CSquared and Adtran delivering high-speed connectivity to Togo

CSquared has selected Adtran’s FSP 3000 open optical transport technology to bring high-speed broadband services to Togo.

The Adtran FSP 3000 open optical transport solution gives CSquared’s network a total transport capacity of 400Gbit/s. Featuring Adtran’s intelligent, compact and power-efficient FSP 150 Ethernet access devices, the backbone and metro networks ensure residential and business customers can expect reliable, symmetrical services ranging from 1Gbit/s to 10Gbit/s.

Enabling more automatic and flexible optical networking, CSquared’s scalable infrastructure caters to changing traffic demands quickly and efficiently. Google’s Equiano subsea cable is a key enabler of the new network, giving Togo 20 times more bandwidth than any other cable serving West Africa. With the network connecting to this cable, CSquared gains enough transport capacity to support faster services in the future.

“Leveraging Adtran’s optical networking technology, we can scale rapidly to connect some of Togo’s most underserved communities to high-quality broadband. Our new network guarantees widespread, affordable connectivity, ensuring no citizen gets left behind in the race to digitalize the global economy,” said Samuel Owusu Yeboah, West Africa CTO at CSquared.

“Harnessing our open, programmable and scalable technology, CSquared can get to work closing the country’s digital divide, enabling people to reap the economic and social benefits of our globally interconnected digital economy,” commented Stuart Broome, GM of EMEA sales at Adtran. “From where the Equiano subsea cable lands, CSquared is using our technology to scale its network in record time, connecting the people of Togo to each other, the rest of Africa and the world beyond.”
