Huawei Marine has been selected by Super Sea Cable Networks to deploy 0, a subsea cable system connecting the Eastern seaboard of Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
Known as SEA Cable Exchange-1 (SeaX-1), the system comprises a 250 km, 24-fibre pair undersea fiber optic cable that will connect Mersing (Malaysia), Changi (Singapore), and Batam (Indonesia).
Once commissioned, the system will be fully owned and operated by Super Sea Cable Networks. The system will be targeted to complete by the end of 2017.
Mike Constable, CEO of Huawei Marine said, “We are delighted to be selected for this project which will provide robust connectivity to these three regional data hubs.”
Joseph Lim, CEO of Super Sea Cable Networks said: “SeaX-1 passes through one of the busiest region in the Asia Pacific region, where bandwidth demands are increasing exponentially. We believe this new submarine cable system will relieve bandwidth pressures on existing infrastructure and continue to provide this region with high-speed, reliable connectivity that will fast-track its growth.”
