Delivering a submarine cable system in Tunisia

Huawei Marine Networks Co., Ltd. has successfully delivered the Hannibal submarine cable communications system for Tunisie Telecom.

Spanning 180km of the Mediterranean Sea, connecting Tunisia’s Kelibia with Italy’s Mazara del Vallo, the system provides an initial capacity of 40 Gb/s and is readily upgradeable up to 3.2Tb/s. In close cooperation with Tunisie Telecom, Huawei Marine formed a project team of senior industry experts to design and implement a series of detailed project plans and exhaustive risk response measures in order to complete its first turnkey submarine cable project. By fully utilising the resources of its parent companies, Huawei Technologies and Global Marine Systems, Huawei Marine successfully delivered the project in only eight months.
“As well as meeting the growing demand for bandwidth in Tunisia, the Hannibal system has fortified the security of its international connections,” said Mr. Montassar Ouaili, chairman and CEO of Tunisie Telecom. “The successful delivery relies heavily on Huawei Marine’s leading technical solution and professional delivery capabilities. It proves that Huawei Marine is the best choice and a dependable partner.”
“In the Hannibal project, we applied our cutting-edge unrepeatered solution to system design and installation. Huawei Marine is committed to offering high-performance and reliable submarine cable systems that maximise benefits for customers.” said Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Huawei Marine.
