Interconnecting Arab States National R&E Networks
• Regional connectivity of Arab NREN’s is essential to future growth
• An optimal and most cost efficient topology rests on two or three regional
hubs congruent with the location of the most/best populated cable landing
stations and facilities .
• Fujairah, Alexandria and Jeddah are the main hub locations to consider.

New Submarine cables entering service 2011-2014
Recent wave of build-out in Mediterranean and Middle-East is over.
Optimal network topologies have to be planned accordingly.

Incremental lit capacity per region
Gradual transition from 10 to 100Gbps technology could multiply the
amount of lit capacity to maybe five times the 2012 levels at the end
of the 2013-2018 period without many major new cable builds.
