HAWK SUBMARINE CABLE SYSTEM
In July 2009, PrimeTel proceeded with the landing of a fibre optics submarine cable system named ‘Hawk’ with a capacity of 20 Tbps. The Hawk cable is part of the world’s biggest submarine fibre optics cable system network, owned and managed by Reliance Globalcom. In 2011 the submarine cable was activated. This is the first time an independent telecommunications infrastructure is connected to an international network, securing alternative routing for the island and reinforcing Cyprus’ position as a telecoms hub in the wider region.
SUBMARINE CABLE LANDING STATION
For the completion of the project, PrimeTel built a fully equipped cable landing station located in Ayia Varvara area.
