Singapore's Vocus has recently received an order for a submarine cable system to build a cable system between the Tiwi Islands connecting Darwin and the Northern Territory of Australia.
It is reported that the project will receive a grant of US$8.5 million from the Northern Territory Government, which will be built, owned and operated by Vocus (BOT model).filling compound for optical fiber loose tube
According to reports, Vocus will build a new 60-kilometer submarine cable between the Northwest Cable System (NWCS) branch and the Tiwi Islands.It will be the first time the communities on the Melville and Bassett islands receive “reliable, high-capacity and reliable fiber-to-the-world link”.water blocking glass yarn
Currently, NBN's satellite Sky Muster is one of the service providers in the region. Mobile and landline phones are currently connected to Darwin via high-speed digital radio links. In February, ABC reported that after the damage to the Telstra Tower, Tiwi Island residents had limited access to the Internet and communications.glass yarn for optical fiber cable
NWCS was transferred to Vocus through the acquisition of Nextgen Networks in 2016. Company CEO Kevin Russell said: “The Tiwi Cable is based on our extensive network infrastructure investment activities in the Northern Territory. The new fiber optic connection provides a historic opportunity to replace the existing sub-optimal Microwave links to the mainland, eliminating capacity constraints and improving telecommunications services in the Tiwi Islands."aluminum overhead conductor grease
