Seven telecom service providers from the Horn of Africa, East Africa and Middle East have signed a construction and maintenance agreement to build the Djibouti Africa Regional Express (DARE) submarine cable system.

The regional submarine cable system is expected to be completed by May 2018.

The DARE submarine cable system, spanning approximately 5,500 km, will connect Dar Es Salam, Mombasa, Mogadishu, Bossaso, Berbera, Mocha and Djibouti. The system will provide an alternative low latency route to Horn and East Africa.

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has been awarded the supplier contract for the DARE project.

The 100G cable system will deliver more than 60 Tbps of capacity, and each branch is implemented with optical add/drop multiplexing nodes (OADM).

DARE consortium comprises Djibouti Telecom, Africa Marine Express, TeleYemen, Telesom Company, Hormuud Telecom Somalia Inc., Golis Telecom, and Somtel Group.
