  • Tokyo, August 12, 2013 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) and PT. NEC Indonesia have signed a contract with PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk ("PT Telkom") to construct the Papua Cable System, a high-bandwidth optical submarine cable system that will connect Indonesia's Papua Provinces on the island of New Guinea.

    The Papua Cable System, measuring 2,000 kilometers, is the first optical fiber submarine cable system to connect the Papua provinces of Indonesia and is expected to help bridge the country's digital divide. It is designed to carry transmission speeds of 40Gbps and 100Gbps, aiming to complete PT Telkom's nationwide optical fiber networks in Indonesia.

    "NEC is honored to be selected by PT Telkom as the supplier of the most advanced optical fiber submarine cable system to connect the eastern Indonesian provinces. We are proud that NEC has contributed to PT Telkom's network diversification since first providing the company with an optical fiber submarine cable system in 1991," said Naoki Yoshida, general manager, Submarine Network Division, NEC Corporation.

    The Papua Cable System is slated for completion by the end of 2014.
