Huawei Marine Networks announced that it has completed marine installation of the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS) and achieved a major step towards the system being ready for service in Q4.
The NCSCS is Cameroon’s first submarine cable, with all investment provided solely by the Cameroon government.
Spanning approximately 1,100 km, marine installation of the NCSCS system began in mid-June to provide a direct link between Kribi in Cameroon with Lagos in Nigeria.
The NCSCS also incorporates branching units for future connection to Escravos and Qua Iboe in Nigeria’s Southeast region.
