PEACE Cable International Network and Huawei Marine Networks announced that the PEACE Cable project has entered into the cable and material manufacturing stage.

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.

Once complete, the high-speed, 200G, 16Tbps per fiber 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. The system’s open access and carrier neutral data centers will have a big impact in the countries connected to the cable system.

PEACE Cable has signed cooperation agreements to land the network in Somalia and Seychelles to boost local network service quality in both nations.

Sun Xiaohua, Chief Operating officer, PEACE Cable
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 in a more efficient way.

Zhang Hongxiang, Project Delivery Director, Huawei Marine
We are glad to work with this creative network, which is open to connect along the route on any of the potential points, however with the commerce of cable manufacture, such extensions are dependent on the plan of work. Players who get on board soon will secure better flexibility on this network.
