The SEACOM cable has been repaired

SEACOM has repaired the second marine cable fault off the coast of Djibouti in the Red Sea.

“Customers are seeing their circuits come up and traffic routing return to normal,” it said.

The second fault was identified while SEACOM was fixing a separate fault on the cable which caused an outage in April. The second fault was north of the first one.

SEACOM said it scheduled the repair over the weekend to minimise any impact to customers’ operations.

“During the course of the repair work, SEACOM provided restoration services for linear transmission customers who had requested restoration.”

“SEACOM’s IP and managed network service platform performed as designed, and did not see any disruption, as services on these platforms were rerouted over SEACOM’s network on the west coast of Africa and via SEACOM’s network to Asia gateways.”
