NTT extends the Asia Submarine-cable Express

It will be Cambodia's first submarine optical fibre cable

Cambodia will lay its first submarine optical fibre cable after NTT Com announced it will extend the Asia Submarine-cable Express to provide high-capacity infrastructure for multinationals operating in the Mekong region.

The extension of the 7800km cable is based on an agreement that NTT Com has reached with with Chuan Wei (Cambodia) Co. Ltd.

Under the agreement, NTT Com will lay Cambodia’s first submarine optical fiber cable.

The ASE will provide highly reliable, high-capacity communications connecting Cambodia and other countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion with major locations elsewhere in Asia, including Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.

The arrival of the ASE also will enable NTT Com to provide local customers with even higher quality Internet network services.

The company continues to upgrade and expand its global submarine-cable infrastructure, including through introduction of a 100 Gbps optical transmission system incorporating digital coherent technology, according to a company statement.

In addition, the company is expanding its number of ASE connection points and Nexcenter global datacentre in Southeast Asia to provide high-quality network, datacentre and Cloud services in end-to-end one-stop solutions.

The ASE submarine cable is routed away from the Bashi Channel and the south coast of Taiwan, areas that frequently experience earthquakes and typhoons.

It also takes the shortest route of any submarine cable connecting Japan to Hong Kong and Singapore.

Global companies are increasingly investing in Cambodia to take advantage of government incentives for foreign investment, according to NTT.

Located in the middle of the Southern Economic Corridor stretching from Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, Cambodia is experiencing rapid economic growth.
