SEAX-1 Subsea Link On Course for Q1 2018

Huawei Marine and Super Sea Cable Networks (SEAX) said that offshore and inshore marine surveys covering the full route of its SEAX-1 submarine cable system between the Eastern seaboard of Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia have been completed.

Huawei Marine has started manufacturing of the submarine cable and the SEAX-1 cable system is said to be well on its way as scheduled for ready-for-service date in Q1 2018.

Known as SEA Cable Exchange-1 (SeaX-1), the system comprises a 250km, 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 and will serve operators in the region to meet increasing bandwidth demand.

Mike Constable, CEO of Huawei Marine, said: “We are proud to work on this groundbreaking project which will significantly boost connectivity between these three nations that lie at the heart of South East Asian region. We are confident that our service offerings will ensure the timely and effective deployment of this important regional infrastructure.”

Joseph Lim, CEO of Super Sea Cable Networks, said: “With this announcement, we are one step closer to bringing SEAX-1 new submarine cable system to Asia Pacific. We believe this cable system will enable high-speed and reliable connectivity that are foundational to the realization of smarter cities and smarter futures in this region. The professional and experienced team at Huawei Marine has been integral to the smooth running of this project.”
