Capacity Upgrade


The Australia Japan Cable has picked Ciena for a 40G upgrade that will add a further 560Gbps of capacity to its 12,700km network between Australia, Guam, and Japan. The new upgrade will be based on Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform featuring its WaveLogic coherent processors, which will support a future migration to 100G technology.

“We selected Ciena after a stringent selection and trial process because of their demonstrable track record in deploying 40G Coherent solution for segments over 7,000 kilometers in reach. The ability to expeditiously augment AJC’s existing capacity plus support OTN services from day one also played a key role noting the continually increasing data volumes carried by AJC.”
