NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT (NYSE:NTT) Group, announced today that the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) will be extended to Cambodia to provide reliable, high-capacity communication infrastructure for the increasing number of multinational companies operating in the Mekong region.
The extension is based on an agreement that NTT Com has reached with Chuan Wei (Cambodia) Co. Ltd. Under the agreement, NTT Com will lay Cambodia’s first submarine optical fiber cable.
The ASE will provide highly reliable, high-capacity communications connecting Cambodia and other countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion with major locations elsewhere in Asia, including Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. The arrival of the ASE also will enable NTT Com to provide local customers with even higher quality Internet network services.
NTT Com continues to upgrade and expand its global submarine-cable infrastructure, including through introduction of a 100 Gbps optical transmission system incorporating digital coherent technology. In addition, the company is expanding its number of ASE connection points and Nexcenter global data centers in Southeast Asia to provide high-quality network, data center and cloud services in end-to-end one-stop solutions.
The ASE submarine cable is routed away from the Bashi Channel and the south coast of Taiwan, areas that frequently experience earthquakes and typhoons. The ASE also takes the shortest route of any submarine cable connecting Japan to Hong Kong and Singapore.
ASE Fast Facts
|Total length:||Approx. 7,800 km|
|Design capacity:||15 Tbps or above|
|Landing stations:||Japan, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong|
|Participants:||NTT Com, Telekom Malaysia, PLDT and StarHub|
Digital coherent is the latest transmission technology for improving spectral efficiency through multi-level modulation, including phase modulation and polarization multiplexing. It greatly enhances receiver sensitivity by combining coherent detection and digital signal processing.
Global companies are increasingly investing in Cambodia to take advantage of government incentives for foreign investment. Located in the middle of the Southern Economic Corridor stretching from Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, Cambodia is experiencing rapid economic growth. In turn, the need for reliable, high-capacity networks is rising to meet the increasing communication demands of locally based multinational companies.

In past @ThingsExpo presentations, Joseph di Paolantonio has explored how various Internet of Things (IoT) and data management and analytics (DMA) solution spaces will come together as sensor analytics ecosystems. This year, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Joseph di Paolantonio from DataArchon, will be adding the numerous Transportation areas, from autonomous vehicles to “Uber for containers.” While IoT data in any one area of Transportation will have a huge impact in that area, combining sensor...
