Peace Cable Project enters into manufacturing stage

DUBAI, October 29, 2018

Peace Cable International Network Co, a subsidiary of Hengtong, revealed that the Peace Cable project has entered into the cable and material manufacturing stage, in conjunction with Huawei Marine Networks Co.

The Peace Cable system spanning 12,000 km will connect Asia, Africa and Europe and is targeted to be ready for service in the first quarter of 2020, said a statement.
Once completed, the high-speed, 200G, 16Tbps per fibre pair Peace Cable system will offer the shortest routes from China to Europe and Africa, dramatically reducing latency and providing a new information expressway for interconnection between the regions, it said.

The system's open access and carrier neutral data centres will have a big impact in the countries connected to the cable system, it added.

This project's cable being used are from Hengtong Marine Cable Systems, whose submarine cables have been applied globally in recent projects such as the FOA project in Chile, the PNG project in Papua New Guinea, Avassa project in Comoros, the NaSCOM project in the Maldives, the Megacable project in Mexico, and the IGW project in Peru.

Sun Xiaohua, chief operating officer of Peace Cable, said: “Peace Cable has created a new business model in the submarine cable industry that builds a bridge for these regions' communications and provides connectivity opportunities to players all along the route by investing in the branches and gaining bandwidth on the trunk efficiently.” – TradeArabia News Service
