Angola Cables proclaimed that it has marked an agreement with framework supplier NEC Corporation to assemble the world’s first submarine cable system over the South Atlantic Ocean.

The South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) will unite Angola and Brazil, and will interface whatever is left of Africa with Latin America surprisingly.

The cable framework will be constructed from Sangano arriving station in Angola to Fortaleza in Brazil.

The framework will then be connected to the Cable of the Americas (COTA). SACS and COTA will then take advantage of the current West Africa Cable System (WACS) which connects Africa to Europe.

SACS will offer a 4-fiber-pair link with a starting outline limit of 40tbps (100gbps x 100 wavelengths x 4 fiber-sets).

The total investment amount for SACS is estimated to be USD $160 million.

As per Angola Cables CEO Antonio Nunes the organization’s mission is to change Angola into one of the real telecom centers in Africa.
