stc enables operators to interconnect undersea cable systems as well as international terrestrial networks through stc's landing station in Jeddah. Sitting at the heart of the Middle East, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an ideal location for telecoms operators to interconnect between undersea cables. International operators can interconnect between two undersea cables that are connected at stc’s landing station at Jeddah as well as interconnect between an undersea cable connected to Jeddah landing station and a hard-patched circuit from Jeddah to a client's border connection. stc offers connectivity between SMW-3, SAS-1 and FLAG cable systems as well as a hard-patched link with other undersea cable systems. In addition, stc offers interconnection between its two landing stations in Jeddah when connecting SMW-4 to SMW-3, Flag or SAS-1.
