Telstra launches 100G Wavelengths on Submarine Cables

Telstra launched new 100G Wavelength services across multiple ultra-long haul submarine cable routes globally.

The new 100G Wavelength service is delivered via Telstra's Asia America Gateway (AAG Dedicated Fiber Pair), Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL), Telstra Endeavour, Australia-Japan Cable (AJC) and UNITY cable systems,

These cables reach Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Australia and the United States.

"As the volume of data generated and consumed worldwide continues to increase exponentially, it's critical the infrastructure responsible for delivering it can cater to this need. Our job, as a trusted network partner, is to adapt and ensure there is capacity where it is required most by our customers. However the move to 100G is much more than just raw capacity. Alongside enhanced efficiency, 100G can help customers reduce operational expenditure and simplify network maintenance thanks to the service's ability to consolidate bandwidths. It is also flexible enough to meet the requirements of most cable companies by offering landing station and point of presence options too," stated Darrin Webb, Chief Operating Officer, Telstra Global Enterprise & Services
