Huawei Marine Networks Co., Ltd. (Huawei Marine) today announced that the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) has selected Huawei Marine Optix BWS 1600S to upgrade the Bahamas Domestic Submarine Network International (BDSNi).

The BDSNi system links more than 20 sites between Bahamas and Haiti, and stretches across about 3,500 kilometers, the longest section of which is 343 kilometers. It has played an important role in ensuring a robust telecommunications network to meet the expanding requirements of e-Commerce, e-Education, e-Trade, and e-Government on these islands.

Huawei Marine will enable BDSNi to deliver more flexible and cost effective services with the implementation of this upgrade capacity, providing 640 Gbps through the application of proven enhanced Raman technology. This connectivity and the ability to implement the new services between the main islands of the Bahamas and Haiti, will provide a future proof platform to enable BTC to service expanding regional demand. The application of the Optix BWS 1600S with in-service upgrades and a compact footprint will enable BDSNi to capitalize on a small footprint thus providing further operational benefits.

"I appreciate the trust that BTC has placed Huawei Marine's exemplary project experience. We have been honored to support the BDSNi system in this effort," stated Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Huawei Marine. "With our equipment, technology and expertise, we have been enthusiastic about providing BDSNi with a comprehensive and cost-effective undersea solution that enables scalable, high-speed bandwidth service delivery."
