Australia's PIPE Networks is joining the 100G party, courtesy of Infinera's DTN-X platform and those 500Gbps PIC superchannels. Infinera's gear went live to market this summer, and this is the first APAC deployment to be announced.
PIPE operates the PPC-1 submarine cable system connecting Australia to Guam. From Guam they connect to Tata's TGN-Pacific and the Asia America Gateway cable. They also operate a terrestrial network in Australia and offer connectivity via Southern Cross to reach the west coast of the US from two angles.
The upgrade will boost capacity on the PPC-1 submarine cable system to more than 3Tbps, while also boosting things on land with deployment in multiple data centers in the Sydney metro area.
