Upgrade widens pipe to 200 Gigabits

Southern Cross has announced the first 200 Gigabits of capacity from its latest upgrade is available at the same time as prices have been reduced by up to 44 percent.

The company has also announced it is planning to deploy 100 Gigabits per second transmission equipment by December this year.

According to Southern Cross the upgrade is the fifth since 2001. In October 2011 Southern Cross signed a two stage capacity upgrade contract to deploy Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform and 5400 reconfigurable switches as well as Ciena’s OneControl unified management systems. The first phase uses 40 Gigabits per second transmission equipment on the network for the first time.

However the move to 40 Gbps from the existing 10 Gbps platform will be short lived, says Southern Cross, as the company will implement Ciena's 100 Gbps transmission equipment by December when the second phase of the current upgrade is due to be completed. For more on this click here.
