Ooredoo Maldives has signed an agreement to invest in the PEACE Cable, that is a direct international submarine cable system that will increase the resiliency, diversity, and redundancy of international data capacity in order to provide their clients with uninterrupted services. With this cable in place, it will help boost the digital infrastructure of Maldives.
The 'PEACE' submarine cable is scheduled to arrive in Kulhudhufushi City in the early months of 2023. The project will also support and improve network readiness in order to provide groundbreaking 5G services that will connect Maldivians to new technologies, innovation, and socioeconomic development across the country.
Ooredoo Maldives carefully selected Kulhudhufushi as the landing station for this undersea cable in order to diversify ISP traffic and promote locations outside of the capital in order to propel a digitally powered nation with limitless potential and prospects.
The new international underwater cable will span 3000 km to the east and 6000 km to the west, connecting Maldives to Singapore in the east and Marseille in France in the west via a trunk route that will also connect more than 15 additional nations, including East Africa.
Ooredoo Maldives is investing in this ground-breaking submarine connection to reduce latency and increase capacity between Singapore and Europe. In keeping with their objective of creating a genuinely Digital Maldives, it will also bring diversity to foreign traffic and enhance 5G possibilities.
Expressing his enthusiasm over the new agreement, the CEO & Managing Director of Ooredoo Maldives, Najib Khan promises a promising future development in telecommunication industry in the Maldives.
