Tata Communications Extends Connectivity Into AustraliaTata Communications today announced that it will start delivering capacity into Australia via the privately owned PIPE Pacific 1 (PPC-1) cable system.

PPC-1 is a new two-fiber-pair cable system connecting the US territory of Guam to Sydney, Australia.  The cable system spans 6,900 km and can provide up to 2.56 Terabits per second of capacity to the rapidly growing Australian market.

“The partnership between Tata Communications and PIPE Networks extends the PPC-1 cable system from Australia to the rest of the world, adding much-needed route diversity and carrier neutrality to this growing market. This extension to Australia from Asia through our partner PIPE Networks, comes just weeks after our announcement of our expansion into Africa via the SEACOM cable system.  We are pleased that our plans for global leadership in the submarine cable network have been pushed up another notch,” said Simon Cooper, Tata Communications’ Vice President for International Network Development.

PPC-1 introduces a new cost-effective high-speed connectivity option to and from Australia, and will enable diversity from the older generation AJC and Southern Cross cable systems.
