PEACE Cable and PCCW Global using Infinera's ICE6 for Mediterranean segment

07 June 2021

The Pakistan and East Africa Connecting Europe (PEACE) subsea cable system and PCCW Global will deploy Infinera ICE6 optical engine equipment on the Mediterranean segment of the PEACE submarine cable system.

This will enable the PEACE submarine cable to transmit capacity of nearly 25 terabits per fibre pair, and lay the foundation for better service scalability, flexibility and differentiation.

Following extensive technology evaluation and application analysis, the Infinera ICE6 solution was selected based on its outstanding capabilities, including the ability to achieve industry-leading, commercially deployable performance with a combination of ultra-high baud rates and an advanced modulation technique known as Long Codeword Probabilistic Constellation Shaping. Both capabilities are using the latest 7nm ASIC technology, highly optimized algorithms, and Infinera’s second generation Nyquist subcarriers.
