Press Release
Thursday, February 07, 2013

TE SubCom completes a long-haul network upgrade to the Trans-Pacific Express (TPE) submarine cable system.

The upgrade to the 18,000 km system brings an increase of over 1 Tb/s of capacity to meet the dramatic increase in demand in the transpacific market.
 
Upon entering into service in 2008, the cable system was the first multi-terabit cable system to directly connect four countries/regions between North East Asia and North America to play a significant role in driving new development for intercontinental telecommunications. TPE links the U.S. (Nedonna Beach, Oregon) and Asia with five landing stations located in Chongming, Qingdao, Keoje, Tanshui, and Shin Maruyama and is owned by AT&T CORP., Chunghwa Telecom, China Telecom, China Unicom, KT, NTT Com, and Verizon Business.
 
"“The trans-Pacific, and more specifically Northern Asia, continues to see an explosion in demand for capacity and TE SubCom maintains our commitment to provide the largest cross-sectional capacity on long-haul networks,"” said Dr. Qian Zhong, Managing Director, TE SubCom. "“The TPE cable system was designed and implemented to be flexible and meet this demand. With our extensive resources and technical familiarity with the system and its route, we are able to complete an upgrade that best positions TPE to provide essential bandwidth to one of the fastest growing telecom markets in the world.”"
