Pacnet to Add 100G Wholesale Bandwidth, Business Services

Asia-Pacific service provider Pacnet is planning to deploy an optical mesh network with 100Gbps technology and integrated Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching across its subsea fiber-optic cable network EAC-C2C. For its resellers and wholesale carrier partners, the upgrade expands transport options to support for high-bandwidth business applications.

“The increase in network capacity will significantly improve the efficiency of data transmission across regional network routes and allow Pacnet to extend and expand its Carrier Ethernet and virtual private-line service capabilities,” Andy Lumsden, CTO of Pacnet, in a statement. β€œThe upgraded core network will also provide for high-bandwidth connections with speeds up to 100G [as] demanded by large carrier and enterprise customers.”

Enabling greater efficiency and capacity management flexibility, the new backbone integrating subsea fiber-optic network infrastructure and terrestrial backhaul links will support pure packet transport technology in the optical core, in addition to the DWDM/SDH technologies currently used by the existing core network. The upgrades are scheduled to begin in early 2013.

“With the rapid intra-Asia digital content growth continuing to fuel soaring bandwidth demands in the region, this latest initiative is a significant step in strengthening our network services to handle the continued growth of Internet traffic,” said Lumsden. “We are committed to making our infrastructure more agile and efficient, providing a competitive edge for our customers in a rapidly evolving market.”

EAC-C2C is a fiber-optic submarine cable network in Asia, spanning 36,800 km with cable landing stations throughout the region including Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines and China.
