Google is building its 2nd personal subsea cable
Google on Tuesday announced it’s creating a personal subsea cable from Virginia Beach in the usa into the French Atlantic shore — 1st private transatlantic cable built by a non-telecom company. The cable, called Dunant, is expected becoming available in late 2020.
This marks Bing’s twelfth subsea cable investment but just its 2nd personal one. Early in the day in 2010, the company revealed it really is creating Curie, an exclusive cable linking Chile to Los Angeles.
The addition of Dunant will provide Google unique network capability across among the busiest roads on the net. Creating a private cable provides a few benefits, Bing explained: It guarantees adequate ability and connectivity for Bing Cloud customers for many years, plus it allows Bing to select a route that gives the cheapest latency.
At the same time, Google in addition plans to keep investing in consortium cables. Its previous consortium cable investments are the Japan-Guam-Australia (JGA) cable system, the Havfrue cable connecting the US to Denmark and Ireland, while the Hong Kong-Guam cable that connects significant subsea interaction hubs in Asia.
Google is working together with TE SubCom to design, manufacture and put the cable for Dunant.
In other Google Cloud news, Bing revealed early in the day in the week that its la region has gone real time, making it Bing’s seventeenth region overall and fifth in america.
