PEACE cable system moves forward

Huawei Marine Networks (HMN) and PEACE have advanced the manufacture and integration of the PEACE system.

The system will offer the lowest latency connecting China, Europe and Africa.

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 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 maintained the manufacturing schedule and completion date.

This lays a solid foundation for the marine installation and commercial service of the PEACE system as planned for 2021.

The PEACE system trunk spans 15,000km and features HMN’s Open Cable System Solution, equipped with its 200G WDM technology interfacing with the SDM (Spatial Division Multiplexing) repeater.

Sun Xiaohua, chief operating officer of the PEACE cable system, said: “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.

Ma Yanfeng, vice president of HMN, said, “Delivering the PEACE cable system is another important milestone for HMN, and complements our journey that has seen us successfully deliver over 100 commercial contracts throughout the world. In the face of the current global challenges, we retain our customer-centric focus, to provide advanced technology and robust network solutions, creating value for our customers and driving the world’s digital transformation.”
