Huawei Marine, Unicom and Camtel to Build SAIL Cable System

Huawei Marine contracted with China Unicom and Camtel to construct the South Atlantic Inter Link (SAIL), which marks the official start of the SAIL implementation phase.

Huawei rotating CEO Guo Ping, CEO of China Unicom Lu Yimin, and Camtel general manager David Nkote attended the signing ceremony.

Backed by investment from China Unicom and Camtel, the SAIL system links Cameroon and Brazil, a length of 6000 kilometers. Adopting Huawei Marine’s 100G technology, the system has 4 fiber pairs and a design capacity of 32Tbit/s. SAIL is the first direct access cable that connects Africa and South America.

Lu Yimin, CEO of China Unicom said: “China has strategic partnerships with Africa and South America. SAIL not only provides high-quality international telecommunication services to countries in these two continent, but also better serves Chinese companies to develop their business in these region.”

Camtel general manager, David Nkote, said: “It is a great pleasure to partner with China Unicom and Huawei Marine on building the SAIL cable system. When it completed, it will provide new international connectivity, to facilitate bandwidth demand between Africa and South America and support the booming economies in the two continents.”
