Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Google plans to contribute to a $300m project that aims to traverse the Pacific with a new high-capacity submarine cable.

The FASTER project will have a design capacity of 60 Tbps on six fibre pairs, each carrying 100 wavelengths of 100 Gbps, as this NEC media release says.

The cable will connect two landing points in Japan – Chikura and Shima – with US west coast hubs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. Joining the Chocolate Factory in the build will be China Mobile, China Telecom Global, Global Transit, KDDI and SingTel.

NEC notes that it will be the highest-capacity cable on the trans-Pacific route.

Construction is to begin immediately, and the cable is due to enter service in Q2 2016. The other five companies in the consortium are China Mobile International, China Telecom Global, Global Transit, KDDI and SingTel. ®
