The 5,400-kilometer cable system, dubbed Djibouti, Africa Regional Express-1 (DARE1) will link Djibouti, Mogadishu, Mombasa and Bosaso, and will deliver a capacity of up to 30 terabits per second.
It is as a result of a partnership between Djibouti Telecom, Telecom Kenya, SubCom and Somtel, a telecommunication company that operates in the Horn of Africa.
The giant companies have been in negotiation over the last couple of years configuring and designing the cable routes.
In addition to the installation of the trunk, the installation of the two branch legs to the system’s four landing stations has also started.
