EASSy Strengths
EASSy offers a number of key benefits compared with alternative systems. Click on each for further details:

EASSy is the only cable on the African east coast to be based on a "collapsed ring" design end-to-end, minimising the impact of cable cuts and equipment failure. This, together with the availability of alternative terrestrial routes via consortium members' networks, makes EASSy the only African east coast system truly designed for resilience.

BENEFIT: EASSy offers greater resilience than any other system serving sub-Saharan Africa.
