CSquared  and Adtran partner to boost Liberian fibre connectivity

Liberia’s only wholesale infrastructure provider, CSquared, has announced that it is using FSP 3000 open optical transport technology from fibre networking solutions company Adtran to bring high-speed broadband connectivity to homes and businesses across Liberia.

With comprehensive fibre assurance, Adtran says its solution enables CSquared to rapidly deploy an open-access 350-kilometre backbone connecting Liberia to Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire.

As CSquared puts it, with a mission to address Africa’s lack of robust, high-capacity infrastructure, it is increasing access to e-commerce, remote learning, telemedicine and other digital services capable of transforming lives and livelihoods.

Built on the Adtran FSP 3000 open optical transport solution, CSquared’s new backbone infrastructure will initially transport 100Gbit/s data loads from Monrovia to the border of Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire without the need for signal regeneration. The flexible ROADM (reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer)-based network provides the highest levels of resilience, says Adtran. 

The solution also includes Adtran’s intelligent FSP 150 Ethernet access devices and ALM real-time fibre assurance platform. This delivers end-to-end visibility, enabling faster repair cycles. CSquared has already deployed Adtran’s FSP 3000 technology in Ghana and Togo.

With the backing of Google, the IFC, Mitsui and Convergence Partners, and a special partnership with USAID, CSquared is Liberia’s only wholesale infrastructure provider, delivering services to all MNOs, ISPs and the government of Liberia.
