stc Expands through Agreement with Infinera to Adopt ICE6

stc and Infinera announced an agreement to deploy Infinera’s ICE6 800G-capable technology on stc’s submarine cable networks enabling new regional and international connectivity services and infrastructure development including the development of cognitive cities.

stc is a telecommunications and wholesale service provider in the Middle East, offering national and international services over all major international cable systems that pass through the region.

This project will expand stc’s international network, using Infinera’s ICE6 800G-capable technology and GX Series Compact Modular Platform. These development projects will increase the capacity of the international network by 10-fold based on initial design capacity.

This substantial increase will meet growing bandwidth demands by providing the greatest capacity at the greatest reach, resulting in lower cost and power per bit and higher spectral efficiency.
