TE SubCom to supply trans-Pacific cable for Hawaiki

According to the companies, the system will be capable of 10 Tbps per fibre pair on the Australia/New-Zealand to USA trunk

US submarine cable vendor TE SubCom will design and lay a fibre optic cable system as part of Hawaiki Cable’s planned 14,000 km trans-Pacific cable linking Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii to the US west coast, which is planned for completion in 2015.

According to the companies, the system will be capable of 10 Tbps per fibre pair on the Australia/New-Zealand to USA trunk.

Undersea cable system elements will be based on 100 Gbps wavelength technology. The cable system will also include SubCom’s Optical Add Drop Multiplexing (OADM) branching unit technology to connect multiple regional branches to the main cable.

“Our procurement process first started in October 2012 and has progressed according to plan. The supply contract with TE SubCom is a major step forward for Hawaiki and adds significant momentum to our project,” said Rémi Galasso, CEO of Hawaiki Cable.

TE SubCom will survey the cable route, use collected data to design and manufacture the fibre optic cable system in its New Hampshire factories, and employ its fleet of cable ships to lay the cable in the Pacific Ocean.

The New Jersey-based company earlier this month signed a contract with Australia's SubPartners, which is building a 4.7km cable stretching from Perth to Singapore.
