The Hawaiki transpacific cable is a 15,000-km fibre optic deep-sea, carrier-neutral cable with a design capacity of 67Tbps. It is claimed to be the fastest and largest capacity link connecting Australia and New Zealand to Hawaii and mainland US.
In a statement, the company said the new route, based on the most easterly segment of the SEA-US cable, marked the completion of its routes to the US, including Hillsboro, Seattle and Hawaii.
“As demand for capacity continues to rise sharply, customers are constantly looking for versatile connectivity solutions," said Hawaiki chief executive Remi Galasso.
“It also provides our customers with powerful new options in terms of capacity products, delivery points and route diversity.”
