In the Asia Pacific region, Teleglobe also is a founding investor in the China-US cable network, due for completion at the end of 1999, and holds interests in 21 undersea cable systems, including the APC, APCN, ASEAN, Australia-Japan, China-Japan, Flag, GPT, H-J-K, Japan-US, NPC, PACRIM, PC-1, R-J-K, SEA-ME-WE 2, SEA-ME-WE 3, SAT-3/WASC/SAFE, TASMAN-2, TPC-3, TPC-4, TPC-5 and T-V-H cable systems, giving Teleglobe one of the region's most extensive fiber networks.
The Asian Pacific region is one of the fastest growing telecommunications markets in the world and our investment in APCN reflects the importance this region will continue to play in world telecom in the next few years," said Seth Blumenfeld, President of MCI International.
Each of the links in APCN has a design capacity of two fiber pair (one service pair and one restoration pair), each with a capacity of 60,480 basic circuits capable of handling more than 240,000 simultaneous voice conversations, (or any combination of voice, data, and video).
APCN will be the first fiber optic cable system in the Asia Pacific region to use state of the art optical amplification, SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) technology offering instantaneous, fiber-on-fiber restoration via the restoration fiber pair, in the event of a failure on the service pair.

MCI will use the Thailand-Vietnam-Hong Kong cable as an extension of the TPC-5 and APCN cable networks, which are due to be on line in 1995 and 1997 respectively.
The Australia-Japan cable is designed to interconnect at different route points with other submarine cables in the region, notably APCN, SEA-ME-WE 3, China-US and Japan-US, to provide available bandwidth between Australia, North Asia and across the so-called "Northern Global Highway" to North America.
In the Asia Pacific region, Teleglobe holds interests in nearly 25 undersea cable systems, including the APC, APCN, APCN-2, ASEAN, Australia-Japan, China-Japan, China-US, Flag, GPT, H-J-K, Japan-US, NPC, PACRIM, PC-1, R-J-K, SEA-ME-WE 2, SEA-ME-WE 3, SAT-3/WASC/SAFE, TASMAN-2, TPC-3, TPC-4, TPC-5 and T-V-H cable systems, giving Teleglobe one of the region's most extensive fiber networks.
