Hawaiki Submarine Cable announced it has expanded its subsea network with a new direct route to Los Angeles, offering greater connectivity and route diversity to clients operating between Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

The new route - based on the most easterly segment of the SEA-US cable - completes Hawaiki’s existing links to the United States, including Hillsboro, Seattle and Hawaii. Los Angeles becomes Hawaiki’s third PoP on the US West coast.

In particular, this innovative architecture introduces a new ultra-low latency path between Sydney and Los Angeles, specifically designed to optimally support latency-sensitive applications such as online gaming and high-frequency trading.

“As demand for capacity continues to rise sharply, customers are constantly looking for versatile connectivity solutions. This expansion marks an important milestone for Hawaiki as it both strengthens our position in the US market and greatly enhances our network flexibility,” said Hawaiki CEO, Remi Galasso.

“It also provides our customers with powerful new options in terms of capacity products, delivery points and route diversity.”

Launched in July 2018, the Hawaiki transpacific cable is a 15,000 km fibre optic deep-sea, carrier-neutral cable with a design capacity of 67 Tbps. Hawaiki is the fastest and largest capacity link connecting Australia and New Zealand to Hawaii and the mainland United States.

Hawaiki Submarine Cable, headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, owns and operates the Hawaiki submarine cable system (Hawaiki). Hawaiki is the first and only carrier-neutral submarine cable linking Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and the U.S. west coast.

Hawaiki has consistently been working on partnerships for their submarine cable and this is just the latest in a string of announcements from the company.
