Case Study

The Challenge

Building a multi-terabit system that connects Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Vietnam and the Philippines

Situation

Tata Communications’ 6,700 km TGN-IA, which was built by SubCom, is a multi-terabit system that connects Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Vietnam and the Philippines. The system provides route diversity throughout the Asia-Pacific region, meeting the ongoing need for increasingly robust international connectivity, while fostering development in the region. 

Solution

Tata Communications and SubCom had worked closely together to strategically design and route the cable system to avoid earthquake and other hazardous areas in the Asia-Pacific region. 

SubCom’s technology, we plug it into the box and it works. When you put the cable in the right place, it sits there for 25 years and it works.
