Southern Cross Delivers 100G to CoreSite Silicon Valley

Southern Cross Cable Network, a leading Australasian supplier of international subsea capacity, is now delivering 100 Gbps connections at CoreSite’s “SV1” (Silicon Valley) data center, connecting the U.S. to Hawaii, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand.

The 100 Gbps technology has been deployed across all segments of Southern Cross’ 30,000-kilometer submarine network.  The 100Gbps transmission technology increases total lit capacity across Southern Cross’ two cables to 2.6 Terabits per second (Tbps), which will grow to 3.6 Tbps by June 2014.

Tenants at CoreSite’s tethered Silicon Valley campus of data centers in San Jose, Milpitas and Santa Clara, Calif., will have access to seamless high-capacity connectivity without purchasing backhaul to a landing station.

“Through our partnership with Southern Cross, CoreSite customers can now take advantage of exceptional high-performance connectivity linking the heart of Silicon Valley to Australasia,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at CoreSite. “Demand for capacity is growing and both CoreSite and Southern Cross share a commitment to providing best-in-class service to meet the needs of our customers.”

“With the exploding growth in customer content and cloud connectivity requirements, our commitment to technology and product development places Southern Cross in a strong position to assist customers in meeting their growing requirements. Southern Cross can currently deliver capacity from as little as 1Gbps up to 100Gbps directly into the CoreSite San Jose facility,” said Ross Pfeffer, sales and marketing director at Southern Cross. “Southern Cross and CoreSite customers now have a unique opportunity to receive high-capacity connectivity through CoreSite’s Silicon Valley data center campus, providing access to one of the largest concentrations of Internet and technology companies.”
