Ace presentation

  1. 1.  17 000 km long  An overall investment of USD 700 million  40G technology proof (5.12 Tbps)  In the end, 23 countries connected, among which :  23 countries with landing points  2 landlocked countries (Mali and Niger) via terrestrial link  7 countries served for the first time by a high bandwidth cable system (Eq. Guinea, Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Mauritania, Sao Tome & Principe and Sierra Leone) ACE Submarine Cable System: Reducing the Digital Divide in Africa
  2. 2. ACE, a key component of the broadband network  ACE countries connected for the first time to a submarine cable no longer have to rely on expensive satellite connections and :  Provides direct access amongst African countries connected by ACE, thereby eliminating transit charges  Reduces international telecommunication costs  Access to the most advanced internet and mobile services (IPTV, mobile TV and other value added services)  For countries already connected to a submarine cable, ACE :  Improves connectivity  Secures traffic  Diversifies routes  The broadband communications development represents an opportunity of economic growth for the whole continent which is among the world’s most rapidly growing economic regions.
  3. 3. … reduces the digital divide in Africa ACE is the first high bandwidth cable system to serve : Mauritania, Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome & Principe. New possibilities to provide ICT solutions, applications and services for socio-economic transformation.
  4. 4.  ACE members aggregating their investment in a landing point share the same access and the same usage rights  This Multiple Access to a landing point allows competitive prices for the sale of capacity and backhaul on ACE in the same station  Providing diversified and extended reach to the rest of the world Monrovia landing station Liberia ACE provides Multiple Access
  5. 5. East Africa, India, Asia SAT3/WAS C/SAFEAnd complete connectivity with SAT3/WASC/SAFE Europe, Asia Atlas Offshore - SMW3/4 - IMeWe Europe USA TAT14 - TGN South America Atlantis2 ACE connectivity with other systems
  6. 6. A very first mission… While under test acceptance, ACE carried the traffic of the 7th Summit of ACP Heads of Government and State, in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, on 13th to 14th December 2012
  7. 7.  Phase I completed  ACE Management Committee now launched Phase II for potential investors  Phase II will extend to South Africa ACE milestones
