Inligo Networks has taken the next step in its plan for an Asian – USA Cable network (ACC-1) by appointing its international sales partner, APTelecom.

APTelecom, an internationally recognized digital infrastructure consulting company, will be Inligo Networks’ international sales partner said the company.

Brian Evans, CEO of Inligo Networks, said: “APTelecom’s reach, and expertise spans a wide range
of global markets which are well aligned to the planned footprint of our network, and we are
pleased to engage their services as our international sales partner. The relationship will support
the onboarding of international capacity buyers and will also assist Inligo Networks in managing
the wide range of existing business opportunities we have for the Asia Connect Cable System”

The Inligo subsea cable network (ACC-1) announced earlier this year, will span just over 17,000 km with initial landing points in 8 key markets, including Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Timor-Leste, Philippines, Guam, Hawaii, and continental USA.

The cable will have up to sixteen fibre pairs with an initial capacity of 256Tbps, and an ultimate design capacity of a minimum 16Tbps per fibre pair. It has been engineered to be highly flexible, incorporating the latest in WSS-ROADM technology to support customers evolving needs.

In addition to the ACC-1 subsea network, Inligo is in parallel building an Australian terrestrial long-haul fibre
network called ‘Unite’
between Melbourne, Adelaide and Darwin which will directly connect with the ACC-1 Cable in Darwin, providing the lowest latency path between Australia and Southeast Asia.

Sean Bergin, President of APTelecom and Chairman of the PTC Board of Governors in Hawaii, said:
“The Asia – US route remains underserved despite recent announcements of other planned
transpacific cables. The unique value proposition offered by Inligo Networks will be well received
by the market”
