Super SEA Cable Networks (SEAX), together with the supplier Huawei International and Huawei Marine Networks, informed that following construction and end-to-end testing, the SEAX-1 cable system has achieved RFPA (ready for provisional acceptance).

SEA Cable Exchange-1 (SEAX-1) links Tanah Merah, Singapore to both Batam, Indonesia and Mersing, Malaysia.

This new, repeaterless undersea communication network should serve the growing demand for e-commerce and internet-based services throughout the ASEAN region.

“Service on SEAX-1 will significantly enhance direct communication between Malaysia and Indonesia and Singapore and lay the foundation for SEAX’s broader plans to provide the ASEAN region with readily-accessible, high-capacity, robust and diverse connectivity options. SEAX’s network plan will help establish the ASEAN region as a broadband corridor in line with the ICT’s ASEAN Cooperation goals, providing an engine of growth for the region,” said Joseph Lim, chief executive officer of SEAX.

Mike Constable, chief executive of Huawei Marine stated: “On behalf of the team at HMN, we are pleased to have partnered with SEAX to achieve this significant milestone. The successful completion of SEAX-1, marks Huawei Marine’s tenth project in Asia Pacific, which illustrates the importance of high-speed connectivity to facilitate cross-border ICT initiatives and the economic development of the ASEAN region.”

Construction of the system was announced in September of 2016 by SEAX, in collaboration with its partners, PT Super Sistem Ultima for Indonesia and SACOFA Sdn Bhd for Malaysia.
