San Jose, Calif. – May 15, 2024, 8:00 a.m. ET – Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) announced today that Indonesian network operator Super Sistem Group (Super Sistem) has selected Infinera’s GX Series and ICE6 800G coherent solution to power the Super Sistem Batam Singapore (SSBS) Cable System connecting Batam to Singapore. The SSBS is a subsea fiber optic cable system and is part of a broader initiative to bring broadband to underserved communities. The deployment of Infinera’s solution will help to increase access and provide affordable connectivity across Indonesia, including remote islands in the region.

Infinera’s industry-leading ICE6 800G solution will enable Super Sistem to get the most out of its subsea cable by minimizing cost per bit while maximizing spectral efficiency and fiber capacity, resulting in increased capacity, reliability, and reach on its cable system.

“We are committed to Indonesia’s economic development and offering a digital infrastructure that can reliably and affordably deliver connectivity, including to remote regions, which is a high priority for Super Sistem,” said Kelvan Firman, Super Sistem CEO. “Infinera’s industry-leading technology helps us push the boundaries of what is possible with undersea communications, helping to improve communications services within Indonesia.”
