HOUSTON -- Emerald Atlantis Limited (Emerald Networks) today announced the selection of TE SubCom and the signing of a system supply contract. The execution of the contract, bringing it into force, enables the construction of the Emerald Express Trans-Atlantic Cable System. The first phase will provide both low-latency and ultra-high bandwidth capacity between New York and London, with additional fiber connectivity to Iceland and Dublin. This advanced submarine fiber optic system will be 6,700km in length and achieve the ultra-high trans-Atlantic capacity rates of 100WL x 100Gbs.

“The Emerald Express system’s combination of a 100x100Gbps per fiber pair design, unique route and optimized low latency will enable Emerald Networks to meet the tremendous demand for bandwidth driven by cloud services, while providing Iceland with the required connectivity to support data centers powered by long-term competitively priced, 100% carbon free renewable energy,” said Greg Varisco, President, Emerald Networks.
