The meeting, held in Manila, was participated by representatives from China Mobile International Limited, China Unicom Global, Converge ICT Solutions, PPTEL SEA H2X, and  HMN Technologies.

Following the discussions, the SEA-H2X consortium is optimistic that the 5,000-kilometer submarine cable system will be online by 2024. SEA-H2X will connect Hong Kong SAR China, Hainan China, Philippines, Thailand, East Malaysia, and Singapore.

The SEA-H2X submarine cable system will consist of 8-fiber pairs between Hong Kong SAR and Singapore, with a design capacity of 160 terabits per second to meet the growing bandwidth requirement in the region.

Converge will have 2-fiber pairs on the Hong Kong SAR – Singapore segment of SEA-H2X. The System is targeted to be ready-for-service in 2024 which will help businesses and consumers benefit from increasing digital ties.

 “In Converge, we have a dream and that is to make the Philippines a digital transit hub in Asia. The SEA-H2X project is one step towards that dream where we hope to create a more vibrant industry that can position businesses for success, provide employment, and continually improve the lives of Filipinos over time,” Jesus Romero, Converge chief operations officer, said.
