[Cable Network News] KT Submarine, the submarine cable subsidiary of South Korean telecommunications company KT Corp, revealed that it has won a 9 billion won (7.9 million US dollars) contract to build part of the JUPITER cable system for a consortium led by SubCom.
According to the contract, KT Submarine will deploy part of the cable system between Japan and the Philippines. The total length of the line is about 5,600 kilometers, and construction is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2020.
This cross-border submarine cable system is the JUPITER project jointly initiated by PCCW Global, Facebook, Amazon, NTTC Communications, PLDT and other consortiums. It aims to connect Maruyama and Shima cities in Japan with Los Angeles, with a total length of 14,000 kilometers.
Among them, the Korean telecommunications company KT is responsible for the construction of the section connecting Japan and the Philippines, with a total length of about 5,600 kilometers.
In fact, according to the original plan, construction of the cable section is planned to start in the third quarter of 2019. However, due to tendering and the epidemic, construction was delayed until the third quarter of 2020.
According to reports, the JUPITER submarine cable will use ROADM to provide a capacity of more than 60Tbps. ROADM uses wavelength selective switch (WSS) technology to provide customers with more diverse connections and enhanced reliability, as well as to optimize the connection with the US West Coast data center.
