Transworld Associates Private Limited (TWA) – the exclusive participant from Pakistan in the SEA-ME-WE 5 consortium has announced that it has now completed the deployment of SEA-ME-WE 5 at its landing station in Karachi. As the information superhighway, the SEA-ME-WE 5 will help meet Pakistan’s high-speed connectivity demands based on its rapidly expanding IT presence globally.
The state of the art SEA-ME-WE 5 will introduce the ground-breaking concept of the end-to-end connection to open and neutral Points of Presence (PoP’s) both in Europe and Asia. With 24Tbps of capacity SEA-ME-WE, 5 will become the intercontinental super highway releasing the pressure on the already highly utilized cables between Europe and Asia.
Talking about its benefits, Mr. Kamran Malik, President Transworld said “With SEA-ME-WE 5, TWA will firstly improve its reach in the regions we operate in. Secondly, we will be able to deliver resilient and redundant network solutions with advantages such as flexibility and reliability for our customers. Thirdly, the system will offer a much-improved quality of service experience for our customers with the lowest latency connectivity solutions.”
Transworld at present operates the TW1 submarine cable and is the only private operator in Pakistan. TWA continues its investments with the vision of building Pakistan’s digital future on fiber networks and playing an important role in linking Pakistan to the world.
After the introduction of 3G/4G in Pakistan, an exponential increase in data traffic has been observed and this trend is seen to continue. Internet growth continues to rise as well. SEA-ME-WE 5 will be a key connectivity route and will help in Pakistan’s financial growth.
