Australia Japan Cable (AJC) has completed a multi-terabit upgrade to its undersea network using equipment from Infinera. AJC offers connectivity and bandwidth to its customers across a 12,700 km submarine fiber optic cable network linking Australia, Guam and Japan.
This second and final phase of deployment completes a multi-terabit, high-capacity ring providing diverse fiber paths into cable landing stations in Australia, Guam and Japan, where Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platforms enable an Intelligent Transport Network for AJC.
"This network upgrade with Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network has enabled the retirement of AJC’s original 10G transport equipment and the transfer of traffic to the more capable Infinera DTN-X platform," said Philip Murphy, Head of Engineering at AJC. ”The original AJC 10G technology served us well but the efficiency, flexibility and speed of deploying the Infinera DTN-X to deliver 100G allows AJC to be more responsive to our customers in terms of client interfaces and traffic switching.”
