Up to now, the military-run telecom giant has invested in five submarine cables, including AAG, IA, APG, AAE-1 and ADC.

The ADC system is expected to create favourable conditions regarding telecom infrastructure, contributing to accelerating the digital transformation process in Vietnam, said a representative of the ADC deployment unit.

According to telecom technology experts, with a large system capacity, the ADC is capable of supporting operations for applications with high bandwidth demands, driven by advances in 5G technology, cloud computing, internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), contributing to expanding the internet connection network in the region.

Once completed and put into operation, the ADC system will have the largest bandwidth capacity in Vietnam, specifically about three times greater than that of the current ASEAN Pacific Gateway (APG) cable.

The Asia Direct Cable (ADC), due for completion in the fourth quarter of 2022, will be one of the undersea cables with the largest data capacities and the highest internet speeds connecting Vietnam with countries across Asia.
