Connection / Converge complets P6B domestic submarine cable

·1 min read

FIBER broadband operator Converge ICT Solutions Inc. completes this month its P6 billion domestic submarine cable project that connects the country’s major islands from Luzon to the Visayas and Mindanao to its national fiber backbone. The 1,800-kilometer subsea cable makes its final landing in Coron, Palawan on Sunday, Oct. 31. Converge interconnected Visayas and Mindanao during Phase 1 of its domestic subsea backbone rollout, first landing in Bogo, Cebu and Cagayan de Oro. Then in Phase 2, re-entered Visayas through Roxas City, Capiz in Panay Island and Mindanao through Buenavista, Agusan del Norte--closing the loops in its network. This is supported by 20 cable landing stations across the archipelago. In terms of capacity, Converge makes use of 48-fiber core optical cables running on 400G and 800G technology, essentially boosting the network’s capacity to push huge amounts of data throughout the length of the cable.
