Vanuatu and Solomon Islands
The Solomon Islands, as many other sparsely populated Asia-Pacific islands, are connected to the rest of the world through satellite service, making communications slow and expensive.
After their successful completion of Interchange Cable Network 1 (ICN1), where Interchange Limited (ICL) provided Vanuatu with their first FO connection, the company turned their focus to providing high-speed connectivity to their neighbor to the north, the Solomon Islands. OSI began working with ICL at the business model stage of this network. We continued supporting ICL through the procurement process and vendor adjudication, to eventually become the project manager of their ICN2 cable network giving us full technical and contractual responsibility over the project.
