NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, announced today that it has launched the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG), a high-bandwidth optical submarine cable network connecting regions and countries in the Asia.

NTT Com has implemented the new service in partnership with major telecommunication carriers in each country.

The APG will increase data transmission capacity in the Asian region, improve connectivity between various regions and countries and improve redundancy by means of diverse routing.

With a total length of 10,400 km, the APG network leverages 100Gbps optical transmission capabilities and digital coherent technology to deliver a capacity of more than 54 Tbps, the highest of any network in Asia.

The cable routing avoids areas prone to earthquakes and typhoons, and has connectivity points in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. See Attachment 1 for more information.

NTT Com has established two diverse landing points, one in the East and the other in the West of Japan for the APG and Pacific Crossing-1 (PC-1) submarine cable which connects between Japan and the U.S. having diverse route such as north and south routes.

The company has also implemented diverse landing points in Hong Kong and Singapore for the APG and for the Asia Submarine-Cable Express (ASE), which was launched in August 2012.

NTT Com thereby operates totally diverse cable routes between the US West Coast and key economic hubs in Asia regions, offering even greater reliability and redundancy in its global network.
