Hawaiki Submarine Cable said it has expanded its subsea network with a new direct route to Los Angeles.
The new route – based on the most easterly segment of the SEA-US cable – completes Hawaiki’s existing links to the United States, including Hillsboro, Seattle and Hawaii. Los Angeles becomes Hawaiki’s third PoP on the US West coast.
In particular, this innovative architecture introduces a new ultra-low latency path between Sydney and Los Angeles, specifically designed to optimally support latency-sensitive applications such as online gaming and high frequency trading.
“As demand for capacity continues to rise sharply, customers are constantly looking for versatile connectivity solutions. This expansion marks an important milestone for Hawaiki as it both strengthens our position in the US market and greatly enhances our network flexibility,” said Hawaiki CEO, Remi Galasso.
“It also provides our customers with powerful new options in terms of capacity products, delivery points and route diversity.”
Launched in July 2018, the Hawaiki transpacific cable is a 15,000 km fibre optic deep-sea, carrier-neutral cable with a design capacity of 67 Tbps.
