Cambodia to Get First Direct Undersea Optical Link

Cambodia is getting its first direct connection to the subsea backbone network as Huawei Marine Networks builds a new cable jointly financed by  Telekom Malaysia Berhad, Symphony Communication Public Company Limited and Telcotech Limited.

The Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand (MCT) Submarine Cable System, 1,300 km long, connects Cherating in Malaysia and Rayong in Thailand with a branch connecting Sihanoukville in Cambodia.

Access to neighboring countries such as Laos and Myanmar will be achieved by connected terrestrial networks.

The 100 Gbps network, with a total design capacity exceeding 30 Tbps, will be commissioned and ready for commercial service by the end of 2016.
