ALLEN, Texas -- Xtera Communications, Inc., a leading global provider of optical networking solutions, and LIME, the Caribbean arm of Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), have successfully completed the installation of the Caribbean East West Cable network.

The 1,700 km multi-million dollar submarine cable connects Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic. The ultra high bandwidth transmission system reinforces LIME's position as the Caribbean's premier wholesale capacity provider of voice, data and evolving media-rich services.

The undersea cable will also enable LIME to meet the rising demand for high-speed bandwidth from consumers and business customers in the 14 Caribbean islands where the company currently operates. It will also facilitate the roll out of a slate of new fixed broadband and mobile data services that LIME is currently developing for customers which require high quality capacity support.

In addition, the network will enhance the ability of LIME's parent company, CWC to serve its carrier customers in North and Latin America.

LIME entrusted Xtera with the planning, design, engineering, installation, and commissioning and project management of this submarine cable project. The network uses Xtera's NXT submarine line terminal equipment and associated management equipment to provide a day one capacity of 120 Gb/s across the system and is capable of being upgraded to ultimately transport 720 Gb/s using the supplied technology, with even higher values possible with future technology.
