As the host sponsor, Orange will be present at the Subsea Connect EMEA 2018 at Marseille, 10-11 July.

With more than 350 delegates from 150 organisations representing 31 countries, Subsea Connect is an important event for the submarine cable market.

We look forward to meeting you to discuss our range of innovative solutions, and find out how we can help you manage your needs, in line with future industry trends.

This year, Orange International Carriers has enhanced connectivity to boost its capacity to meet massive growth in data, IP and content demands between Asia and West Africa, via the Middle East.

New routes are now open between Marseille and Penmarc’h to improve connectivity between the existing submarine cables that land in both locations.

This unique access between Asia, the Middle-East and West Africa offers improved service, redundancy and security.

Forecasts for bandwidth growth 2017-2023 predict a tenfold volume increase between these regions and with this offer, Orange interconnects 15 submarine cables to stay ahead of future demand.

On the Penmarc’h side:


are linked to Marseille:

  • CHLS SMW4 Saint-Mauront
  • CHLS IMEWE Bonneveine
  • Interxion’s Data Center MRS1

The offer comes in protected or unprotected versions for capacities ranging from STM1 to 10G and can be leased or acquired as IRU.

Three new routes will become available between Marseille and Penmarch.

  • The first (Route n° 1) is already operational with a direct terrestrial connection between the two cities.
  • Two other routes – scheduled to be in service before the end of 2018 – will bring redundancy to the Orange offer.

Each route is between 1600km – 1700km in length, offering comparable RTDs of 18ms.
