Paris, France - September 2, 2010 - Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that it has been selected by eFive Telecoms, a South African telecommunications company, to build a new submarine cable network linking the west coast of Africa to South America. The system will be composed of two trunks - the first one connecting South Africa to Angola and Nigeria, and the second trunk linking Angola to Brazil.

eFive Telecoms selects Alcatel-Lucent to build new submarine cable network linking West Africa to South America


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that it has been selected by eFive Telecoms, a South African telecommunications company, to build a new submarine cable network linking the west coast of Africa to South America.

The Ile de Batz. Capable of laying cable for up to 40 days in a row, the ship travels the world laying fibre that forms the basis of connections between major nations and continents.

The system will be composed of two trunks - the first one connecting South Africa to Angola and Nigeria, and the second trunk linking Angola to Brazil.

The tiny fibres can carry up to 40Gbit/s of data and are bought from a specialist fibre manufacturer. They are tested thoroughly before being loaded on to the ships in Calais and should last for up to 25 years.

This end-to-end project will further increase connectivity in Africa, deliver additional capacity for wholesale and will also enhance service and traffic protection by providing critical cable route diversity to South America.

“We believe that high-growth areas such as the African continent require the development of new projects,” said Lawrence Mulaudzi, managing director of eFive Telecoms.
“The planned submarine network will also provide cable route diversity to South America, making the most economical and operational sense in the current landscape.”

“Growth in African internet and mobile telephony is driving service providers’ demand for more connectivity options to ensure higher reliability, as well as increased widespread access to bandwidth. This project will further position Africa as a major hub for broadband connectivity,” said Philippe Dumont, head of Alcatel-Lucent’s submarine network activity.
“This selection also confirms Alcatel-Lucent’s end-to-end expertise in helping operators address the fast growth of data-intensive services and applications.”

Currently, Alcatel is involved in two projects to connect African nations to new fibres, with each set to run from Portugal to South Africa, with several branch connections heading inland on the way to bring other nations online with broadband for the first time ever.

will be in charge of the project end-to-end including the system design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning.

Monitors for laying. A dedicated bank of monitors on the bridge helps crew members monitor the exact position the cable is being laid in, and calculates the effect of winds, currents and the boat's movement to help regulate the power the boat needs to keep the cable laying steady as the boat rocks around.

The system will also be maintained by Alcatel-Lucent through its Atlantic Private Maintenance Agreement (APMA) which currently covers over 100,000km of critical submarine cable infrastructure from the west coast of Africa to the Caribbean and as far north as Greenland.
