NEC to Build Indonesia Global Gateway Submarine Cable

NEC Corporation has signed a contract with PT. Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk (Telkom) to develop the Indonesia Global Gateway cable system (IGG).

The IGG is an optical submarine cable system that will connect the islands of Sumatra, Batam, Jawa, Bali, Kalimantan and Sulawesi with Singapore.

The IGG is a 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) x 80 wavelengths (wl) x 4 fiber pairs (fp) optical fiber submarine cable system, measuring approximately 5,300 kilometers.

Once IGG is completed in early-2018, this cable system will not only enhance connectivity among major cities of Indonesia, but it is designed to provide direct connectivity between two international submarine cables, one from Europe landing in Dumai, and the other from the west coast of the U.S. terminating in Manado, the company said.

“NEC is honored to be selected once again by Telkom as the supplier of an optical fiber submarine cable system, the advanced 100Gb/s IGG system, providing connectivity among nine Indonesian cities and Singapore, and linking two international submarine cables at Dumai and Manado,” said Toru Kawauchi, general manager, Submarine Network Division, NEC Corporation.
