EllaLink: 72Tbps cable system on track to be RFS in 2020

EllaLink Group CEO Philippe Dumont talks to Capacity: Business Intelligence for the Global Carrier Industry magazine with a two-page spread on EllaLinks 72Tbps cable system.

I start our meeting by asking Dumont where he’s based. He jokingly responds: “I’m based on the plane.” This is simply because of the extensive travelling he undertakes to visit key locations along the 9,300km cable system, the company’s headquarters in Ireland, and to be with his family in France. It’s been a very busy year-and-a-half for the former Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks (ASN) president and CEO. He first joined the project in January 2018 initially as a consultant, to support the preliminary due diligence that was being completed by the Marguerite Infrastructure fund.
