Asia is riding a wave of activity in submarine development. Hong Kong SAR alone will see six new ‘cable landings’ on its shores in the near future. There is also a raft of other cable developments in APAC, coincided with the emergence of new technologies and business models, all of which are facilitating increasing diversity of routes and improved latency.

Subsea Asia connects Subsea leaders, investors and innovators in Asia to facilitate the progression of this burgeoning market. Companies already involved in this launch event include; China Mobile International, Huawei Marine and PCCW Global.  

Sophia Simpson, Product Developer, said: “Hong Kong remains a key territory for us due its excellent infrastructure and key position as a leading hub for the region. That is why we wanted to host Subsea Asia in the same venue as flagship conference, Capacity Asia. In addition, as well as its strategic value, it also provides greater benefits for the local ecosystem.”
