International bandwidth provider Southern Cross Cables has deployed network strategy and technology company Ciena's WaveLogic Ai tunable coherent optics and the 6500 T-series to cope with the increased demand for connectivity.

A statement from the company said the deployment of Ciena's GeoMesh Extreme solution was the first subsea deployment of WaveLogic Ai over compensated cable. It was also the first use of 200Gbps wavelengths between Sydney and Auckland.

Southern Cross provides bandwidth from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii to the US. The network included two submarine communications cables which were first commissioned in November 2000 and January 2001 and provide Australasian broadband users with international connections to seven key locations on the US West coast.

The statement added that Ciena’s WaveLogic Ai would allow Southern Cross to monitor links in real-time and also provide scalability by allowing an additional 6.4Tbps of wavelength expansion across the Southern Cross subsea and terrestrial networks.

“Our customers’ needs are changing almost daily as they move towards the cloud and larger web-scale data flows, particularly between continents,” said Southern Cross Cable Network director of Marketing and Sales, Craige Sloots.

“Ciena’s technology not only boosts the capacity of our Southern Cross undersea cable, but also adds a level of intelligence and service capability that is unmatched in submarine cable networks anywhere in the world.

"Southern Cross’ success is driven by our focus on flexibility and service, and our partnership with Ciena allows us to adapt the network as required to proactively manage and grow with changing user demands.”

“Southern Cross Cables is setting a new industry benchmark by creating a more intelligent and programmable network that can adapt and quickly respond to dynamic customer demands,” said Rick Seeto, Ciena’s vice-president and general manager, Asia/Pacific and Japan, Ciena.
