Telstra this morning announced it had launched 100G Wavelength connectivity across submarine cables, covering Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and the US.
100Gpbs connectivity will be delivered across Telstra's Asia America Gateway (AAG Dedicated Fiber Pair), the Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL), Telstra Endeavour, the Australia-Japan Cable (AJC) and the UNITY cable system.
"As the volume of data generated and consumed worldwide continues to increase exponentially, it's critical the infrastructure responsible for delivering it can cater to this need," Telstra Global Enterprise and Services COO, Darrin Webb, said in a statement.
The high-speed connectivity could help in the delivery of cloud services and bandwidth-hungry applications such as Ultra High Definition Television services.
"Our job, as a trusted network partner, is to adapt and ensure there is capacity where it is required most by our customers," Webb said.
"However the move to 100G is much more than just raw capacity. Alongside enhanced efficiency, 100G can help customers reduce operational expenditure and simplify network maintenance thanks to the service’s ability to consolidate bandwidths.
"It is also flexible enough to meet the requirements of most cable companies by offering landing station and point of presence options too."
"This latest investment means we are well placed to meet the needs of our customers across Asia Pacific and the United States and we're excited to see them benefit from the increased connectivity," the COO said.
