HÀ NỘI — CMC Telecom on Thursday in Hà Nội officially inaugurated its Cross Việt Nam Cable System (CVCS), which is the only system in Việt Nam directly connecting the Southeast-Asia grid.
With a total length of more than 2,500km, the cable system passes through 19 provinces and cities in the country from the northern Lạng Sơn Province to the southern Tây Ninh Province. The system has a total investment of VNĐ500 billion.
Thank to the system, Việt Nam has access to the Southeast Asian region, connecting Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand. The system would be connected to most sea cable routes in the region such as APG, AAE-1, UNITY and FASTER.
The CVCS has been built using the latest technology, with a bandwidth capacity of up to 9.6Tbps. It would help Vietnamese firms experience a continuous, stable and more completed information and technology infrastructure.
On the same day, CMC Telecom also inaugurated its third Data Centre with a total area of 1,200sq.m.
This has been the first and only data centre in Việt Nam applying the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is a compulsory information safety standard for storage, transmission and processing companies for card payment managed by five leading international organisations, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB.
