementing the existing CADMOS and IMEWE systems, to offer an alternative routing and improve resilience

According to a Cyta statement, the "submarine cable system will connect Lebanon with Cyprus and will be in a more advantageous state because it will be operating without the use of submarine repeaters."

Lebanese Minister of Telecommunications Nicolas Selmaoui, is in Cyprus together with officials and technocrats, at the invitation of Cyta.

During his visit, he will have official meetings with the Foreign Minister, the Minister of Communications and Works and the Finance Minister.
