Huawei Marine has announced that it will build the Cameroon-Brazil Cable System (CBCS) between Kribi, Cameroon, and Fortaleza, Brazil. The project is invested by CamTel and China Unicom, with Telefonica supporting the initiative by providing its international facilities and experience. The 6,000 km cable will use Huawei Marine's 100 Gbps technology and have an initial capacity of 32 Tbps with four fibre pairs. It is due to come into service at the end of 2017. The Chinese company will deploy its titanium, six-fibre pair submarine Repeater 1660.
