- Tram Ho
A representative of a service provider (ISP) said that the APG fiber optic cable problem occurred early this morning (December 26), on the S6 segment near Hong Kong (China). Vietnamese carriers have not been informed about the cause and plan to handle and fix this problem.
Before that, at the end of November, another fiber optic route, AAE-1, also had a problem, causing all traffic on the route to be lost. The cause was determined to be a source detection error on the S1H segment, the fault location near Aguilar station, located in the waters of Hong Kong (China). The problem is not fixed yet.
APG fiber optic cable had a problem at dawn on December 26.
Along with AAE-1 and APG, the AAG undersea fiber optic cable is also failing. Previously, in June 2022, this cable route had problems connecting to Singapore and Hong Kong (China). Up to now, the direction to Hong Kong (China) has been fixed, but the connection direction to Singapore has not been completely restored.
Due to the same problem of three fiber optic lines, Vietnam’s Internet going internationally will be affected, including accessing popular services such as Gmail, Google, Facebook, and YouTube.
APG fiber optic cable has a length of about 10,400 km, located underground in the Pacific Ocean, with the ability to provide a maximum bandwidth of up to 54 Tbps. This cable route has connection points in China, Hong Kong (China), Taiwan (China), Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
AAG is an undersea fiber optic cable with a length of 20,191 km, directly connecting Southeast Asia with the US, and has been put into operation since November 2009. This undersea fiber optic cable route passes through many countries and territories such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam (the cable branch turns into Vietnam is 314km long, the landing point is in Vung Tau), Brunei, Hong Kong (China). , Philippines and the United States.
The AAE-1 undersea fiber optic cable route has a length of 23,000 km, put into operation in July 2017, which plays the role of improving the quality towards Europe and the Middle East as well as providing additional capacity and redundancy to the direction of AAE-1. connecting to Hong Kong (China) and Singapore.
These three fiber optic lines play an important role in Vietnam’s international Internet connection.
