Huawei Marine Builds Trans-Tasman Undersea Link

Huawei Marine announced the finalization of a survey agreement for the trans-Tasman Optikor Network.

This new trans-Tasman link, which is set to be completed by the end of 2013, will be more than 3,000KM in length and will connect Sydney, Australia with South Island and North Island, New Zealand. Initially designed to provide a capacity of 120G with 1 fiber pair, the link will eventually provide 6.4 Tbps with 2 fibre pairs. This solution will address the large capacity requirements in the region and become the main broadband solution provider between Australia and New Zealand.
