The successful deployment of the Mauritius Telecom T3 subsea cable is set to enhance connectivity between Mauritius and South Africa.

The subsea cable, deployed at pan-African technology group Liquid Intelligent Technologies’ landing facility in Amanzimtoti, in Durban, South Africa, comprises four 13.5 Tb/s fibre pairs, with a design capacity of 54 Tb/s for the whole system.

It is expected to bolster the stability and redundancy around the connectivity that exists between the two countries, said Liquid Intelligent Technologies South Africa CEO Deon Geyser.

“Liquid South Africa is bringing a critical increase in the availability of high-speed and reliable Internet connectivity for economies in the Indian Ocean islands to South Africa, leveraging on Liquid's 110 000 km of fibre backbone in Africa.”

Through partnerships in multiple sea cables, including Equiano, Metiss, EASSy and the T3 cable system, Liquid is enabling cost-effective, low-latency Internet access for South Africans and businesses to serve their business-critical connectivity needs.

“In addition to bringing reliable Internet connectivity to South Africa, this partnership will also have a positive impact by stimulating economic growth and contributing to the overall development of the community by creating job opportunities,” he concludes.
