Tokyo, January 14, 2021 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the signing of a contract with the National Submarine Cable Utility Belau Submarine Cable Corporation (BSCC) of the Palau Republic (Palau) for the Palau Cable 2 (PC2) optical submarine cable construction project. PC2, with a total length of approximately 110km, will connect Palau with a large-capacity submarine optical cable that connects Southeast Asia and the U.S. mainland. This cable is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2022.
PC2 adopts the latest optical wavelength multiplexing transmission system of 100 gigabits per second (100Gbps), and as an addition to the first optical submarine cable laid by NEC in Palau in 2017, ensures the redundancy of Palau's network, realizes highly reliable communications, and responds to the increasing demand for communications, thereby contributing to further economic development in Palau.
