The newest data link from the Philippines to the US and Japan is currently operational thanks to Jupiter cable.

After PLDT opened the system on Friday, the newest international cable system in the Philippines officially went online.

The Jupiter Cable system has been “started up,” according to a statement from PLDT, and is expected to “immensely improve” the nation’s international data capacity and advance digital infrastructure.

The 14,000-km. Jupiter Cable system, according to the statement, is the most recent international gateway linking the Philippines to Japan and the US West Coast straight from PLDT’s cable landing station in Daet, Camarines Norte.

The cable system, according to the statement, will increase PLDT’s capacity for international traffic by three times to 60 Terabits per second. This is especially important because the majority of Internet services and content used by Filipinos originate from US and Japanese servers.

The statement said, “The capacity given by Jupiter is intended to assist position the Philippines as the new digital hub in the Asia-Pacific and market the country to global hyper scalers.

“Hyper scalers” are typically cloud service providers who employ hyper-scale computing, a flexible approach to data processing that can fluctuate swiftly in response to data traffic.

To meet changing demand, this computing technique can be applied in data centers and the cloud.

It claimed that the Jupiter cable will improve the country’s reputation as an investment destination by expanding the nation’s ability to transmit data internationally.

The PLDT chairman Manuel Pangilinan presided over a celebration marking the beginning of the cable system at the Marriott Hotel in Pasay City. Ivan John Uy, Alfredo Pascual, Koshikawa Kazuhiko, MaryKay Loss Carlson, and Koshikawa Kazuhiko, the ambassadors of Japan and the United States, were among the attendees.

The Asia Direct Cable and the APRICOT cable systems, both of which are anticipated to be finished within the next two years, will allow PLDT to expand its current access to 15 international undersea cable networks.
