Australian ISP Vocus Communications has switched on its new Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) ahead of schedule to compensate for a major service disruption on the Perth-Jakarta length of the Sea-Me-We 3 subsea cable.

The company has implemented an emergency cutover of services that were running through the SMW 3 onto the new ASC.

According to Vocus group CTO Simon Smith, while the company is still in the final stages of testing the ASC ahead of its official ready-for-service date of September 14, the cable is ready to stand in for the damaged SMW 3.

“After consulting our team conducting final testing, we are confident that ASC is ready to provide reliable and effective services to mitigate the effect of the SMW-3 outage,” he said.
