Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Junior telco Vocus has announced it's extending its Sydney fibre network with a second northern beaches route.

The 20-km 312-core cable run, due to be lit in November 2013, will take in the industrial parks of Frenchs Forest, then head east towards the surf at Cromer, finally taking in Brookvale and Manly. Vocus will be adding its name to the boaties' warning signs at Middle Harbour, laying a submarine cable near Roseville Bridge.

Prysmian is to supply the 312-core waterproofed loose-tube fibre for the short water crossing.

The run will add diversity to an existing northern beaches run from Manly to Mosman, Cremorne and North Sydney, completing a ring that also takes in the Southern Cross Cable Network's landing station.

The company notes that as well as state government, council and Roads & Maritime Services approvals, its six months of planning also required approval to traverse the Garigal National Park. The project was kick-started by demand from customers like Network Ten.

It's been a busy time for the junior telco, which in September announced plans for new data centres in Melbourne's 500 Collins Street, and Albany in the north of Auckland. ®
