Systems integrator and ISP Computer Data Networks (CDN) has announced that the high-speed fibre optic network connecting Iraq to the rest of the world is now fully operational.

The network, which links Baghdad to Abdally on the border with Kuwait, is already providing high speed internet services to customers in the country, and CDN aims to provide service across southern Iraq, including Baghdad, Basra and the areas bordering Iran and Kuwait.

The company says that the fibre optic network should boost connectivity for enterprises and ISPs in Iraq, by providing high speed connectivity to meet growing business demand.

CDN was awarded the contract to operate, maintain and market the southern portion of the DWDM fibre carrier network in November 2009, by the Iraqi Telecommunications and Post Company. CDN already has ISP operations in three provinces of Iraq, for both Wireless and xDSL Services, and it also has a contract to run the three main Internet Exchanges which handle ISP Interconnections and exchange of Internet traffic between Iraq and the rest of the world.
