Some subsea and longhaul items worth checking out from this week:
Zayo and Infinera have been busy stretching the reach of 800G. The two announced the completion of a 1044.51km connection between Springville UT and Reno NV via Infinera’s ICE6 800G coherent technology. That bests the 1000 km barrier for the first time in a commercial network, beating the prior record by 74.5km. Zayo has been rolling out 400G and 800G across its longhaul footprint in recent months.
HyperOne is suggesting a new, accelerated subsea cable project to connect Tasmania to Australia. The upstart fiber network operator’s CEO and Founder Bevan Slattery made a public appeal for government support for such a project, offering to solve the island’s infrastructure issues by 2024 if it can get a federal commitment of some $30M.
Seaborn has officially extended its terrestrial reach on the US end over to NJFX’s campus in Wall NJ. The company’s Seabras-1 cable system has always landed right next door of course, with direct connectivity on to NYC. By directly accessing the ecosystem at NJFX, Seaborn can now offer routes traffic from South America to bypass congestion points in NYC and other nearby hubs to pass more directly to and from other US destinations.
