TE SubCom to Build ICN2 Cable Linking Vanuatu to Solomon Islands

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, is set for construction of the ICN2 submarine cable project for Interchange Limited, a Vanuatu-based consortium.

The cable will connect Port Vila, Vanuatu and Luganville, Vanuatu to Honiara, Solomon Islands.

The 1,632km cable will provide initial 200G high-capacity access to several landing sites utilizing SL14-A1 cables and Ciena Submarine Line Terminating Equipment (SLTE).

The system is expected to be ready for service in Q4 2019.

This submarine cable link is an important part of connectivity for this area of the world,” said Sanjay Chowbey, president of TE SubCom. “We are pleased to work with Interchange Limited and apply our expertise and regional knowledge to this project.

“Interchange Limited is committed to improved ICT infrastructure to communities we serve throughout the Melanesian region. The ICN2 cable project truly supports our mission,” said Simon Fletcher, CEO of Interchange Limited. “ICN2 is the first CIF submarine cable to the Solomon Islands. With the planned future systems in the region, we feel confident they will be complementary and serve to build a redundant and reliable network. This should provide some confidence to regional investors and data center partners.”
