– Ilissa Miller, CEO, iMiller Public Relations, says:
The global demand for bandwidth is skyrocketing. From Asia-Pacific to North America, end-users now need to transmit data faster than ever before. In fact, by 2017, worldwide IP traffic will expand to 1.4 Zettabytes per year – representing a compound annual growth rate of 23 percent over a five-year span, from 2012-2017 (according to Pacnet’s Press Release).
In response to this ever-increasing bandwidth demand, Hong Kong-based data center provider Pacnet is pleased to reveal that it is upgrading its service capabilities to provide businesses with the quickest and most efficient connection solutions possible. On October 29, Pacnet announced the deployment of an optical mesh network that will run at speeds of 10Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps from Asia to the United States over EAC Pacific fiber optic cables fully integrated with Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching capabilities.
The company is now the first carrier to offer network speeds of up to 100Gbps between Asia-Pacific and the U.S. thanks to its undersea and land-based system of fiber optic cables and backhaul links. Furthermore, its EAC-C2C network is now the largest private subaqueous fiber network, spanning 36,800 km. This network provides customers with increased resiliency through its diverse selection of routes. Additionally, Pacnet offers the EAC Pacific network that runs 9,620 km throughout the Pacific Ocean.
According to Pacnet Chief Technology Officer Andy Lumsden, the new upgrade will provide increased bandwidth capacity and scalability options necessary for facilitating mission-critical operations throughout the Asia-Pacific region. As a result of Pacnet’s upgrade, customers will receive a comprehensive suite of network services that will provide access to a web of data centers located across 14 cities throughout Asia-Pacific. This includes locations in Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore. Additionally, the upgrade will provide OTN and Ethernet interfaces at a location for the amplification, grooming, multiplexing, and switching of data streams.
