History

Telstra announced that the cable would connect Sydney and Hawaii with a 9,000 km link, the largest ever built and owned by an Australian company, providing a transmission capacity of 1.28 terabit/s to Hawaii. The cable will be linked to others from Hawaii to the US mainland. The manufacture and laying of the cable was the responsibility of Alcatel-Lucent, which also supplied Telstra's two cables across Bass Strait and its Tasman Sea (TASMAN 2) cable. Alcatel-Lucent is basing this turn-key project on the "Alcatel 1620 Light Manager"[1] submarine line termination equipment that uses dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM). No cost was revealed, however it is estimated around $300 million (AUD).
