Vocus connects to Australia Singapore Cable

By

The US$170 million Australia Singapore Cable has now been connected to the terrestrial network of Australia's fourth largest telecommunications company, Vocus Communications.

Vocus says connection will provide Australia with a massive increase in capacity into the Asian region.

The company and its partner, Alcatel Submarine Networks, finished laying the 4600-kilometre cable in July, after a 20-month installation project.

Vocus Group managing director and chief executive Kevin Russell said the Vocus team was finalising its testing phase for the cable system to be ready for service on 14 September, when customers would be able to enjoy the “newest, fastest and most direct connectivity route into Asia”.

Russell said that with data growth in Asia the fastest in the world, “the centre of the Internet universe is shifting from the Americas to Asia, where bandwidth is expected to outpace the US and Europe by 2020”.

He said the ASC was a crucial piece of infrastructure and it had never been a more important time for Australia to be connected to the Asian region.

“The ASC will provide the newest, quickest and most direct route into Asia with the largest increase of international connectivity for Australia into the fastest growing data region in the world," Russell said.

“The technology deployed on the ASC has been selected to easily integrate with the intelligent network management platform Vocus is currently rolling out, offering superior latency over comparable systems.

“The cable has also been incorporated into the Equinix International Interconnection ecosystem spanning 275 cloud providers and thousands of data centres globally.”
