Project Description

AITT – Tenerife telecommunications ring

The AITT Telecommunications ring is a fibre-optic loop embracing the island of Tenerife. The Institute of Telecommunications Technology of Tenerife (IT3) is responsible for managing and operating commercially the AITT, the first phase of which connects the island’s capital with the D-ALiX datacentre, across 12 municipalities. IT3 is a neutral telecommunications operator, established by the Tenerife island council within the context of the ALiX project.

The project’s second phase will close the loop around the entire island, including all 35 municipalities. The facilities, managed and operated by IT3, are available on a neutral, transparent and non-discriminatory basis to all telecoms operators wishing to offer their services in Tenerife.
