Submarine Cable Network, Malaysia Outlook (Part XI)

Continued… Part XI – Cable Landing Stations/Sites in Malaysia

In my last post, I furnished a Facts & Figures table in relation to 20 active submarine cables networks that landed in Malaysia. The table includes the figures of 37 landing sites (cable landing stations) in all 14 states of Malaysia.

Today’s post onward, I’ll elaborate on the list of the landing sites (cable landing stations) in Malaysia. I’ll first start with the northern region of Peninsula Malaysia that consists of 3 states as follows:

State of Perlis

  • Number of landing site (cable landing station) is 1
    • Landing site (cable landing station) is Kuala Perlis
      • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 3

2. SAFE (11428km route length)

  • 2nd landing site (cable landing station) is Pulau Langkawi
    • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 1

1. Malaysian Domestic (Palau Langkawi – Kuala Perlis) (34km route length)

State of Pulau Pinang (Penang)

  • Number of landing site (cable landing station) is 5
    • 1st landing site (cable landing station) is Juru, Seberang Prai Tengah
      • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 1

1. Malaysia Power Cable (28km route length)

  • 2nd landing site (cable landing station) is Permatang Damar Laut
    • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 1

1. Malaysian Festoon (Permatang Damar Laut – Seberang Prai) (10km route length)

  • 3rd landing site (cable landing station) is Pulau Pinang (Penang)
    • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 4

1. Malaysia Domestic (Penang – Seberang Jaya) (5km route length)
2. Malaysia Power Cable (28km route length)
3. Malaysia Power Cable (28km route length)
4. SEA-ME-WE-3 (Segment S4) (7115km route length)

  • 4th landing site (cable landing station) is Seberang Jaya
    • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 1

1. Malaysia Domestic (Penang – Seberang Jaya) (5km route length)

  • 5th landing site (cable landing station) is Seberang Prai
    • Number of submarine cable network landed here is 2

Continued… Part X – Cable Landing Stations/Sites in Malaysia

In my last post, I discussed on 20 submarine cable networks for telecommunication (internet), telecommunication (data), telecommunication (cellular) and power/electrical that landed on Malaysia shores and lands.

Today I’ll continue further on some interesting facts and figures with respect to those 20 submarine cables networks that landed in Malaysia. Check out the following interesting Facts & Figures table:

In my previous post on July 1, 2010 under Submarine Cable Network, Malaysia Outlook (Part II) for the topic of Telekom Malaysia Response, below is the excerpt of Telekom Malaysia’s (TM’s) response:

TM today has 5 cable landing stations and multiple border gateways, its own private cable to Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei as well as a direct link with Africa through South Africa Far East Cable System (SAFE) / South Atlantic Cable System 3 (SAT 3).

The above mentioned 5 cable landing stations and submarine cable networks belong to TM that forms the main internet gateways for Malaysia. TM is also a party to the following international submarine cable networks:

  • AAG
  • APCN
  • APCN2
  • BRCS
  • DMCS
  • FEA a.k.a FLAG FEA
  • MT
  • SAFE
  • SEA-ME-WE-2 a.k.a SMW2
  • SEA-ME-WE-3 a.k.a SMW3
  • SEA-ME-WE-4 a.k.a SMW4

Besides telecommunication submarine cable network that mainly use to carry internet bandwidth and telecommunication data, there are also power/electrical submarine cable network that landed at cable landing stations/sites.

Other than the above mentioned submarine cable networks, there are many other submarine cable networks that landed at various cable landing stations/sites located along the Malaysia’s coastal areas.

Below is the list of submarine cable networks in Malaysia to date with its respective length. The list consists of submarine cable networks for telecommunication (internet), telecommunication (data), telecommunication (cellular) and power/electrical.

  1. APC – 7440km
  2. APCN (Section 1 & 2) – 9000km
  3. APCN (Section 3) – 3000km
  4. APCN 2 – 19153km
  5. ASEAN (Kuantan – Kota Kinabalu) – 1500km
  6. BMP – 1518km
  7. FLAG – 27300km
  8. Malaysia Domestic – multiple circuits/hops – 4183km
  9. Malaysian Domestic – CELCOM – 30km
  10. Malaysia Power Cable – 28km
  11. MT – 1276km
  12. Malaysia Thailand East – 43km
