Jan 31 (Reuters) - KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Malaysia's Telekom and Japan's NTT Comunications will jointly invest in an undersea cable worth $500 million to expand the network capacity from Malaysia to Japan, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
Japan's NEC Corp has been appointed the main contractor for the construction of the 8,000 kilometre-long terabit-capacity cable, which will branch into Singapore, the Philippines and Hong Kong, the source said.
Telekom is expected to formally announce the launch of the project later this afternoon.
NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced plans to launch the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE), a 40-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) undersea cable, in June 2012. The ASE eventually will connect major business hubs across East Asia via some 7,200 kilometers of cable, and boast a total carrying capacity exceeding 15 terabits per second.
The ASE is being constructed by NTT Com, Malaysia-based Telekom Malaysia, Philippines-based PLDT and Singapore-based StarHub. Total cost of construction is estimated at approximately 430 million USD (about 36 billion yen).
When it initially starts operating, the ASE will serve Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. A separate route to Hong Kong will be added in December 2012. Connections to Mainland China and additional Southeast Asian countries are expected to be launched in collaboration with major carriers in these markets.
Incorporating the latest 40 Gbps optical technology, the ASE will boost the capacity and strengthen the redundancy of NTT Com's Asian cable networks, paving the way for enhanced global network services that will meet the region's increasing needs for global traffic, low network latency and reliability. The ASE also has a capability to incorporate 100 Gbps optical technology in the future.
The ASE will be specially designed to withstand earthquakes and typhoons, particularly in areas such as the Bashi Channel south of Taiwan, where underse earthquakes have disrupted international communications in the past few years.
cable capacity : 15TBps data
2012 aim : 40GBps internet transmission data rate
future aim : 100GBps internet transmission data rate
