Google Expands Under Ocean Cables To Improve Connectivity In Asia
Google is proving to the world that anything is possible as it has just activated it's under the ocean cables worth $300 million, spanning from the west coast of the U.S. to Japan, spanning over 5,000 miles. With this, Google has felt in faster speeds in the Asian continent thanks to the ambitious and seemingly impossible feat that the company is pushing through.
Despite the success that the under ocean cables of Google are experiencing, it still wanted to push the boundaries, furthering the span of cables under the ocean to provide even greater connectivity across Asia. The new cable networks will reach Taiwan, knowing that Google has its largest data center in Asia in that country.
The cable was specifically placed outside of tsunami zones, so it should also help prevent outages related to extreme weather conditions, according to a report from Venture Beat. Google, China Mobile International, China Telecom Global, KDDI, Global Transit, and Singtel have been working closely together in bringing the project to a successful reality.
What does the Google Under Ocean Network Mean for Asia?
If the project will prove to be a success throughout the years, then it would surely be considered as the world's fastest fiber optic undersea cable in the world. But the downside is that the cable extensions in Taiwan are inferior in speed when compared to the ones in the Pacific.
The U.S. to Japan network reaches speeds of up to 60 terabits per second, while the newer Taiwan connection network is only capped at 26 terabits per second.
Yan Tang, Google's network research APAC region leader says, "With more people coming online every day in Asia than anywhere else in the world, we've been working hard to invest in the infrastructure needed to make the internet work for all of us who live in the region."
