Australian operator Vocus Communications has confirmed that its Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) has been put into early service following a major service disruption on the Sea-Me-We3 (SMW-3) submarine cable between Perth and Singapore. To minimise customer impacts due to the SMW-3 outage, Vocus has implemented an emergency cutover of services that were running through SMW-3 onto the Vocus ASC, which is in its final testing phase.
