Pacific Fibre signs up undersea cable supplier

TE SubCom cordage to link Sydney, Auckland, Los Angeles

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Pacific Fibre has awarded TE SubCom, formerly Tyco Telecommunications, with the supply contract for its undersea cable system.

The two-cable, 12,750km-long cable system will link Australia and New Zealand via a trans-Tasman cable, while connecting New Zealand to the United States via a trans-Pacific cable. The cable landing points will be in Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and Los Angeles in the US.

"The Pacific Fibre cable will not only provide unsurpassed high speed international connectivity to satisfy the growth in broadband demand, but it will also help Australia and New Zealand realise the potential of both countries' multi-billion dollar broadband initiatives," said Pacific Fibre CEO Mark Rushworth.

The project will compete directly with Southern Cross Cable Networks and is set to meet the skyrocketing demand for international bandwidth in Australia and New Zealand, which has been growing at a rate of 55 per cent per year. Last week Pacific Fibre announced that it had revised the contract from its foundation customer REANNZ for the supply of international capacity valued at NZ$91m.

The project's launch is planned for the first quarter of 2014. ®
