The South East Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 5 (SEA-ME-WE 5) submarine cable, to be operational in the second half of 2016, landed at the submarine cable Station of la Seyne-sur-Mer, South of France.

This new 20,000 km-long fiber optic cable will connect France to Singapore, serving 17 countries: Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, France, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Myanmar, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Republic of Djibouti , Singapore, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Yemen.

Orange Marine, a 100% subsidiary of Orange Group manages the installation of the SEA- ME- WE 5 in the Mediterranean, with four shore ends: France, Egypt, Italy and Turkey.

In France, the SEA-ME- WE 5 will be connected to Interxion Data Center in Marseille by terrestrial cable established from the Toulon station.

The arrival at Toulon and the extension by terrestrial cable to the Data Center Interxion in Marseille strengthens the role of the region for international trade to the Middle East, Asia and Africa/Indian Ocean, Orange Marine stated.
