New Zealand cable company Hawaiki Cable has carried out an upgrade to its Oregon point-of-interconnect deploying Ciena’s GeoMesh submarine network solution that uses Waveserver Ai stackable interconnect platform to create a more cost-effective link from Hawaii.

“This route previously went from Kapolei (Hawaii) to Pacific City (Oregon) where an optical-electrical-optical regeneration was required to allow protection on the terrestrial link to Hillsboro,” Hawaiki chief executive Remi Galasso said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We upgraded this part of our network with the deployment of a multi-span trunk switching solution from Ciena, enabling optical regeneration only. This allows the link to be extended right into the Hillsboro POP with optical protection while eliminating the need for costly regeneration and reducing latency in our cable landing station.”

The Hawaiki cable operates over more than 15,000km and connects more than 350 million users in Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa, Hawaii, and the US.

Tuesday's upgrade is claimed to have improved reliability and availability as well as lower latency. It is part of the company's major capacity upgrade to cope with the growing needs of customers and also the spike in demand accompanying the coronavirus pandemic.

“We now offer a broad range of customer solutions, scaling from 1GbE, 10GbE and 100GbE services over 200Gbps, 250Gbps and 300Gbps wavelengths today” Galasso noted.

“Our increased investment and deepening collaboration with Ciena couldn’t come at a more important time, with organisations, communities and people across the Pacific - and globally - now so completely dependent on fast, reliable connectivity to maintain operations and quality of life during the current pandemic.”

Rick Seeto, vice-president and general manager of Asia-Pacific and Japan, Ciena, said: “Ciena’s industry-leading solutions equip Hawaiki’s submarine network with greater flexibility and faster delivery, enabling them to better serve increasingly diverse customer needs.”
