The Australia-Singapore Cable (ASC) is a 4,600-km submarine cable system linking Perth, Australia and Singapore, through the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, providing potential for the first 100Gbit/s high-speed connection from Western Australia to South East Asia.
The Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) project was launched by Nextgen Networks and Vocus jointly, based on a 50/50 joint venture. In April 2017, Vocus Communications completed the acquisition of Nextgen Networks to own 100% of the ASC.
The ASC cable system is designed to carry 40Tbps with four fibre pairs.
The ASC cable system has been ready for service since September 2018.
