High Risk EAC2 Cable Protected
Guardian has been successfully deployed to proactively protect the highest risk section of EAC2 Cable around the Singapore Straits.
Cables in the Singapore Strait are particularly at risk with more than 2,500 vessels and 11 million metric tons of cargo movement every week.
Despite using manual monitoring and intervention, incidents still occur, resulting in damage to these cables.
Telstra sought a proactive solution to further improve their network resilience.
Guardian detects risky behaviour (eg anchoring) or high risk vessels (eg fishing trawlers) and sends a real-time message to the navigation system of that vessel.
The Guardian AIS Station was strategically located near the coastline to proactively protect the 75km of cable that had incurred multiple incidents.
