I've seen a sentence like this:

North Korea's internet appears to have been hit by a second wave of outages in as many weeks.

I wonder what does "in as many weeks" mean and specifically "as". Does sentence mean the same without "as"?

There have been two 'waves of outages' in two weeks. That is, there were 'as many' (the same number of) weeks as there were 'waves'.
