Angola Cables took a step closer to completion of the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) at an official launch on August 9 in Sangano, Angola. SACS is the first direct link between Africa and South America. The installation of the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) – a subsea cable with 40 Tbps of capacity that will extend more than 6,500 km to Fortaleza, Brazil – began on the Angolan coast in the municipality of Quissama. The SACS system is being constructed by NEC Corporation.
A series of recent submarine cable outages in locations ranging from Somalia to Vietnam and South Africa to Alaska have once again brought the issue of the reliability of these systems to the forefront. Central to the question of reliability is the need for Cable Maintenance Authority services. These services are essential for expediting a solution in the event of an outage, but often the expertise within the organization is limited. OSI’s Cable Maintenance Authority Services can take responsibility for the complete Maintenance Authority scope.
