Xtera Communications, Inc. Wins Contract to Build New Subsea Cable System

Xtera Communications, Inc. announced the award of a contract on a turnkey basis by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), to build a new undersea fiber optic cable system to be performed in the Southern Command area of responsibility. The cable system is approximately 1,500 km long and will enable connectivity to the Defense Information System Network (DISN) via fiber optic technology. Xtera will supply its turnkey 100G optimized submarine system solution for this project, including undersea optical repeaters, Nu-Wave Optima Submarine Line Terminal Equipment (SLTE), cable and all marine services. Xtera's new undersea repeaters are unique in using Raman optical amplification to produce very low noise levels and thus allow the distance between repeaters to be maximized. Xtera's 100G SLTE technology, launching multiple 100G wavelengths into the optical fiber for high total throughput, is well established, with its first deployment on a submarine system in early 2012.

Xtera Communications Inc. Receives $31.22 Million Federal Contract

Xtera Communications Inc. was awarded a $31,220,394 federal contract by the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization-National Capital Region, for undersea fiber optic cables.
