SEA-US Subsea Cable Set for Completion in Q2 2017

The Southeast Asia- US (SEA-US) cable system said it has closed in on completion of the installation of its undersea fiber optic cable network by the second quarter of 2017.

Namely, the Hermosa Beach, California shore-end was successfully connected. In addition, on January 12, 2017, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted the SEA-US cable landing license.

By the end of January 2017 the construction of California’s cable landing station will be completed.

In February 2017 the installation vessel will arrive in Honolulu, Hawaii, after completing its main-lay construction between California and Hawaii.

The $250 million SEA-US Cable System is being constructed by NEC Corporation. When completed, the system will deliver an initial design capacity of 20 Terabit per second (Tb/s) capacity, using NEC 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) technology.

The SEA-US Cable System investors consist of the following consortium members: Globe Telecom (Manila, Philippines), GTA (Tamuning, Guam), GTI (Los Angeles, California), Hawaiian Telcom (Honolulu, Hawaii), RTI (San Francisco, California), Telin (Jakarta, Indonesia) and Telkom USA (Los Angeles, California).
