The Hawaiki trans-Pacific cable, launched in July 2018, is a 15,000-km fibre optic deep-sea, carrier-neutral cable with a design capacity of 67Tbps. It is the fastest and largest capacity link connecting Australia and New Zealand to Hawaii and mainland United States.
A statement from the company said Hawaiki selected the Westin Building Exchange as it had a large number of global carriers, simplified connectivity options and available cloud services that had been the hallmark of the original trans-Pacific, terabit fibre hub on the US West coast.
“Choosing the WBX in Seattle was a natural but strategic decision for us,” said Hawaiki chief executive Remi Galasso. “With over 250 carriers, cloud and content providers within their ecosystem, we could not have found a more ideal location.”
“At WBX, we are simplifying access to carriers, companies, clouds, countries and continents,” said Michael Boyle, strategic planning director with WBX.
“The reason organisations like Hawaiki establish a presence with the Westin Building Exchange is due to the availability of multiple, cost-effective connectivity options and direct access to all major carriers and cloud providers, located in our building.”
