OTEGLOBE won the Best European Project award at the Global Carrier Awards 2017 that took place in London on Wednesday, 25 October.
This award was given to OTEGLOBE for the re-design and transformation of its backbone network with the acquisition of thousands of km of new dark fiber routes across Europe.
Till now the company operated two fully protected, optical, terrestrial backbone networks, namely TBN & GWEN stretching from Greece to W. Europe through the Balkans and Italy respectively.
In order to offer its clientele advanced telecommunication services and cope with the ever increasing bandwidth demands in its region, OTEGLOBE decided to re-design and transform its backbone networks to a unified, optical multi-terabit network of mesh architecture, extending from S.E. Europe to W. Europe.
OTEGLOBE’s redesigned backbone consists of 4+ diverse fiber routes between Greece and the Balkans to Italy and W. Europe (total of 21,000 km of acquired fiber), offering unparalleled, seamless connectivity options in the region.
Moreover with its participation in the new, intercontinental AAE-1 cable, OTEGLOBE now offers to the market a completely new, alternative path for connecting Europe to Asia through Greece and emerges as a reliable hub in the Mediterranean basin. Traffic from Asia is routed through AAE-1 new subsea cable to OTEGLOBE’s landing station at Chania, and from then on through OTEGLOBE’s diverse and protected terrestrial network to Europe, ensuring resilience and diversity in the region.
