Hawaiki partners Hawaiian Telcom on Sydney-Guam-Hawai‘i-LA route
Hawaiki Submarine Cable has entered an agreement with Hawaiian Telcom, securing significant international capacity on the Southeast Asia - United States (SEA-US) cable.
This ‘milestone’ that sees Hawaiki secure capacity on the SEA-US Guam to Los Angeles route, coupled with recently-acquired capacity on JGA-South cable from Sydney to Guam, enables Hawaiki to expand its subsea network with a new route linking Sydney, Guam, Hawai‘i and Los Angeles.
“This expansion announced today marks a new milestone for Hawaiki, greatly increasing both our reach within the Pacific region and the flexibility of our industry-leading network infrastructure,” said Remi Galasso (pictured), CEO at Hawaiki.
“Thanks to the great work we’ve been able to do with our valued Pacific-partner, Hawaiian Telcom, we’re now able to provide our customers with powerful new options in terms of capacity products, delivery points and route diversity.”
The expanded configuration announced complements Hawaiki’s existing express link with a redundant path between Australia and the US, including diverse landings in Oregon and California.
This will allow Hawaiki to bolster its portfolio of capacity services to the US, including Hillsboro, Seattle, Hawai‘i, Los Angeles and now Guam, enabling customers to cost-effectively procure multiple segments of trans-Pacific capacity via a single interface.
“We’re pleased to support another provider by offering capacity to Hawaiki, enabling them to offer more diversity and service options to their customers,” said Gary Peddicord, vice president of carrier services at Hawaiian Telcom.
“Our trans-Pacific network and terrestrial network in Hawai‘i complement other carrier’s systems to allow connectivity not only in Hawai‘i but throughout the Pacific Basin.”
In June, Hawaiki confirms went live with a crucial upgrade to its Oregon point-of-interconnect on the US West Coast.
Deploying Ciena’s GeoMesh submarine network solution using Waveserver Ai, Hawaiki can create a more efficient and cost-effective link from Hawaii.
