On the other hand, TTI will also be able to further enhance its SEA-ME-WE 5capacity between Turkey and Europe.

This partnership marks a very important milestone as it signifies the start of a long-term cooperation between TTI and Telin to better serve the Indonesian government bodies, Indonesian enterprises and business communities in Europe and the Middle East Region. It will also enhance the IP connectivity performance between South Asian countries and local internet exchanges in Europe and the Middle East region.

Witnessing this agreement signing, Mr. Abdus Somad Arief, CEO of Wholesale and International Business of Telkom Group, believes “This collaboration will benefit both corporations, and we expect more successful relationship between Telin and TTI in the future.”

“We are delighted to have entered into this SEA-ME-WE 5 Capacity Exchange Agreement to explore mutually beneficial business opportunities for our two companies. This agreement demonstrates the unique advantages of TTI’s SEA-ME-WE 5 solution to cover large number of European, Balkans and Caucasus countries with lower latency and better network performance. It also highlights the cooperation opportunities between TTI and Asian operators like Telin with vast network coverage” – explains Mr. Mehmet Toros, Chairman of the TTI Group Management Board.

The SEA-ME-WE 5 subsea cable system, spanning over 17 countries from Southeast Asia to Western Europe, is a technological breakthrough. It is designed with a capacity of 24 Terabits per second on 3-fibre pairs, fully capable of accommodating the future demand of data from other bandwidth-intensive applications such as enterprise data exchange, internet TV and online gaming.

The SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable’s advanced 100Gbps technology is expected to meet the quadrupling of bandwidth demand between Europe and Asia, providing the lowest latency and further enhancing the network diversity and resilience to the heavily loaded Asia to Europe route. In contrast with other submarine cable systems, the SEA-ME-WE 5’s main endpoints are carrier-neutral/open Points-of-Presence (PoPs) and not just Cable Landing Stations (CLS).
