Toronto, ON and Buffalo, NY /PRNewswire/ - Crosslake Fibre announces today that it has contracted IT International Telecom Canada Inc. as the cable installer for its Lake Ontario submarine cable project. The 58km submarine fibre-optic cable system across Lake Ontario is part of a 131km system connecting Toronto, Ontario and Buffalo, New York with critical telecommunications infrastructure.
"The Crosslake Fibre cable system will provide much-needed physical redundancy and updated infrastructure along this critical route," states Mike Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of Crosslake Fibre. "We are pleased to engage such an experienced firm as IT International Telecom, that has installed dozens of subsea cables worldwide, to install and bury the cable with a specialized cable installation vessel."
John Graham, Co-President of IT International Telecom notes, "We are excited to be installing the Crosslake Fibre cable system and believe that the C.S. IT Intrepid vessel is the ideal solution to accomplish a build with such a high percentage of burial." The C.S. IT Intrepid will transport and install the 96 fibre pair cable in July and August of this year.
The cable installation contract between Crosslake Fibre and IT International Telecom is contract in force. The construction of the shore ends is currently in progress and the terrestrial backhaul from the shore ends to downtown Toronto and Buffalo is in development.
