Case Study

The Challenge

Installing a 6,900 km undersea cable system connecting Sydney and Guam, on time and on budget.

Situation

When the PPC-1 cable system was completed, PIPE Networks and SubCom accomplished what many in the industry doubted could be done: installing a 6,900 km undersea cable system connecting Sydney and Guam, on time and on budget. 

Solution

With its capacity of 2.56 terabits per second over two fiber pairs, 40 Gbs/sec capabilities and built-in extra branching units and fiber pairs for future use, PPC-1 will undoubtedly serve Australia robustly and reliably for many years to come. 

Right from the RFP process, we knew SubCom was the right supplier for the project.
