HCMC – An undersea cable system—the Asia Direct Cable (ADC)—that is set to span multiple countries including Vietnam with a bandwidth of over 140 Tbps, three times higher than the current cable APG, is slated for completion in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The ADC is designed to have many pairs of fiber optics and transmit big data at breakneck speeds across Vietnam, China, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, the local media reported.

Once in place, the 9,400-kilometer international submarine cable will become the cable line with the highest bandwidth in Vietnam.

ADC is expected to support advanced technologies such as 5G, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things-related services, contributing to expanding the country’s connection network with other countries in the region.

Doan Dai Phong, deputy general director of Viettel Business Solutions, told Thanh Nien Online that as an investor in the construction of ADC, Viettel is enhancing its efforts to connect Vietnam to the world via various cable systems.

The ADC will play a key role in fostering the development of advanced technologies in the country.

It is the fifth undersea cable Viettel has invested in over the past few years, after AAE-1, TGN-IA and AAG in Vung Tau City and APG in Danang City. Viettel will also build a cable landing station for ADC in Quy Nhon City.
