Retelit, the Italian landing party for the AAE-1 consortium, has announced the successful arrival of the AAE-1 cable in the Italian city of Bari.

The 25,000km submarine network – which has a design capacity of 40Tbps – will connect Asia, the Middle East, East Africa and Europe, and is scheduled to be ready for service (RFS) by Q4 2016. The cable landing station in Bari connects to the fibre-optic infrastructure owned by Retelit, providing a new alternative Mediterranean gateway to and from Europe. With the bulk of the undersea network already installed – including eleven of 20 shore-end landings – AAE-1 is on track to reach its target RFS date, at the end of 2016. When operational, the cable will provide its customers with the lowest latency and express connectivity available between Asia and Europe.
