TIM has announced that it has completed work on a major project: transporting a submarine cable with a high transmission potential that connects the Continent with Sardinia.

The project has the task of supporting one of the two major islands in the connection with the remaining part of, using submarine fiber optic cables capable of supporting speeds up to 100 Gbps. In this way, ultra-broadband will be favored to meet the request for data increases recorded during the lockdown period linked to the coronavirus.



The solution is part of the National photonic platform, that is a very high speed network that is structured and made possible by the latest generation of photonic nodes. In detail, data transmission up to 800 Gbps is guaranteed up to 200 KM away from the source, while, exceeding 800 but remaining within 1800, it goes to 100 Gbps.

The complex submarine system is the largest an operator has ever created and, once landed, the network continues for over 16 KM of fiber, supporting traffic of over 50 Tbps.

The connection below sea level was made between Civitavecchia and Sassari and, even here, TIM can boast of being the national operator capable of creating long branches that reach 430 KM in length, with the first 200 going from Civitavecchia to island of La Maddalena.

“The creation of the new system to guarantee very high capacity connectivity in Sardinia is a further confirmation of TIM's technological leadership in the design and development of new generation networks. This is a national record that adds further value to the TIM network. These are the words of a satisfied one Michele Gamberini, Chief Technology and Information Officer TIM.
