Tech entrepreneur Bevan Slattery has started a new Australian company called SUB.CO that will shortly commence building the only submarine cable directly connecting continental Australia and the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

SUB.CO announced on Thursday that its Oman Australia Cable (OAC) project has entered Contract In Force status (CIF) with its final system connection expected to be completed in December, 2021, and delivering a new international subsea cable system that will directly connect Muscat, Oman to Perth, Australia.

Bevan Slattery, founder of SUB.CO said, “I am delighted that OAC is now CIF and importantly we have been able to secure the required manufacturing and marine installation assets with SubCom to allow for a targeted 2021 completion date”.

“With a series of other major submarine cable projects looking to enter CIF status in the next quarter, this is a tremendous coup for the project and reduces project implementation risks and funding costs significantly.”

David Coughlan, CEO of SUB.COM (subcom.com) noted: “Once deployed, OAC will enable high-capacity, low-latency transmission and open a much-sought route between Australia and EMEA”

“SubCom is very pleased to be moving forward with this project and we are confident in our ability to implement what will be a powerful and reliable system on behalf of SUB.CO.”

SUB.COM says that once completed, the OAC will be the only submarine cable directly connecting continental Australia and EMEA, “providing the first secure, diverse, express and lowest latency route between the two continents”.

The OAC cable system design is a three fibre pair system with an option to upgrade to four fibre pairs based upon final demand and will span approximately 9,700 km, with branching units designed to potentially extend the system into Salalah, Oman and Djibouti in the future.
