PEACE Cable International Network Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of HENGTONG Group, and Huawei Marine Networks Co., Ltd has announce 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.

This project’s cable had been awarded to HENGTONG Marine, a subsidiary of HENGTONG Group as well, whose submarine cables have been applied globally in recent years, including in the FOA project in Chile, the PNG project in Papua New Guinea, Avassa project in Comoros, the NaSCOM project in the Maldives, the Megacable project in Mexico and the IGW project in Peru, etc.
