The new Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 5 (SEA-ME-WE 5) submarine cable system is a matchless, PoP to PoP, multi-regional data superhighway.

It is a technological breakthrough which marks a global communications milestone when it launches by the second half of 2016.

Designed with the latest upgradable 100Gbps technology enabling initial system capacity of 24 Tbps, it will provide the lowest latency, further enhancing the diversity and resilience to the heavily loaded Asia to Europe route.

The new SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable system relies on a strong commitment, proven financial stability and recognized technical know-how from its consortium members, enjoying the highest level of flexibility in utilizing their capacity entitlement over the system.
