High-speed broadband submarine cable FLY-LION3 makes landfall in Mayotte
Diversification and security
With landing stations in Kaweni (Mamoudzou) and Moroni, FLY-LION3 provides new diversification solutions for submarine telecommunications infrastructure and provides greater security in the event of outages in the zone.FLY-LION3 will also link to existing cables LION2 and EASSy, offering a direct connection to the east coast of Africa. The FLY-LION3 cable benefits from wavelength division multiplexing technology, which enables each fibre pair to reach a maximum capacity of 20x100Gbps.The cable includes two pairs of fibres making for a total capacity of 4 terabits per second. FLY-LION3 will support the development of high-speed broadband internet in both regions for many years to come.
Powerful networks for every region
- EASSy cable running along the east coast of Africa.
- SAT3-WASC-SAFE connecting Mauritius and Reunion Island to Asia via Malaysia and to Europe via South Africa and the Atlantic coast of Africa.
- LION (Lower Indian Ocean Network) which directly connects Orange Madagascar to the global high-speed broadband network via Reunion Island and Mauritius.
- LION 2, which extends LION to Kenya, provides an initial connection to Mayotte and diversifies and secures the routes to Reunion and Mauritius.
