Telstra is upgrading multiple ultra-long haul submarine cable routes using Infinera's DTN-X platform.
Infinera said its Intelligent Transport Network will enable Telstra to quickly deploy 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet and OTN services on:
- Telstra Endeavour – a 9,124 kilometre submarine cable connecting Sydney and Hawaii;
- Telstra’s Designated Fibre Pair on the Asia America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable connecting Hawaii and California; and
- Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL), which spans 9,000 kilometres to connect Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.
Dr. David Welch, Infinera CTO, Co-Founder and President said, “As global businesses turn to cloud-based offerings, we’re seeing increasing demand for reliable, global connectivity. We are delighted to build on our existing relationship with Telstra Global to deploy an Intelligent Transport Network across these major submarine routes.
