SEA-ME-WE 5 (Beta 2)

Transworld Associates Private Limited (TWA) is the exclusive participant from Pakistan in the SEA-ME-WE 5 consortium. We announce that TWA has now completed the deployment of SEA-ME-WE 5 at its landing station in Karachi. As the information super highway the SEA-ME-WE 5 will help meet Pakistan’s high speed connectivity demands based on its rapidly expanding IT presence globally.

The state of the art SEA-ME-WE 5 will introduce the ground-breaking concept of end to end connection to open and neutral Points of Presence (PoP’s) both in Europe and Asia. With 24Tbps of capacity SEA-ME-WE 5 will become the intercontinental super highway releasing the pressure on the already highly utilized cables between Europe and Asia.

“It is a BIG success. TWA has leapt further as a Leading Service Provider in the industry.”
