Telstra Launches 100G Asia Pacific Submarine Cable Service
Announcing the launch of the service, Telstra stated it will aid in accommodating the growth of cloud-based data operators and connect the increasing number of data centres managed by service and content providers.
Darrin Webb, Telstra Global Enterprise & Services chief operating officer said it will also help deliver the connectivity and capacity needed to support market demand for larger bandwidth applications, including HD video services and ultra-HD television.
“As the volume of data generated and consumed worldwide continues to increase exponentially, it’s critical the infrastructure responsible for delivering it can cater to this need,” Webb commented.
Webb added that the move to 100G “is much more than just raw capacity”.
“Alongside enhanced efficiency, 100G can help customers reduce operational expenditure and simplify network maintenance thanks to the service’s ability to consolidate bandwidths,” he commented.
“It is also flexible enough to meet the requirements of most cable companies by offering landing station and point of presence options, too.”
100G Wavelength will be delivered via Telstra’s Asia America Gateway (AAG Dedicated Fiber Pair), Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL), Telstra Endeavour, Australia-Japan Cable (AJC) and UNITY cable systems.
