Xtera Communications, a global provider of optical and IP networking solutions has been contracted by Togo Telecom to deploy a high capacity fibre-optic network across Togo.
Phase I of the work was completed in January 2010.
After completion, Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) long-distance domestic network will be migrated to a new optical layer relying on advanced broadband optical amplification technology for higher capacity. This will provide enhanced network resilience and availability.
A high-capacity, reliable backhaul system, and connecting landlocked countries in the west sub-Saharan area to international submarine cable systems will also be created by new network.
