NTT Activates New Cable Linking Japan to Trans-Pacific Express

NTT Communications (NTT Com) launched a new cable route linking Japan to the Trans-Pacific Express Cable Network (TPE), an optical fiber cable system that interconnects Mainland China, South Korea, Taiwan, the United States and now Japan.

TPE, which was built by a consortium comprising NTT Com, AT&T, China Telecommunications, China United Telecommunications, Chunghwa Telecom, KT Corporation and Verizon Business, began operating on September 30, 2008.

The construction and operational startup of the Japan--Asia section leg constitutes the second phase of the TPE project. The TPE now comprises approximately 18,000 kilometers of cable and offers maximum transmission capacity of up to 5.12 terabits per second.


It's great that you are telling us about these things. Penny
