Telecom Egypt extends network reach through SEA-ME-WE 6 cable
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 22 - 02 - 2022

Telecom Egypt (TE) announced on Tuesday it is extending its reach through the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 6 (SEA-ME-WE 6) subsea cable, as part of the cable's consortium. The new cable is set to cross Egypt over the company's distinctive infrastructure through trans-Egypt's new geo diversified crossings and landing points from the other cables in the SEA-ME-WE family.
With the growing demand for connectivity coupled with the dynamic digital transformations that are triggering higher levels of data transfers from Asia to Europe, SEA-ME-WE 6 provides an additional layer of diversity and resilience for the high traffic density route between Asia and Europe, strengthening the overall network of each consortium partner.
"The added flexibility means service providers in the consortium can rapidly scale capacity, protect traffic from faults, and lower total cost of network ownership. The system is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2025." TE said in a statement.
The construction has started on a 19,200 km-long submarine cable system, connecting multiple countries between Singapore and France. The SEA-ME-WE 6 system has more fibre pairs and over double the capacities of existing SEA-ME-WE cables over its overall path. It is set to offer one of the lowest latencies available between Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Western Europe, transferring over 100 terabytes per second, the equivalent of 40,000 high-definition videos each second.
The SEA-ME-WE 6 consortium involves Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company, Bharti Airtel Ltd. (India) Dhiraagu (Maldives), Djibouti Telecom, Mobily (Saudi Arabia), Orange (France), Singtel (Singapore), Sri Lanka Telecom, Telecom Egypt, Telekom Malaysia, Telin (Indonesia), and Trans World Associates (Pakistan).
"Our participation in SEA-ME-WE-6 is another key milestone towards our goal to diversify our submarine infrastructure and improve our global reach. We are honoured to work alongside renowned global partners to contribute to improving user experience and serve customer demands for premium connectivity services in cable–landing countries." Adel Hamed, chief executive of TE, said.
"We are also pleased to provide the new cable that serves as the shortest and most reliable link between Asia, Africa, and Europe as it connects the Red and Mediterranean Seas. For years, we have succeeded in revamping our international infrastructure and increasing the geodiversity of our assets to keep pace with the rising global demand for uninterrupted high bandwidth services."
