APTelecom Appointed as SACS - South Atlantic Cable System (Angola - Brazil Cable) Pre-Sales Manager for International Network Development

NEW YORK and LUANDA, Angola, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- APTelecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, today announced that it has been engaged by Angola Cables to serve as overall International Sales Manager in the creation of a new submarine cable system SACS, joining Africa and South America. The cable will contain four fibre pairs, each capable of transmitting 100 wavelengths and initial speeds of 40 Gbps, with provision to upgrade to 100 Gbps as technologies are proven up. The SACS cable is planned to go live in 2014.


As part of the overall program management, APTelecom will provide Angola Cables with specialists in the various commercial aspects of system design, procurement and the sales strategy behind leveraging the capabilities and reach of their network.

The SACS is totally innovative and unique to the subsea cable industry as it provides unique secure low latency routing avoiding current bottleneck locations routing via Africa and Asia to the United States and Europe. This new route will provide the global carrier community, content players, and ultra-low latency sensitive customers security through a diverse route via the Southern Hemisphere.

"We are honored to be a part of such an important project in one of the world's fastest-growing telecom markets and working within the SACS Cable team to bring their plans to fruition," said John Hibbard, Board Member of APTelecom and President of the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) (Emeritus). "We are pleased to play a major role in the development of this new connection of southern Africa to South America affording a roll-out of the applications needed to meet carriers' voracious demands for bandwidth over the next decade." Both APTelecom and Angola Cables will be announcing updates in the coming weeks and months as their program gets underway.
