JANUARY 20, 2009 -- Fujitsu Ltd. (search for Fujitsu) and partner Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH (NSW) of Germany have won a turnkey contract from PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk. (PT TELKOM) worth more than $100 million to install a submarine optic-fiber cable system for the Indonesian islands Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Java, Bali, and Lombok.
The "JaKa2LaDeMa" ring will provide the first direct, high-bandwidth optic-fiber submarine cable system for these Indonesian islands, and is scheduled to be completed in the January-March quarter of 2010.
JaKa2LaDeMa will deliver the capacity to provide upgradeable transmission facilities that support Internet, e-commerce, video, data, and voice services.
Fujitsu will provide terminal equipment, repeaters, branching units, system integration, and associated services for this project. The repeaters will be integrated into the repeatered cables provided by NSW, which will also provide such services as surveying, marine installation, and civil works.
"Fujitsu is extremely pleased to make a significant contribution to the construction of network infrastructure in Indonesia, which is one of the fastest growing markets in the world," commented Gensei Katano, group vice president of the Photonic Systems Group, Submarine Networks at Fujitsu. "This win is attributable to our robust network portfolio as well as our strong commitment to Indonesia. We will continue to work closely with NSW for the successful delivery of state-of-the-art submarine cable system to PT TELKOM."
"We are very proud that PT TELKOM has awarded us this project," said Rudolf Stahl, managing director at NSW. "This new order reiterates the confidence our customers have in our capability and expertise in providing high-end quality products and solutions. It also confirms the effectiveness of the Fujitsu/NSW team."
NSWwill be using its MINISUB repeatered and unrepeatered cable. In accordance with the customer requirements, the cable will be delivered in the versions lightweight, lightweight-protected, single-armored, and double-armored.
