In line with its status as the game changer in telecommunications services provision in Nigeria, @globacomlimited has again taken another step towards the transformation of the ICT landscape in Nigeria with the construction of a multi-billion naira optic fibre submarine cable.
Tagged Glo 2, the road map for the project was unveiled at a contract-signing ceremony between the national operator, Globacom , and global telecom solutions vendors, Huawei at Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Tuesday.
According to Globacom’s Regional Director, Technical, Mr Sanjib Roy:
“The new submarine cable will be approximately 850 kilometres long and will be integrated to Globacom’s existing terrestrial Backbone Network to provide additional service redundancy”, especially in Abuja and other parts of the country.
#Glo2 will have the capacity of 12 Terabytes per second and will provide ultra-high speed connection to oil platforms and communities to empower data coverage and support Enterprise market growth in this part of Nigeria.”
Also speaking, the Managing Director of Huawei Nigeria, Mr Li Beifang, said that
“Huawei is proud to partner with Globacom to build a revolutionary submarine cable using innovative and leading technology. We believe the cable would bring a new era of digitalization to Nigerian economy”.
Glo2 complements the Glo 1 international submarine cable built by Globacom in 2010.
It is the only international submarine cable in Nigeria managed end to end, from Lagos to London, by one Company and currently provides sufficient bandwidth for the West Africa sub-region.
