Globe Telecom Upgrades To Fiber Optics Solution in Coron, Palawan

Is it the reason why Globe Telecom has recently had a problem with its connection? Last few weeks, I got frustrated about the connection, it will disconnect approximately every 10 minutes but some varied to other areas.

But as of today, I got a chance to feel ease with this kind of opportunity. Is it the signal or storm? Or is it the upgrades of its system?
Globe Telecom once again take part for its another network modernization program. The company has upgraded to Fiber optics in Coron, Palawan province and hope for the improved network coverage with the benefits to attract tourists to visit the Philippines.To strengthen the network will only mean to be one of the country's tourist destinations.

Robert Tan, Globe chief technical adviser, said:

“The submarine fiber connection in Coron forms part of our efforts to boost network coverage and augment capacity given increasing demand for connectivity even while our customers are on vacation and to enhance overall network performance,” 

Coron Submarine cable system is a 62 km fiber optics cable that connects from 270 km fiber optics network between Mindoro and the Palawan. This upgrade from an existing system to a more robust and reliable system using Fiber Optic Technology and DWDM(dense wave division multiplexing system) will transmit 40 wavelengths at 40 GB/s capacity per fiber pair.

What would it mean?

It means Coron, Palawan will have a significant bandwidth to offer to subscribers. Users will experience high-speed browsing, seamless streaming, download and upload speed, and more reliable network for text and calls.

Tan said the Coron submarine cable system will power up cell sites with third generation or 3G and Evolved High-Speed Packet Access or HSPA+ connectivity and will readily support Long Term Evolution (LTE) services. It has a total transmission capacity of 9.6 terabits per second. The undersea cable system is also upgradable to a 100 gigabits per second DWDM system, giving the company flexibility in providing other network services.

Globe Telecom's network transformation program includes as a component the roll-out of about 12,000 kilometers of optical fiber lines nationwide.
