IN OPERATION since march 2023

The most advanced and robust route between Italy and Greece.

IONIAN is the new Submarine System that connects Crotone, Italy, with Preveza, Greece. It is extended with two terrestrial fibre rings to Milan and Rome in Italy and Athens and Thessaloniki in Greece, offering a new high capacity, reliable, international fibre route.

IONIAN offers wholesale capacity, optical spectrum and dark fibre to telecommunication operators and content providers.

The system is in operation since March 31st 2023.


Connecting Peninsular Spain with the Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza with three different submarine routes, Balalink is the most reliable system serving the Balearics. It is complemented with extensive backhaul fiber networks extending the landing stations to reach the main cities.

IslaLink has deployed a terrestrial fiber ring in Mallorca offering a protected point to multipoint service that gives access to the networks of local operators.

The 300km terrestrial fiber ring connects Palma with Manacor, Muro, Sa Pobla, Inca, Sóller, Consell, Sineu, Petra, Villafranca, Montuiri, Santa Ponça and the technology park Parcbit.

IONIAN is a new submarine and terrestrial fiber optic system connecting Athens and Thessaloniki to Milan and Rome.

It addresses the need for very large wholesale capacity (wavelength, spectrum and dark fiber) between Western Europe and Greece through a new system on a completely diverse route.
