100Gbps Transmission System Solutions

Optical Submarine Cable Systems


Mitsubishi Electric is a premier submarine cable system manufacturer, and as a prime contractor is actively upgrading existing cables. Our history of success in submarine cable systems is unmatched.

Since 2003, as a prime contractor for the upgrading of Japan's domestic cables, Mitsubishi Electric has been supplying a novel 16-wave/bay line terminating unit (LTU) that has established a reputation for reliability exceeding even that of its highly-dependable predecessors.

The incorporation of 40 Gbit/s transmission technology into the TAT-14 cable network (May 2011), Asia-America Gateway (November 2011) and IMEWE (India - Middle East - Western Europe) Cable System (December 2011) established Mitsubishi Electric's reputation worldwide as a leader in the latest moves towards the terabit era.

During 2013, Mitsubishi completed the development of its 100 Gbit/s transmission technology, and this will significantly alter people’s style of communication.
