The APG submarine cable, with a total length of approximately 10,900 km, is owned by a consortium of 13 members and features 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) optical transmission capabilities that deliver a capacity of more than 54Tbps.

The consortium members include CAT, China Mobile International, China Telecom, China Unicom, Chunghwa Telecom, KT Corporation, LG Uplus, NTT Communications, StarHub, Global Transit, Viettel and VNPT.

“NEC is honored to have been selected as the supplier for APG,” said Shunichiro Tejima, executive vice president and head of the Telecom Carrier Business Unit at NEC Corporation. “We hope to see our partnership with the consortium further enhanced through NEC’s ability to provide real-time technical support for the operation and maintenance of this advanced submarine cable.”
