The Challenge

Delivering a privately owned subsea cable to Indonesia


When first-time submarine cable builder Matrix Networks decided to deliver a privately owned subsea cable to Indonesia, the company faced a host of challenges – not the least of which was its ultimate goal to provide robust, high-bandwidth connectivity to a vastly underserved and rapidly growing Indonesian market.


TE’s Subsea Cable System

Prior to the activation of the Matrix system, Indonesia had a closed telecommunication economy. However, Matrix, with the help of SubCom and other partners, lead the way in opening the region, delivering affordable communications to residents and boosting business capabilities. 

People are saying, ‘We know your system was built by SubCom; it’s the best.’ That recognition in the marketplace was of paramount importance.
