The US and Japan launched a high-speed submarine trans-Pacific network

    Several companies announced the other day about the launch of a new long trans-Pacific network with a total bandwidth of 100 Gb / s. The total length of the lines of this network is more than 9,500 kilometers, and thanks to this indicator, the PC-1 submarine cable network can be considered the longest network with similar performance. PC-1 will now work by transmitting information across the Pacific. One of the goals of the project initiators is to connect the USA and Japan using a 100-gigabit network connection, which was done.

    The developers recently completed a trial test of the network, which showed excellent results. As mentioned above, network performance is 100 Gb / s. All this was made possible thanks to the use of Infinera FlexCoherent technology, using separate Infinera optical modules, as well as the Infinera DTN platform. The developers also reported that, among other technologies, BPSK technology with automatic error correction has also been implemented.

    A published statement by the companies states that the throughput of such networks will continue to increase, as the number of Internet users is constantly growing, Internet services are improving, and the global network infrastructure must meet modern requirements. In Asia alone, over the past 11 years, the number of users has increased by almost 9 times, from 114 to 922 million people. It is clear that all this really requires the use of a new type of network technology.

    In addition, telecommunications companies have long been trying to use network technologies that can work with "heavy" content, including video in HD-quality. Now, one of the largest sources of traffic is services like YouTube from Google, with more than a few billion videos viewed daily.
