Pacific Crossing Boosts Capacity

Pacific Crossing, which is a division of NTT Communications, has again boosted the capacity of its PC-1 trans-Pacific undersea cable network and expanded its Ethernet service capability.

The newly added capacity will come into service at the end of July. A third upgrade of the PC-1 system is scheduled for later in 2010.

Following its upgrade of the PC-1 system in 2008, which pushed the lit capacity of the cable over the 1Tbps mark, Pacific Crossing has now added additional wavelengths to boost trans-Pacific capacity further to more than 1.3Tbps. The upgrade has been implemented seamlessly on the existing PC-1 infrastructure, with no interruption to customer services and circuits.
