China Telecom and TransTeleCom (TTK) have completed one of the world’s first terrestrial high-bit-rate fibre routes connecting China and Europe.
The 100G cable connects data points across Asia to Frankfurt, Germany, with interconnected communications lines at Russian Zabaikalsk and Chinese Manchuria.
In order to complete deployment, the two companies developed a new gateway interface tat was built on the border between the countries.
The terrestrial cable will provide an alternative route to subsea cables that currently carry a significant amount of traffic from Asia to Europe, with Russia acting as the “optimal communication bridge” and the shortest path, according to TTK.
“It is important to have reliable high-rate terrestrial channel with low latency for our growing needs in data transmission between Europe and Asia,” shared Deng Xiao Feng, CEO of China Telecom Global.
“TTK has one of the largest backbone networks in Russia and is trusted partner of China Telecom in Europe-Asia transit traffic market. The new route gives us an opportunity to offer highest-quality telecommunication services to our clients both inside and outside China.”
