UAE-based operator Etisalat has announced that the Asia-Africa-Europe-1 (AAE-1) undersea cable, which it says is the largest global submarine cable system, will be bringing additional international capacity to UAE connecting Europe and Far East. With the announcement, the submarine cable system is ready and will have the first commercial traffic loaded running into the system. Etisalat is an AAE-1 consortium member and has played a significant role in this submarine cable system with Etisalat's 'Smarthub' becoming a strategic terminal point in the UAE.
