Egypt’s TE, Oman’s ZOI to build digital corridor

Telecom Egypt, the first integrated telecommunications operator in Egypt and one of the largest subsea cable operators in the region, announced on Monday its co-operation with Zain-Omantel International (ZOI) to establish a unique digital corridor.
The digital corridor connects the Mediterranean Sea, the Arabian Sea, and the Arabian Gulf, making it an unprecedented Eurasian data highway.
The new infrastructure will extend from Oman’s Arabian Sea and Gulf coasts to Egypt’s Mediterranean coast, using a large number of optical fibre cables and an advanced mix of land and underwater segments.
The terrestrial segments across Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt offer unparalleled reliability and protection.
While the subsea section, which directly connects Saudi Arabia and Egypt via the Red Sea, will have a high-capacity, repeaterless cable system.
The route design will offer optimal resiliency and reliability to Telecom Egypt and ZOI’s partners and customers.
Additionally, the infrastructure will reach Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, and Jordan via ZOI’s network and partnerships with licensed cable landing parties in these countries.

“As we look for innovative ways to better serve our customers, we will consistently strive to provide a seamless international connectivity network and increase our diversity layers, without compromising quality, cost or speed. We will do this by leveraging on both Telecom Egypt’s established history in the subsea cables arena and its experienced and competent team,” Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at Telecom Egypt, Mohamed Nasr, has said.
