Xtera Selected for GOKI Pacific Cable System

AT&T has contracted Xtera Communications and Kokusai Cable Ship Co. to build the GOKI (Guam, Okinawa, Kyushu, Incheon) submarine cable system.


Xtera will provide project management, system design, system integration and the Submarine Line Terminal Equipment (SLTE). Kokusai Cable Ship Co., Ltd. (KCS) will recover and re-lay portions of Transpacific-5 (TPC-5) and a retired regional submarine cable, as well as supply new cable and submerged equipment that will become part of the new solution.


Xtera and KCS will partner to build the 4200 km GOKI system by combining approximately 1,300 km of redeployed cable with remaining sections of the TPC-5 and a retired regional submarine cable. The new system will be fitted with Xtera's Nu-Wave XLR regional repeatered SLTE to maximize capacity. http://www.xtera.com http://www.k-kcs.co.jp/english
