The research and education (R&E) networks of the Nordic countries are preparing for participating in the upcoming Arctic Connect Submarine Cable (ACSC) project. This will open a new, fast and short route connecting Europe and Asia in the global R&E community. Hence, NORDUnet today has signed a Letter of Intent with Cinia for a dedicated fiber pair in the Arctic Connect Submarine Cable System. The announcement was made at the virtual global telecom conference PTC’21.
Arctic Connect is an international project including key stakeholders from Finland, Norway, Japan and Russia. The system will have its European cable landing stations in Northern Norway and Finland, with connections further southwards through Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark extending to the rest of Europe.
