Ajc Network Upgrade Phase One Completed

An extra 40 Gbit/s of capacity has been added to Australia-Japan Cable Limited’s cable between Australia, Guam and Japan in the first of two upgrades which will give a total upgrade of 160 Gbit/s.
The new capacity under AJC’s Ready for Service milestone became available from Friday December 21 and will be followed by the completion of the second phase in April 2008.

The Phase 1 implementation provides capacity in 10 Gbit/s wavelengths while Phase 2 will provide capacity in 10 Gbit/s wavelengths and also SDH and Ethernet capabilities.

Australia Japan Cable Limited’s CEO Robin Russell said that the upgrade would increase the international capacity available from Australia by 50 per cent.

“Our upgrade goes a long way to filling the identified need for the foreseeable future, even taking into account the large growth in demand.”

Mr Russell said that at the completion of Phase 2 of the AJC upgrade, the AJC Network would have a total of 240Gbit/s installed between Australia, Guam and Japan.  

“The current technical capability of the AJC Network is more than 1,000 Gbit/s and further capacity upgrades to augment the 240 Gbit/s will be implemented as required.

”It clearly positions AJC as the leader in the provision of this service out of Australia.”

The current upgrade involves the installation of 10Gbit/s wavelength equipment plus latest generation SDH transmission equipment at each of the AJC cable stations as well as improved network management capabilities.

AJC cable stations are located at Oxford Falls and Paddington in Australia, Tanguisson and Tumon Bay in Guam and Maruyama and Shima in Japan.  The AJC Network comprises an optical fibre ring which has diverse landings in Australia, Guam and Japan to enable protected traffic to be routed to the alternative landing should here be a failure between the shore and up to 4000m water, notwithstanding existing risk mitigation measures including cable armouring and burial.

All upgrade implementation is at the cable stations and does not involve any change to the submarine parts of AJC such as the cable or repeaters.  

Testing confirmed that the upgrade equipment meets applicable international transmission standards.  It included AJC personnel checking equipment at the factory prior to delivery, then in-station testing after installation, followed by network testing between Australia, Guam and Japan.
