CenturyLink Utilizes Aqua Comms’ AEConnect Subsea Link

CenturyLink has activated two 100 Gigabit waves of high capacity connectivity between New York and London on Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system.

The provisioning of secure and reliable capacity on the next-generation subsea fibre optic network will support CenturyLink’s U.S. to Europe broadband traffic.

“The circuits Aqua Comms has provided to CenturyLink from New York City to London are lit Point of Presence (PoP) to PoP with no intermediate or cable landing station regeneration,” said Aqua Comms chief technology officer Tom McMahon. “Traversing over 6,800 kilometers, the high capacity transatlantic route includes diverse terrestrial segments on both ends, enabling CenturyLink to provision end-to-end high capacity connectivity without regeneration, utilising advanced modulation techniques.”

“This is a major milestone for CenturyLink’s international network. We now can control the provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting of end-to-end connectivity between our U.S. network and any CenturyLink Point of Presence on our European network,” states CenturyLink senior vice president of Network Planning, Pieter Poll. “Our multinational customers require seamless connectivity to accommodate today’s key business applications and we’re confident that this new Aqua Comms AEConnect fibre optic cable system will provide an important link between two of the world’s most vital social and economic hubs.”
