The new 1,100-km submarine network, linking Songkhla (Thailand), Batam (Indonesia) and Changi (Singapore), can provide customers with enhanced transmission of international broadband traffic, using NEC's submarine repeatered and repeaterless DWDM technologies with an equipped capacity of 30-Gbits/sec upgradeable up to 320 Gbits/sec, capable of handling traffic for about 3,840,000 telephone circuits.

Mr. Toru Hamanaka, general manager of Submarine Networks Division, NEC Corp., said, "We are proud that we have successfully supplied our DWDM technologies to TIS Cable Network on schedule. This achievement positions NEC as a premier submarine network supplier in the region. NEC is committed to enhancing its service offering with the highest level of expertise for our customers."

In the submarine cable industry, NEC has accumulated a rich experience over the past years as a system supplier/integrator, supplying a number of major submarine cable systems, including China-US, Japan-US, APCN2, EAC2 and AJC. In addition, the company had recently been awarded a supply contract for Alaska United Fiber System (AUFS).
