TE SubCom Upgrades 9,500km Trans-Pacific Cable to 40G

TE SubCom has completed the first 40G upgrade in an undersea cable system more than 9,500km in length. The upgrade increased the existing cable system’s capacity by 22 x 40G.

"Completing the first long-haul system upgrade from 10G to 40G highlights our advanced capabilities and commitment to providing the highest density cable systems being built. Further, the project is an important step forward for the industry, as it sets a new standard for upgrading existing subsea cable systems and paves the way for moving toward 100G achievements," stated David Coughlan, CEO of TE SubCom.
