It has landing points in:
- Mazara del Vallo, Province of Trapani, Sicily, Italy
- Yeroskipou near Paphos, Cyprus
- Tel Aviv, Israel

It has a design transmission capacity of 20 Gbit/s, starting operation at 5 Gbit/s and a total cable length of 2,600 km. It started operation in March 1999.
The cable consists of a cable with 2 fiber pairs. Each fiber pair has the initial design capacity of 8 wavelengths of around 1550 nm wavelength, which capable to carrying traffic at a data rate of 2.5 Gbit/s each.
The landing points are arranged in a ring, where each 2 landing points have exactly one fiber pair connecting them.
The system today serves mainly as a backup system to the newer and higher-capacity MedNautilus cable system.
