Australia-Japan Cable completes major upgrade to submarine cable systemStaff Writer | January 17, 2019
Infinera announced the completion of a major upgrade to Australia-Japan Cable’s (AJC) submarine cable system connecting Australia, Guam and Japan earlier this month.
Australia AJC tripled lit capacity on its 12,700-kilometer subsea cable
The network upgrade also delivers a 60 percent end-of-life capacity increase to AJC’s trans-Pacific cable system.
AJC first deployed Infinera’s subsea solution in 2014. The recent capacity upgrade with ICE4 was achieved without service interruption and enables AJC to rapidly activate new capacity for customers with Infinera Instant Bandwidth.
Instant Bandwidth allows AJC to quickly activate and pay for additional capacity when needed, reducing the initial cost of deployment and much of the up-front commercial risk. ■
