    The SEA-ME-WE 5 subsea fiber optic cable linking Southeast Asia to Europe via the Middle East has been completed on time, the consortium behind the project announced.

    Built with a design capacity of 24 Terabits per second, the 20,000km cable system uses 100Gbps technology from the get-go to deliver fast access to consumers and businesses in Southeast Asia countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Myanmar.

    SEA-ME-WE 5 (South East Asia - Middle East - Western Europe 5 Submarine Cable System) is expected to meet the projected quadrupling in demand for bandwidth between Europe and Asia in the next five years, offering the lowest latency for Internet traffic between the two regions. It will provide a sevenfold capacity increase along the corridor connecting Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Western Europe.

    “The completion of the SE-ME-WE 5 project is a landmark system upgrade for all data users worldwide. This system facilitates a new age of digital transformation and innovation, catalyzing greater economic activities, trade and growth across three continents,” said Linette Lee, who chairs the consortium management committee behind SEA-ME-WE 5.

    Construction of the cable network began in September 2014. The project is backed by a consortium comprising 18 global telecommunications players including Singtel, Telekom Malaysia, and Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin).

    A statement from the consortium noted that SEA-ME-WE 5’s main endpoints are not Cable Landing Stations (CLS) like in most such projects, but carrier-neutral Points-of-Presence (PoPs).

    SEA-ME-WE 5 was plugged into the Tuas landing station in Singapore early last year.

    In December 2016 Freddi Huang, the head of network engineering and operations at Telin Singapore, told DatacenterDynamics that the recently launched Telin-3 data center will be linked up to SEA-ME-WE 5. We were able to confirm that Singtel’s newly-opened DC West data center will also be linked to the cable system.

    Elsewhere, SEA-ME-WE 5 stops off at the Indonesian city of Dumai on Sumatra, which is where the upcoming Indonesia Global Gateway Cable System (IGG) - which links up multiple cities across the Indonesian archipelago - will land.

    Os mapas do SEA-ME-WE 5 e dos cabos submarinos na Africa sugerem fantásticas oportunidades culturais e comerciais em intercâmbios regionais e continentais usando infraestrutura que consumiu vultosos investimentos de paises com poucos recursos. Porém, na prática o que se tem é uma "rede de assinatura" que beneficia players globais e destrói negócios locais. Não é surpresa alguma que esses players tenham passado a dominar o noticiário sobre construção de novos cabos submarinos, maravilhados com as facilidades para faturar com anúncios ordinários e serviços questionáveis parasitando infraestuturas locais sob o aplauso de cartórios. Que não se imagine que esses cabos permitem o surgimento de novos gigantes do fracasso, porque 1) as empresas locais estão sujeitas aos impostos e leis regionais 2) não existe interconexão entre os paises 3) barreiras intransponiveis de culturas, idiomas, ódios e ressentimentos entre paises. Enfim, para a empresa local não existe facilidade de telecomunicação, não existe mercado, está obrigada a pagar impostos e cumprir leis, e, claro, sempre pode ser extorquida pelo governo e seus prepostos, sempre alegremente dispostos a dar mais vantagens aos avantajados parasitas. Em contraposição, paises que se concentraram em desenvolver o mercado local e ignoraram os cabos submarinos e seus parasitas apresentam resultados incomparavelmente melhores. Por exemplo, nos últimos dias foi anunciada a construção do maior data center da Tailândia, país onde servidores podem ser conectados em 10Gbps unmetered por tostões para atender a população. A mesma opção da Indonésia (população 250 milhões), Vietnam, etc. Enquanto isso, a Amazon constrói data centers em Marseille para despejar conteúdo no cabo, sem gerar empregos ou pagar impostos nos paises "contemplados". Festança também em Londres, claro. A chegada do SEA-ME-WE 5 pode ser motivo de festejos para os parasitas de olho nos mercados asiáticos mas não é uma noticia 100% positiva para os "beneficiados" como se pode pensar. Como lembra Paulo Maluf, especialista em negócios obscuros, existiam excelentes razões para as estradas de ferro brasileiras terem adotado as mais diferentes bitolas.

    New transatlantic cable "Brexit-1" to connect NYC and Marseille, bypassing UK

    João Marques Lima
    3 January, 2017

    A new transatlantic cable which avoids the UK has been announced between Europe and the US as the “chaos around Brexit” grows.

    Named Brexit-1, the cable will link Marseille, France, to New York, crossing the Strait of Gibraltar.

    The project was announced by telecoms expert and entrepreneurs Sunil Tagare, who first developed the concept of the a fiber-optic link around the globe (FLAG) back in 1989. Owned by the Global Cloud Xchange, today FLAG extends to 28,000 Km.

    Tagare announced the project on LinkedIn and explained that Brexit-1 will “be a submarine cable connecting more than a dozen cables landing in Marseilles from the Middle East, India and Asia to New York bypassing the United Kingdom”.

    The entrepreneur claims the cable will be safer and more reliable than other trans-European solutions as it is a direct cable without points-of-presence (POP). Tagare has also said the cable will be the lowest latency infrastructure deployed between Marseille and New York.

    Talking about Brexit, Tagare said: “With the chaos around Brexit, it is virtually impossible to know how it will shake out over the next few years. The best bet right now, is to avoid UK completely and go directly to New York.”

    Tagare’s announcement around the Brexit-1 cable was met with mixed reactions from industry professionals.

    Reacting to the announcement on LinkedIn, industry professionals questioned the higher reliability of Brexit-1 over other terrestrial routes between Marseille and cable landing stations on the Atlantic.

    As for Brexit, experts highlighted that most major cables announced recently have also avoided the UK, however, not due to Brexit but due to the lack of content providers’ data centres in the country.

    Peter Jamieson, who serves as chairman of the European Subsea Cable Association and principal engineer for the Virgin Media core fiber optic network, commented on a personal level: “It is not just this cable, every future Trans-Atlantic cable recently installed or planned within the next five years (except Hibernia Express, which goes to the UK but also has a branch to Eire) is avoiding the UK.

    “But it has nothing to do with Brexit, the new systems are being driven by the content guys and they do not have any data centres in the U.K. Brexit will not impact any future builds to the UK. The UK is still well served by the infrastructure installed during the .com bubble. although it is getting a bit long in the tooth now.

    “London will continue as global financial centre after Brexit, and new infrastructure will be built when it is demanded. Indeed Brexit should be seen as an opportunity to de-shackle the UK from Euro legislation to encourage more content players , data centre builders etc to base themselves in the UK and drive new cable builds to the UK.”

    Elsewhere, in addition to the European-American cabling system, Tagare also announced a second cable that will connect Tuas in Singapore to Mumbai, India.

    Named Sing-India-Sing, the cable will land in an open cable station in Mumbai where the Reference Interconnection Offer (RIO) charges will be zero and any carrier will be able to access the CLS without any prejudice.

    RIO is an offer document setting out matters relating to the price, and terms and conditions, under which a carrier permits the interconnection of another carrier to its network.

    According to Tagare, such regulations enable carriers to charge “atrocious access charges”.

    The cable will be connected to Open India, an internet exchange with several local carriers.

    Tagare said the cable will only sell full fiber pairs and that customers will be able to manage their own equipment and upgrade as and when they want.

    “It is quite possible you may not need a full fiber pair to India right now but if the price you are paying for a full fiber pair is equivalent to a handful of 100G circuits today, what difference does it make? The minimum speed per fiber pair will be 10 Tbps,” he said.

    Similarly to Brexit-1, Sing-India-Sing will not have any POPs

    Tagare said: “I am a huge supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of a Digital India and my goal is very simple — to make India one of the most important hubs of bandwidth in the world.

    “Once the Open India CLS initiative starts working, I can contemplate several new cables landing in that station — free from the arcane RIO regulations.

    “The time has come for an Open India solution to the access issues. Every Indian carrier as well as foreign companies will benefit significantly.

    “The Government of India is fully supportive of this initiative which will bring down the RIO costs to Zero.”
