UltraMAP welcomes Asia Submarine-Cable Express (ASE).
The ASE cable system is a high capacity cable system constructed in the Asia Pacific Region designed to cater for the exponential growth in bandwidth requirements in the area.
UltraMAP’s adoption of the system is set to become a key part of our ongoing dedication to the protection of the world’s most important surface and subsea assets.
The ASE Project was collaborated on by the region’s leading telecommunications carriers: NTT LJ, PLDT, StarHub and Telekom Malaysia.
The 8,148 Km cable system links mainland Japan with extension to the Okinawan Islands, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
The ASE consortium are particularly focussed on protection:
– The cable is designed to withstand earthquakes and typhoons, particularly in areas such as the Bashi Channel south of Taiwan, where undersea earthquakes have disrupted international communications in the past few years; and now
– Choosing to use UltraMAP’s AssetMonitor and 24/7/365 monitoring services to protect ASE at the vessel busy landing at Hong Kong.
