Quintillion to Begin Subsea Cable Laying in July

Quintillion will start laying subsea cable offshore Alaska’s Nome coast in the first week of July, Alaskan media informed.

Quintillion’s vice president of external affairs, Kristina Woolston, said: “We actually are going to start a little bit early here in Nome than what we had thought because we have a vessel available and we also have some great open water.”

The cable, whose onshore laying started in March this year, will have the capacity of at least 10 terabits-per-second (Tbit/s) per fiber pair.

It will consist of three fiber pairs capable of carrying 100 wavelengths, each of which can support 100 gigabits-per-second of data capacity.

The Phase 1 of the cable will link Nome, Kotzebue, Wainwright, Point Hope, Barrow, and Prudhoe Bay and will provide for future extensions to Asia and Europe.
