These stations are renowned for their strategic locations and pivotal roles in global connectivity:

Jeddah Region Cable Landing Stations: Strategically distributed across the city, the Jeddah Cable Landing Stations solidify its status as a prime hub for international submarine cable systems, hosting ten submarine cable systems. Designed to the highest quality standards, these stations facilitate the latest generation of high-capacity systems, including the prestigious Saudi Vision Submarine System and the revolutionary 2Africa Cable System, along with many others like IMEWE, EIG, SMW4 and MENA. They enable us to harness the full potential of global communications from Jeddah, offering businesses hosting services in Saudi Arabia and access to enhanced worldwide connectivity.

Yanbu Region Cable Landing Stations: The two Yanbu landing stations, situated on the Red Sea coast, are modern facilities that support four high-capacity submarine cable systems including SVC, IEX, 2Africa, and SMW5. These stations provide a secure and efficient platform for seamless global connectivity and data transmission.

Duba Region Cable Landing Station: The Duba Cable Landing Station, a state-of-the-art facility, hosts the Saudi Vision cable system and provides seamless global connectivity. With its Tier-III certification, the Duba station upholds the highest standards of reliability, security, and performance, minimizing downtime and meeting the dynamic demands of the digital landscape.

Haql Region Cable Landing Station: Situated on the northern coast of the Red Sea, the Haql Cable Landing Station is a modern facility that hosts the Saudi Vision cable system, enabling seamless global and national connectivity. Also boasting Tier-III Data Center certification, this station ensures top-tier reliability and uninterrupted service. It is designed to accommodate multiple future cable systems, offering scalable infrastructure for expanding connectivity options.

Al Khobar Region Cable Landing Stations: Located in the kingdom's eastern province, the Al Khobar Cable Landing Stations offer a robust infrastructure for seamless global communication from the Arabian Gulf’s coast.
