There’s no denying that the last two decades have seen demand for bandwidth increasing – something that has provided much opportunity for growth for the networking market, but also presented it with some major challenges.
Google is building a new submarine cable system to connect the East coast of the United States with Europe. TE SubCom has been selected to build the Dunant four-fibre pair cable system, which will span more than 6,400km.
TE SubCom has won a contract with Vanuatu-based consortium, Interchange to construct the ICN2 submarine cable that will connect Port Vila, Vanuatu and Luganville, Vanuatu to Honiara, Solomon Islands.
EATONTOWN, NEW JERSEY – TE SubCom has announced that the final splice of the Hawaiki Submarine Cable has been made and the system is on schedule to be in service in June 2018.
APIA, SAMOA AND EATONTOWN, N.J., USA – Samoa Submarine Cable Company (SSCC) and TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company have announced that TE SubCom will construct a new submarine cable depot in the Port of Apia, Samoa to service and maintain more than 20 cable systems in the South Pacific region. In March of last year, TE SubCom was awarded the South Pacific Marine Maintenance Agreement (SPMMA), a five-year service agreement between SubCom and 15 cable operators in the region.
Google has announced that it plans to build three new subsea cables as part of an investment drive for its cloud infrastructure.
With the additional news that the it will be adding a further five regions to its network – which, according to the company, already delivers 25 per cent of worldwide internet traffic – the additional cable investment will be essential in continuing to maintain and improve performance.
TE SubCom, a submarine cable technology provider, has been selected to supply the North Atlantic Hafvrue cable system, which will connect mainland Northern Europe to the United States – the first system to do so in almost 20 years.
Owned and operated by a consortium of parties including Aqua Comms, Bulk Infrastructure, and Facebook, Hafvrue is comprised of a trunk cable that connects New Jersey, US to the Jutland Peninsula of Denmark with a branch landing in County Mayo, Ireland.
Djibouti Telecom and its partners have announced that the supply contract for the Djibouti Africa Regional Express (DARE) submarine cable system has come into force, with TE SubCom as the supplier.
Due for completion by May 2017, the DARE submarine cable system will improve communications along the east coast and Horn of Africa. The 5,400km cable system will provide a high-capacity route connecting Djibouti to Mombasa in Kenya, with branches to three major coastal cities in Somalia (Mogadishu, Berbera, and Bosaso), and an optional branch to Tanzania.
Intercontinental Submarine Cable Enhancing Connectivity from the United States to Brazil is Now Complete
A consortium of six prominent telecom and content service providers – Amazon, Facebook, PLDT, NTT Communications, PCCW Global, and SoftBank – have signed an agreement to build a new transpacific submarine cable system connecting Japan, the Philippines and the United States.

Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
