Infinera has been busy on multiple subsea route lately, with three interesting announcements so far this week.
Infinera and Hawaiki have demoed 800G, achieving 4.5Tbps on 15,000km of uncompensated subsea cable between Australia and the US. They leveraged Infinera’s ICE6 technology on the company’s GX platform and leveraging the company’s software automation.
Meanwhile, Infinera and the Australia Japan Cable have also teamed up for a nextgen subsea bandwidth trial. They delivered 17% more total fiber pair capacity across a 7,289km segment between Australia and Guam. AJC is an older system that went live 22 years ago, and the goal is clearly to squeeze more value out of it.
And SEACOM has leveraged Infinera’s ICE6 technology to go live on the new Equiano subsea cable. They are offering private line services between Cape Town, South Africa and Lisbon, Portugal. Equiano went tino service last August with 12 fiber pairs and a design capacity of some 144Tbps.
