WIOCC is reporting via its blog that the EASSy submarine cable has moved into the testing stage.  This stage consists of the following phases:

Phase 1 – Stand-alone testing: tests all the equipment in each of the landing stations.

Phase 2: Segment commissioning: Alcatel-Lucent’s engineers test every segment of the cable individually. A complementary set of test are then conducted by WIOCC-EASSy’s engineers.

Phase 3: Network commissioning: tests the entire system end-to-end.
