Tyco Telecom receives contract for Sakhalin Island undersea network

Tyco Telecommunications, a business unit of Tyco Electronics has been selected by TransTelecom Co. (TTC), a Russian backbone operator, as the sole provider of the first undersea communications system connecting the Sakhalin Island to TTC's digital mainland backbone. The network, to be laid across the Tatarsky Strait, will eliminate the region's dependence on the expensive and less-reliable satellite channels it had previously utilized for communications.

"Until now, Sakhalin Island's disconnect from the mainland seriously limited its access to the existing state-of-the-art communications system," stated Sergey Lipatov, president of TTC. "With Tyco Telecommunications' solution, TTC will now offer government organizations and commercial clients in the region most in-demand services including high-speed Internet access, inter-city and international communication channels, and ultimately long-haul services throughout Russia."

The 2006 project implementation will deploy 214 km of STM-16 (2.5 Gbits/sec) equipment 1 m under the seabed of the Tatarsky Strait. The chosen depth and burial method will enhance the reliability of the network and will significantly decrease the probability of accidental damage to the cable by ships' anchors.

"We are proud to spearhead the delivery of subsea communications to Sakhalin Island and enable this fast-growing region to take full advantage of TTC's tremendous communications backbone in mainland Russia," stated Bernard Logan, director of sales for Tyco Telecommunications. "Our partnership with TTC is a good example of Tyco Telecommunications' ability to provide high-bandwidth, highly reliable communications solutions worldwide."
