Omantel Telecommunications Company (Omantel) plans to interconnect two submarine cable systems to connect Asia and Africa.

According to the media reports, the company will interconnect the Gulf of Africa (G2A) and Silk Road Gateway –1 (SRG -1) cable systems.

G2A links Oman and Somalia with onward connection to Ethiopia which is set to extend to South Africa, Mogadishu and Kenya.

The second cable system, the SRG -1, links Oman with Pakistan, with connection to Afganistan, China, Turkmenistan, Iran and Tajikistan.

Omantel said that it has deployed these cable systems to create new ultra-low latency route options for customers.

“We are the only provider in the world that is able to offer rapid access between Asia and Africa via geographically diverse routes. The development and interconnection of G2A and SRG-1 demonstrates our commitment to delivering ultra-low latency networking in unique and challenging markets. We are supporting the growth of trade between China and Africa with new diversity and high performance networks,” said Talal Said al Mamari, CEO of Omantel.
