Huawei Marine Networks (HMN) is pleased to announce the contract to construct a new submarine cable project, the Maldives Sri Lanka Cable system (MSC). The system will facilitate a direct connection between the Maldives and Sri Lanka increasing regional capacity and network diversity.


MSC is a four fiber pairs system, equipped with HMN high-output titanium housing repeaters to achieve span length over 130km, and will be ready for service by year-end 2020 with the delivery period less than 11 months.


The consortium of investors include Ooredoo Maldives PLC (Ooredoo Maldives), Dhivehi Raajjeyge Gulhun PLC (Dhiraagu) and Dialog Axiata PLC (Dialog).
