The ditch between Australia and New Zealand is getting a lot more hectic with moves for another trans-Tasman cable link underway.

Axin Limited and Huawei Marine have signed a survey agreement for the trans-Tasman Optikor Network.

This fresh trans-Tasman link, a rival to Southern Cross Cable Networks, is set to be completed by the end of 2013.

Another competitive cable cabal, Pacific Fibre, backed by Trade Me entrepreneur Sam Morgan, is also planning to enter the cable market and build a $US400 million between Auckland, Sydney and Los Angeles.

The Optikor 3,000 Km link is designed to provide a capacity of 120 Gbps with one fibre pair and will eventually provide 6.4 Tbit/s with two fibre pairs.

The operators claim that the cable is set to become the main broadband solution provider between Australia and New Zealand. Once completed it will connect Sydney, Australia with South Island and North Island, New Zealand.

Axin Limited, founded in 2010, is fully invested by Sino Telecommunications, and was strategically launched to take advantage of opportunities brought about by Australia’s National Broadband Network and New Zealand’s Ultra Fast Broadband initiative. ®
