Dhiraagu Hosts South East Asia and Indian Ocean Cable Maintenance Agreement Management Committee Meeting

Dhiraagu hosts South East Asia and Indian Ocean Cable Maintenance Agreement (SEAIOCMA) Management Committee Meeting at Bandos Island Resort, Maldives.

SEAIOCMA is the largest consortium of International submarine cable operators and facility providers such as Cable ships and depots. SEAIOCMA provides submarine cable maintenance spanning an area between Djibouti in the west, Perth in the South, Guam in the East and the northern tip of Taiwan.

The agreement provides for repair and reinstatement of submarine cables that carry international telecommunications traffic in the event of cable damage by ship anchors, fishing, tsunami, earthquake, etc. Ships based in Singapore, Philippines and India are on standby ready to respond within 24 hours in the event of a disruption to telecommunications traffic.

Dhiraagu is the only telecom service provider in Maldives who has partnered with SEAIOCMA to maintain their submarine cables. Dhiraagu has been a member from 2006, since then SEAIOCMA has extended their support in maintaining Dhiraagu’s submarine cable which is laid across Maldives from North to South and its international submarine cable connecting to Sri Lanka.

This is the first time the annual meeting of SEAIOCMA is being hosted in the Maldives and participated by senior executives from leading telecom companies.

Dhiraagu, the Maldives’ leading telecommunications and digital services provider is the only operator in Maldives to be a member of this consortium and since the landing of its submarine cable it has benefited the support from SEAIOCMA.

Being a member of this consortium, it takes as short as 24 hours to respond to the issue in any event of telecommunications traffic in the submarine cable. Dhiraagu has remained to be the service provider with most widespread network in Maldives and being a member of SEAIOCMA has assured the highest value of maintenance service from the world’s best experts of submarine cable to minimize any case of service disruption to our customers. 

There are 44 representatives representing several international submarine cables as well as the facility providers (Cable ships and Depots) taking part in the meeting. The meeting will take place 
from 19th  to 21st March at Bandos Island Resort.
