Malaysia, Indonesia telcos to build 400km submarine cable

KUALA LUMPUR, February 11 (Xinhua) — Malaysia’s telecommunication giant Telekom Malaysia (TM) will jointly construct a 400-kilometer submarine telecommunication cable linking Malaysia and Indonesia with its Indonesian partners.

An agreement on the joint project was signed in Kuala Lumpur on Friday between TM and its Indonesian partners, namely PT XL Axiata and PT Mora Telematika.

The cable will have two stretches with one connecting the Malacca State in the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia and Dumai, a city on the Sumatra Island of Indonesia.

The other one will connect Dumai and Batam, an island in the Riau Islands Province of Indonesia.

Named the Batam-Dumai-Malacca (BDM) Cable System, the new infrastructure consists of two fibre pairs, designed to provide 1. 28 trillion bytes per second (Tbps) adopting the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

Once completed, it will also be able to provide upgradable, future-proof transmission facilities.

Rozaimy Rahman, executive vice president of TM’s subsidiary TM Global, told reporters at the signing ceremony that the project benefitted not only the consortium members, but also countries and regions connecting to each other directly serviced by the system.

He said that currently, there were two telecommunication cables connecting Indonesia and Malaysia.

The BDM Cable System would be an alternative if there was any breakdown in the existing cable systems, Rozaimy said, adding that it would help promote Malaysia as a transit hub for internet traffic.

XL Axiata is a mobile telecommunication operator, while Mora Telematika is a network and internet service provider.
