Telecommunications: Telecom Egypt to deploy a new system to connect Africa and Europe

Telecom Egypt is Egypt’s first integrated telecommunications operator and one of the largest submarine cable operators in the MEA region. It has announced its intention to launch the Hybrid African Ring Path (HARP) by 2023. This is a new submarine system that will demarcate the African continent by following the shape of a harp.

HARP will link coastal and landlocked African countries with Europe. This is thanks to Telecom Egypt’s extensive land and underwater infrastructure. The company will use the system to offer a wide range of capacity solutions. These include, among others, dark fibre and are based on a layer two and layer three architecture that can connect several points of the system together.
