Huawei Marine Networks says that it has upgraded Telkom Indonesia's 3rd route submarine cable system utilizing 100 Gbps technology featuring soft decision forward error correction (SD FEC).
The upgrade was implemented over two existing segments comprising of 380km and 360km for new service growth.
Together with the Telkom Dumai Dangas Submarine Cable, a meshed architecture to provide vital restoration and ring protection has been created. In the event of a terrestrial or submarine cable failure, services can be restored and transported within this ring architecture.
The PT Telkom 3rd Route Submarine Cable System is one of three existing cable systems that provides significant capacity for regional growth in this quickly expanding region. The plug and play feature of the advanced OptiX BWS 1600S has enabled Telkom Indonesia to implement 8 new 100G channels, and provides 800 Gbits of total system capacity. With recent advancements in Submarine Line Terminal Equipment R&D it is expected that future upgrades will continue to be implemented over time to meet Telkom Indonesia requirements in this region.
"We are pleased to announce the successful delivery of the PT Telkom 3rd Route Submarine Cable System upgrade with our dedicated partner Huawei Marine," said Network Director of Telkom Indonesia. "This additional capacity on our existing network system will provide us with the ability to meet the growing international service needs within Indonesia."
Further developing its 100G technology featuring SD-FEC since 2011, Huawei Marine has successfully completed 100G field trials on trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific cable systems to improve the undersea transmission technology for both upgrades and new builds.
