Megaport has announced a new route between Hong Kong and Los Angeles, plus a secondary path from Singapore to Hong Kong to meet demand.
The new link means enterprise customers can access trans-Pacific capacity via Megaport's global software defined network.
For example, they can directly connect to Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft Azure, and other cloud service providers.
"Through this new route, we are able to bring together Megaport's backbone in Asia and our terrestrial network in North America, therein providing a more immersive network and a richer fabric through the increased number of customers, partners, and providers on the combined footprint."
In related news, Megaport last week activated new trans-Atlantic connectivity thanks to a partnership with Aqua Comms, the owner/operator of the AE Connect undersea cable that provides 13TB of capacity between New York, Dublin and London.
