JaKa2LaDeMa submarine cable system upgraded to 100 Gbps

Fujitsu says it has deployed its FLASHWAVE 9500 100-Gbps capable DWDM system to increase the network capacity of Indonesia's Jawa-Kalimantan-Sulawesi-Denpasar-Makassar (JaKa2LaDeMa) submarine cable system. The upgrade boosts the submarine system capacity to 490 Gbps, while leaving room to grow further.

Fujitsu says it has deployed its FLASHWAVE 9500 100-Gbps capable DWDM system to increase the network capacity of Indonesia's Jawa-Kalimantan-Sulawesi-Denpasar-Makassar (JaKa2LaDeMa) submarine cable system. The upgrade boosts the submarine network's capacity to 490 Gbps, while leaving room to grow further.

Fujitsu and Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH, a major cable manufacturer in Germany, installed the JaKa2LaDeMa undersea cable system in 2010 for PT. Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk (see “Fujitsu, NSW complete Indonesian JaKa2LaDeMa submarine fiber-optic network”). The 1800-km submarine cable system is the first to link the five Indonesian islands of Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Java, Bali, and Lombok.

The upgrade comes as IP traffic in Indonesia is expected to grow by 42% between 2012 and 2017, the second-highest growth rate in the world according to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index. To keep pace, the new capacity level of 490 Gbps can be upgraded by a factor of five in the future, Fujitsu asserts.

In addition to the FLASHWAVE 9500, Fujitsu also has supplied its NETSMART 1500 monitoring system.
