Irix has launched a new subsea cable linking Indonesia to Malaysian Borneo and data center in Kuching.
The privately-owned company, previously known as PP Telecommunication, this week announced the launch of the Batam Sarawak Internet Cable System (BaSICS).
“Today, we see the next chapter in our story — the launch of our Batam Sarawak Internet Cable System (BaSICS) and our Tier IV data center at Santubong," said Irix CEO Jonathan Smith
The 700km (434mi) cable runs from a cable landing station in Batam, Indonesia, to Kuching in Sarawak, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. The system consists of six fiber pairs with 8Tbps per pair for a total system capacity of 48Tbps. XL Xiata is the landing partner in Batam.
