Huawei Marine Networks kicks off Senegal Horn of Africa Regional Express Cable

Huawei Marine Networks (HMN) announced the kick-off of Senegal Horn of Africa Regional Express (SHARE) Cable, the first high-capacity direct link from the African continent to the offshore islands of Cape Verde, expected to be completed in Q1, 2021.

The SHARE system is about 720 km and has a design capacity of 16Tbit/s, using HMN’s mature and reliable submarine communications equipment and solution, which connects to Dakar, Senegal, and Praia, Cape Verde.

Relying on Cape Verde’s existing resources of international cables to Europe, South America and other regions, the delivery of the system will introduce new international bandwidth routes to the African continent during the 25-years life cycle, greatly improving the total international export bandwidth of Senegal and even the surrounding regions of West Africa.

The SHARE system will promote the development of the ICT Hub position of Senegal in West Africa and accelerate the development of the digital economy and innovative economy in the region, according to official report.
