Tata Communications Completes 100G Upgrades to Pacific Cables

Tata Communications completed a 100G upgrade along the TGN-Pacific (TGN-P) submarine cable system that connects the U.S. to Japan and three routes in the TGN-Intra-Asia (TGN-IA) market across Asia. With these upgrades complete, Tata Communications now has 100G deployed across major routes around the world on its own infrastructure -- the first private subsea cable owner to achieve this.

The upgrades on the TGN-P submarine cables – which is the longest segment in route km and believed to be the highest capacity subsea cables deployed in the Pacific – used Ciena’s 6500 Converged Packet Optical platform and GeoMesh solution.  As a result, Tata Communications now offers 100G transport services on its TGN-P submarine cable system that links the U.S. to Japan, a distance spanning 22,300 km. The cable connects Emi, Chiba to Hillsboro, Oregon and Toyohashi as well as Aichi Prefecture to Hillsboro, Oregon. In addition, Ciena’s solutions also supports Tata Communications’ Intra-Asia network, which spans roughly 6,700 km.

Genius Wong, Senior Vice President, Global Network Services, Tata Communications says, "We continue to make significant investments to our global network as we understand that connectivity is one of the most critical backbones in a world where hyper-connectivity has become a part of the everyday fabric of life and business. Investments such as the 100G upgrade to our TGN-Pacific submarine cable and Intra-Asia routes enable us to meet customer demand for high-bandwidth services and applications, whilst ensuring end-to-end network performance for our enterprise and carrier customers across the US and Asia."
