【谷歌透露计划建造三条新的海底互联网电缆】在Google云平台副总裁的博客中,他透露将建三条新的海底电缆,新增五个地区。海底电缆包括:Curie,一条连接智利和洛杉矶的私人电缆; Havfrue,连接美国和丹麦、爱尔兰的联合电缆; 还有香港 - 关岛电缆系统,这是一个连接亚洲主要海底通信枢纽的联合电缆。据研究人员介绍,新的超大容量系统能够支持亚洲和北美之间同时进行8000万次高清视频电话会议,带来更快的速度和更高的安全性。

Google reveals plan to build THREE new undersea internet cables and add five regions to its expanding cloud service

  • Netherlands and Montreal will open first, followed by LA, Finland, Hong Kong
  • Google plans to commission the three subsea cables in 2019, internet giant said
  • Includes: Curie, connecting Chile to LA; Havfrue, for US to Denmark and Ireland
  • Will also be Hong Kong-Guam Cable system, interconnecting major Asian hubs

Alphabet Inc’s Google said on Tuesday it would add five regions and build three new submarine cables as it expands its infrastructure for cloud customers.

The company, which has invested $30 billion in infrastructure over the past three years, said its Netherlands and Montreal regions will open in the first quarter of 2018, followed by Los Angeles, Finland, and Hong Kong.

Google plans to commission the three subsea cables in 2019, the internet giant said in a blog post.

The subsea cables include: Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the United States to Denmark and Ireland; and Hong Kong-Guam Cable system, a consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia

PLCN SUBSEA CABLE

In October 2016, Google announced it would be building an 8,000-mile undersea cable across the Pacific Ocean by 2018.

The PLCN will stretch from Los Angeles to Hong Kong.

It is an ultra high-capacity system, capable of 120-terabits-per-second.

This is twice the capabilities of the Faster cable, which connects the US to Japan.

The team says it would be able to support 80 million simultaneous HD video conference calls between Asia and North America.

 The subsea cables include: Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the United States to Denmark and Ireland; and Hong Kong-Guam Cable system, a consortium cable interconnecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia.

Subsea cables form the backbone of the internet by carrying more than 90 percent of the world’s data traffic.

The companies setting up the cables include TE SubCom, a unit of NYSE-listed TE Connectivity Ltd, and Tokyo-listed NEC Corp, Google said.

The company said it has direct investment in 11 cables, including those planned or under construction.

The announcement comes two years after the internet giant revealed its 8,000 undersea cable connecting Los Angeles to Hong Kong would be built across the Pacific Ocean by 2018.

Google says it would add five regions and build three new submarine cables as it expands its infrastructure for cloud customers. Its Netherlands and Montreal regions will open in the first quarter of 2018, followed by Los Angeles, Finland, and Hong Kong.

For the project, Google teamed up with Facebook, Pacific Light Data Communication, and TE SubCom to construct a system that’s twice as powerful as the record-holding Faster cable that went live in June, which was said to be 10 million times quicker than a modem.

According to the researchers, the new ultra high-capacity system would be able to support 80 million simultaneous HD video conference calls between Asia and North America, and will bring faster speeds and increased security.

Plans for the Pacific Light Cable Network (PLCN) were first announced on the Google Cloud Platform Blog.

The cable would be the highest capacity trans-Pacific system, with a capacity of 120 terabits-per-second, and is the sixth undersea cable the Google has taken part in.

‘From the get-go, PLCN is designed to accommodate evolving infrastructure technology, allowing us to independently choose network equipment and refresh optical technology as it advances,’ the Google team wrote.

‘Most importantly, PLCN will bring lower latency, more security, and greater bandwidth to Google users in the APAC region.’

Another subsea cable system can deliver 60 terabits per second of bandwidth 5,600 miles across the ocean, bringing high speed connection to users in the US and Japan. It has landing points in Oregon, in the US, and Chiba and Mie, in Japan

Along with this, the firm says it will expand Google’s reach in Asia for Google Cloud and G Suite users.

Just months prior, Google revealed the completion of its subsea cable system that stretches from the United States to Japan.

The $300 million ‘Faster’ cable system is backed by six companies, including Google, and runs through the Pacific Ocean from Oregon to Chiba and Mie.

The system currently has a greater total capacity than any other undersea cable, Google SVP of Technical Infrastructure Urs Hölzle revealed in a blog post.

It can deliver 60 terabits per second of bandwidth 5,600 miles across the ocean, bringing high speed connection to users in the US and Japan.
