Challenge

The Northern Mariana Islands were served by a single fiber optic cable, quickly reaching its design life. With no redundancy to support their high-speed communications, these islands were at risk of suddenly losing their communication to the rest of the world, which occurred on July of 2015 after their single cable was cut.

Solution

DOCOMO Pacific led the way to building a second subsea fiber-optic connection to the Northern Mariana Islands and brought on OSI to take a technical lead on this critical infrastructure system, with responsibilities ranging from technical assessment, route survey and design, to RFP adjudication, supplier negotiation and manufacturing and installation oversight.
