The company said in a statement on Thursday that this, along with recently acquired capacity on the JGA-South cable from Sydney to Guam, would enable the expansion of its subsea network with a new route linking Sydney, Guam, Hawaii and Los Angeles.
Hawaiki said this would provide more connectivity and diversity of routes to companies that need a quick data transfer route between Australia and the US.
The company owns and operates the Hawaiki Transpacific Cable which went into operation in July 2018, and spans 15,000km. It is claimed to be the fastest and largest capacity link between New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii and mainland US with a design capacity of 67Tbps.
Hawaiki said the upgraded configuration announced on Thursday would add to its existing express link with a redundant path between Australia and the US, including diverse landings in Oregon and California.
“This expansion announced today marks a new milestone for Hawaiki, greatly increasing both our reach within the Pacific region and the flexibility of our industry-leading network infrastructure,” said Hawaiki chief executive Rémi Galasso.
As demand for international capacity rose, customers were looking for increasingly versatile connectivity solutions to meet their needs, he added.
“Thanks to the great work we’ve been able to do with our valued Pacific partner, Hawaiian Telcom, we’re now able to provide our customers with powerful new options in terms of capacity products, delivery points and route diversity," Galasso said.
Hawaiian Telecom Carrier Services vice-president Gary Peddicord said: “We’re pleased to support another provider by offering capacity to Hawaiki, enabling them to offer more diversity and service options to their customers.
“Our Trans-Pacific network and terrestrial network in Hawaii complement other carriers' systems to allow connectivity, not only in Hawaii but throughout the Pacific Basin.”
