EATONTOWN, N.J. -- The AAE-1 Consortium, owners of the Asia-Africa-Europe-1 submarine cable spanning approximately 25,000 km connecting Asia, Middle East, Africa and Europe; and TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in undersea communications technology, today announced that the contract for the majority of segments of the AAE-1 system has come into force.

AAE-1 will link Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe with low latency, high capacity transmission. Each trunk fiber-pair in AAE-1 segments supplied by TE SubCom has a cross-sectional capacity of minimum 80 x 100Gbps and each branch is implemented with optical add/drop multiplexing (OADM) nodes containing TE SubCom’s industry leading OADM wavelength re-use technology.

The unique cable system will contribute significantly to the volume growth in the involved countries and will eventually connect more than 40% of the world’s population. When completed, the AAE-1 system will connect landings in Hong Kong SAR, (China), Vietnam, Cambodia, Kuala Kurau (Malaysia), Satun (Thailand), Mumbai (India), Karachi (Pakistan), Al Bustan (Oman), Fujairah (UAE), Doha (Qatar), Aden (Yemen), Djibouti, Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), Zafarana and Abu Talat (Egypt), Chania (Greece), Marseille (France), plus other landings under development.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
