Globe gets Palawan-Coron Submarine Fiber Optic Cable system underway

Lays first-ever fiber optic backbone linking Palawan to the rest of the Philippines, the world

To support the heightening tourism and business activities in the Western portion of the Philippines, Globe has successfully landed a 400-kilometer submarine fiber optic cable in Palawan, which will function as a “superhighway” of telecommunications services between Puerto Princesa City to the main Luzon island and the rest of the country and the world via San Jose, Mindoro, making the company the first telco to fiberize the area. It is also the first-ever fiber optic backbone connecting Palawan to the rest of the Philippines and globally.

The established interconnectivity will be equipped with ultra-long haul dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM), designed to transmit 40 wavelengths at 40-gigabits per second (GBPS) capacity per fiber pair, scalable to 100 GBPS per fiber pair. This translates to 19.2 Terabits per second of capacity, which will provide more than enough bandwidth to serve transmission requirements to enable evolved high speed packet access (HSPA+) and long term evolution or LTE in the area, capable of providing the required bandwidth for subscribers to have high-speed internet surfing, seamless video streaming, fast uploads of photos and videos to social media sites, and a more reliable network for text and voice calls.

According to the Globe Network Technical Group, this major upgrade under the company’s $700 million nationwide modernization initiative will replace existing SDH microwave equipment with fiber optic technology and DWDM system as the main transport backbone of Palawan.
