The CLS is an environmentally-controlled, secure building that houses equipment to ensure data and information is smoothly transmitted on the fibre optical cable. With the CLS in place, equipment installation and testing is underway.

Representatives from PNG DataCo, Gravelroad, Vocus and DFAT inspected the site on 31 July exactly one year after their first visit.
