Home Business Telecommunications Hawaiki, PacketFabric sign deal to extend connectivity

Auckland-based Hawaiki Submarine Cable has signed an agreement with PacketFabric, a scalable platform that offers connectivity-as-a-service, to provision secure, low-latency trans-Pacific capacity on Hawaiki's submarine cable system and extend the reach of PacketFabric’s software-defined networking platform in the Asia-Pacific region.

The deal means that Hawaiki can now reach more than 150 locations on PacketFabric's network.

The Hawaiki cable commenced commercial operations for its 15,000km fibre optic deep-sea cable linking Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and United States on 20 July last year.

It provides 43 terabits of new capacity and allows for greater connectivity, diversity and price competition in the market.

“PacketFabric is a natural partner for Hawaiki and gives us the ability to extend our capacity services to everywhere and everyone PacketFabric reaches,” said Hawaiki chief executive Remi Galasso.

“This means new customers can quickly and easily connect to the Hawaiki cable system, and enjoy greater capacity and diversity across the Pacific.”

PacketFabric president and chief operating officer Chad Milam said: “Partnering with Hawaiki allows us to extend our disruptive software-defined networking platform into the fast-growing markets of the Asia-Pacific region, including the creation of new POPs in Sydney and Auckland.

"Not only can PacketFabric offer customers transpacific capacity, but also the newest and fastest route to Australia and New Zealand through Hawaiki, from any location on PacketFabric’s private and secure network.”
