The Express Southern Hemisphere subsea cables connection will pave the way for a global digital highway stretching from South America to Asia, via Africa
Angola Cables and TM Global have obtained a proof of concept certification for a proposed subsea link between Asia and Latin America, taking a direct route through the southern hemisphere.
Currently, the majority of traffic between the regions is directed through longer routes in the northern hemisphere. The proposed route for the Express Southern Hemisphere cable will deliver far lower latency levels between the two locations while simultaneously boosting capacity.
The new express route will connect Asia to South America while bypassing Middle East and Europe, providing a more direct route. Angola Cables and TM Global say that the new route will act as a catalyst for the creation of more effective digital ecosystems within the southern hemisphere.
