RTI selects Equinix to connect new submarine cable system in Australia, Japan Featured

By

Singapore-headquartered undersea cable owner RTI Connectivity has selected data centre operator Equinix to extend its connectivity solutions in Sydney and Tokyo.

Equinix says RTI, an experienced cable owner, and its affiliates will soon be completing construction on several new high-fibre capacity cables that will land on Guam.

Equinix also says its termination points that are currently live include two cable routes:

  • Japan-Guam-Australia South Cable System (JGA South) connecting Sydney and Guam with termination into Equinix SY4 IBX in Sydney and with a branch to Australia’s Sunshine Coast, and
  • Japan-Guam-Australia North Cable System (JGA North) connecting Tokyo and Guam with termination into Equinix TY2 IBX in Tokyo.

RTI says its transpacific cable systems will further enhance and contribute to the expansion of communications networks from the Asia-Pacific region and Australia, improving network redundancy, ensuring reliable communications and expanding onward connectivity options in Guam.

“With direct access to JGA South and JGA North in Australia and Japan, Equinix provides its customers with the ability to connect and expand business in both Australia and the Asia-Pacific region,” Equinix notes.

“JGA South’s initial design capacity of 36 Tbps empowers our customers with unrivaled scalability that will seamlessly interconnect Equinix’s campuses in Sydney and Tokyo,” said Russ Matulich, Chief Executive Officer, RTI.

“Content users of any size can now quickly connect to us across the campus, easily transmit their content over the fastest path between Sydney and Tokyo, and rest assured that their content is being delivered safely and securely.”

“RTI’s transpacific cable systems is a great addition to the list of submarine cable systems offered in Equinix, and presents further connectivity options to our customers,” said Jeremy Deutsch, President, Equinix Asia-Pacific

“We’re proud to facilitate greater business opportunities between Australia and Asia and provide additional enhanced and efficient interconnection options for enterprises and service providers alike, to continue to drive growth of the digital economy between these two growing markets.”
