April 15, 2020
Huawei Marine Networks (HMN) and PEACE jointly announced that the manufacture and integration of the PEACE system is now in the advanced stages. The system will offer the lowest latency connecting China, Europe and Africa, facilitating fast, high-capacity bandwidth on this new information superhighway.
Throughout 2020, the delivery of the PEACE system has faced numerous challenges due to the effects and global impact of COVID-19. However, HMN’s experienced manufacturing and integration teams, working closely in real time with the offshore marine survey team located onboard vessels in the Indian Ocean, Arabian and Red Seas, have successfully maintained the manufacturing schedule and completion date.
This lays a solid foundation for the subsequent marine installation and commercial service of the PEACE system as planned for 2021.
The PEACE system trunk spans 15,000km and features HMN’s latest Open Cable System Solution, equipped with HMN’s industry-leading 200G WDM technology interfacing with HMN’s new generation SDM (Spatial Division Multiplexing) repeater. PEACE will provide customers with robust, high-performance intercontinental communications services for the next two decades.
Sun Xiaohua, Chief Operating Officer of the PEACE cable system, stressed that “We are pleased to announce the marine survey of the PEACE cable system has been 90% completed. With the orderly development of the system wet plant manufacturing and integration in an advanced phase, the PEACE cable system has taken a further solid step forward.”
