The establishment of the telecommunications infrastructure of the submarine fiber optic link began in Kamchatka
OJSC Rostelecom completed the survey and preparatory work on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk as part of the creation of the Sakhalin - Magadan - Kamchatka submarine fiber-optic communication line (FPOLS).
In the 2nd quarter of 2015, horizontally controlled drilling of the main wells will be carried out from the coastal areas in the Ust-Bolsheretsk region, the press service of the Far East Macroregional Branch of OJSC Rostelecom reported. After the opening of navigation, the cable vessel will approach the shores of Kamchatka and lay a deep-sea fiber-optic cable in the direction of Sakhalin. The technology of laying and burying cables into the seabed, developed by Russian specialists, is the most environmentally friendly for the coastal area.
Today the Kamchatka Territory is one of the few regions of Russia where data transfer is organized only using satellite communication channels. This is reflected in the speed and cost of telecommunications services in the region. The new EEPL will allow solving the issues of digital inequality and will give an additional impetus to the socio-economic development of the Far Eastern Federal District.
“The creation of a submarine fiber-optic backbone will significantly increase the range and quality of communication services in Kamchatka. At the same time, the construction and operation of the FPOLS will require corresponding infrastructural changes. We are currently negotiating with OJSC Kamchatskenergo on the modernization of the infrastructure for external energy supply in Ust-Bolsheretsk, near the coastal station, which will ensure the operation of a new communication line, ”says Andrey Sun, director of the Kamchatka branch of OJSC Rostelecom.
Currently, Rostelecom in the Kamchatka Territory has begun work on the preparation of the telecommunications infrastructure for the arrival of the FPOLS, replacing technologically obsolete copper cables with modern optical ones. New intra-zone communication networks are being built using MetroEthernet technology (“optics to the home.”) Rostelecom customers who have switched to MetroEthernet will be able to immediately take advantage of high-speed Internet after the arrival of the FOCL in the region.
The new underwater fiber-optic link will connect the city of Okha on Sakhalin with the Magadan Region and Kamchatka. The fiber-optic cable will be laid along the bottom of the Sea of Okhotsk. The total length of communication lines will be about 2 thousand km, the maximum throughput of the system is 400 Gbit / s for each direction (with the possibility of expanding up to 8 Tbit / s). In 2015, the FPOLS will be technically ready. Commissioning of the facility is scheduled for June 2016.
