1.28 Tb capacity submarine cabling commences

Sea-Me-We-4 that links France to Singapore with Mumbai, India, as a landing point for VSNL is being deployed. The cables both from the Singapore side and the France side will land at Mumbai at VSNL's cable landing station in Prabhadevi, Mumbai.

Laying the SMW-4 submarine cable system with a designed capacity of 1.28 Terabits with two fibre pairs using DWDM technology is scheduled to be completed during the fourth quarter of this year. Upon commissioning, this cable system will play a key role in facilitating traffic to the Far East, Europe, and the United States both via the Atlantic and Pacific route out of India.

VSNL is undertaking the responsibility of a network administrator and has provided its Network Operating Centre (NOC) for the project.
