Transfer Rate and High-Bandwidth Connectivity

Colt says the company takes responsibility for the day-to-day operations of all newly installed cables in the Channel Tunnel. The infrastructure boasts an impressive transfer rate of several Tbps per fibre pair, empowering customers with access to Colt's 100 Gbps/400 Gbps Colt IQ network.

This high-bandwidth connectivity, supported by low latency, guarantees optimal performance and service reliability throughout the tunnel. The tunnel offers the best path to close a key network loop that runs between London, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam.

Enhanced Security and Compliance

According to the statement, by closing this key network loop, Colt's fibre cable enables efficient and secure data transmission across these major European cities. Compliance with the Channel Tunnel's safety and security regulations ensures the protection of connectivity services. The highly secure environment is impervious to threats such as piracy, ship anchors, commercial fishing, or shipping incidents. Since its installation in 1994, the tunnel has maintained an exemplary safety record.

Transforming the Subterranean Rail Link

Colt states, "The new fiber cable in the tunnel will transform the subterranean rail link between the UK and mainland Europe into a major data route to support the anticipated growth in traffic over the coming years."
