The C-Lion1 submarine cable laying under the Baltic Sea from Helsinki to Rostock, Germany was completed in early 2016. It connects the data hubs in Central Europe to Finland, the Nordics, and Asia.
International network projects
Cloud-based businesses require high-speed and more secure connections. Cinia's international network projects C-Lion2 and Far North Fiber are meeting increasing need for bandwidth and diversity.
Far North Fiber
The Far North Fiber is an Arctic submarine cable system connecting Europe and Asia. Cinia is working on the pan-Arctic submarine cable project in collaboration with Far North Digital and ARTERIA Network Corporation. Companies formed a joint corporation Far North Fiber, Inc. to work towards development of a submarine fiber optic system.
About Far North Fiber
- Estimated capacity 15 Tbit/s per fiber pair
- 15 000 km cable length from Japan to Norway
- The cable connects three continents and 85 % of the world's population
An international project
Global telecommunication backbone networks have lacked an optical submarine cable connecting Europe, Japan, and North America. The objective of the international project is to build the first trans-Arctic submarine telecom cable between Europe and Asia.
The planned, 15 000 km long, new Arctic cable will complement and secure existing connections and significantly increase the redundancy of global networks. The new cable route also supports development of the Arctic region.
