KDDI Picks Ciena for JIH Cable Upgrade

KDDI has selected Ciena for the Japan Information Highway (JIH) submarine cable upgrade project.

Ciena’s GeoMesh submarine solutions will be used to provide high-capacity 100G services on KDDI's 3,000km link from Miyazaki-to-Okinawa and Shima-to-Okinawa.

Since 1999 KDDI’s JIH submarine cable has been providing connectivity to the Japanese main islands. The upgrade will add significant capacity on this vital network route.
