Australia-Japan Cable to Implement 40 Gbps with Ciena

Ciena has been selected to upgrade the Australia-Japan undersea cable system, which runs approximately 12,700 kilometers between Sydney, Guam and Japan.

The Australia Japan Cable (AJC) will deploy Ciena's 6500 Packet-Optical Platform with 40G technology, enabling the system to add a total of 560 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of capacity. The deployment will also give AJC the ability to scale to 100G wavelengths as bandwidth demands evolve. The upgrade will also include Ciena’s OneControl Unified Management System.
