Alcatel-Lucent to upgrade Asia America Gateway submarine data link

30th September 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Alcatel-Lucent-logoParis, September 30, 2013: Alcatel-Lucent and Asia America Gateway have agreed to upgrade the Asia America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable system, covering the route from Philippines to the United States.

The 20,000km-long AAG system will add multi-terabit data capacity to cope with the increase in data traffic in countries along its route, by leveraging Alcatel-Lucent’s advanced coherent technology. The upgrade will also meet cloud service requirements in the region.

AAG connects Malaysia to the US via Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii and the US west coast. When it was launched in 2009, the Asia-America Gateway delivered the first terabit submarine cable network between south-east Asia and the US.

The new collaboration will upgrade the system to over 8 Tbit/s and further strengthen communications reliability over the Asia-US route.

Chairman of the AAG Management Committee Vito Pavone said: “This new investment in additional capacity on the AAG system will further help to address the persistent demand for anywhere, anytime broadband access. Alcatel-Lucent’s technology offers an adaptable solution to continue implementing our staged upgrade strategy to meet significant bandwidth increments over time, while protecting our investments in the subsea plant.”

President of Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks Philippe Dumont said, “We are pleased to help AAG operators allow quicker service acceleration to meet the expectations of their customers for high-quality broadband applications, storage and computing. Alcatel-Lucent’s unique solution delivers an easy means of scaling up to multi-terabit capacity, offering evolution for submarine line terminal equipment while combining technological and economic benefits.”
