NEC completes 100Mbps APAC gateway submarine cable


NEC has "finished construction of the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) Submarine Cable connecting Japan, South Korea, Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore."

The APG Submarine Cable has a total length of approximately 10,900 km, and is owned by a consortium of 13 members - CAT, China Mobile International, China Telecom, China Unicom, Chunghwa Telecom, KT Corporation, LG Uplus, NTT Communications, StarHub, Global Transit, Viettel and VNPT.

The cable features "100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) optical transmission capabilities that deliver a capacity of more than 54Tbps."

Shunichiro Tejima, the executive vice-president and head of the Telecom Carrier Business Unit at NEC Corporation, said: “NEC is honoured to have been selected as the supplier for APG.

“We hope to see our partnership with the consortium further enhanced through NEC’s ability to provide real-time technical support for the operation and maintenance of this advanced submarine cable.”

NEC reminds us all that it has more than 40 years of experience in the submarine cable business and is recognised as one of the world’s top submarine system vendors.

Indeed, NEC has "laid a total of more than 250,000 kilometers of submarine cable – the equivalent of six trips around the earth.’
