Djibouti Telecom, TE SubCom Start DARE Subsea Cable Contract

A supply contract between Djibouti Telecom and TE SubCom for the Djibouti Africa Regional Express (DARE) submarine cable system has come into force.

The 5,400km DARE submarine cable system will connect Djibouti (Djibouti) and Mombasa (Kenya), with branches to three coastal cities in Somalia, respectively Mogadishu, Berbera, and Bosaso, providing an alternative route to the Horn of Africa and East Africa.

DARE submarine cable system, configured as a two fiber pair trunk, will deliver up to 30 Tbps of capacity.

With high-capacity and low-latency, the DARE system will offer an alternative route to East Africa and the Horn of Africa, easing congestion across existing systems, promoting competition and supplying much needed capacity to a rapidly expanding region,” said M Mohamed Assoweh Bouh, Djibouti Telecom general manager.

“Our selection as supplier demonstrates our commitment to the regional short-haul marketplace and we are very pleased to partner on the DARE project to deliver this system that will stimulate growth in the region by providing robust, reliable and low-latency connectivity,” said Sanjay Chowbey, president, TE SubCom.

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