Retelit has announced an expansion of its network at Capacity Middle East unveiling 160 Gbps of new capacity in Asia and in Europe.

The new routes are meant to support those already offered by the Italian carrier through its operative capacity on the 25,000km AAE-1 subsea cable, which spans three continents, running from Marseille to Hong Kong.

Retelit said it has now opened up new and diversified routes for the Mediterranean and the Far East, including a new direct connection between Singapore and Hong Kong. It also includes a ring between Sicily and Greece and a diverse link from Italy to the Far East including an additional direct connection between Palermo and Singapore.

Retelit’s said its increasingly comprehensive international presence will permit businesses, operators and OTT’s to connect with the main European, Asian and Middle Eastern cities in a safe secure and redundant manner because of solutions which include secure restoration and backup of data between the sections reached.

"Our infrastructure and our connections on the three continents reached connects Europe, through Southern Italy, with the areas in the world of greatest demographic, industrial and technological development," stated Federico Protto, chief executive officer and general manager of Retelit. 

"In this environment, Italy is increasingly a strategic meeting point for data traffic flows from the Far East, the Middle East and Africa to Europe, and vice versa. The true challenge is to make these hubs attractive, with returns generated for the entire country, by creating infrastructural and commercial conditions which support investment by those transporting massive quantities of content and Internet traffic, from major International Carriers to the so-called OTT’s (Over the Tops)."
