Quintillion Selects Ciena for Phase1 – Alaska Subsea Network

Quintillion is deploying Ciena’s 8700 Packetwave Platform to support the first phase of its 15,000-kilometer intercontinental subsea fiber system that is planned to connect Europe and Asia by way of the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic.

Quintillion’s Phase1 network build in Alaska will connect Nome and Prudhoe Bay, with branches into four rural coastal communities: Barrow, Point Hope, Wainwright and Kotzebue.

Additionally, construction is underway for a new terrestrial fiber system between Prudhoe Bay and Fairbanks that will also provide a fiber link between the continental United States and the Arctic. Quintillion’s network is scheduled to be in service in 2017.

“Quintillion’s system will bring improved connectivity to underserved areas in Alaska, with plans to provide a vital alternate route for low-latency connectivity to and from the United States when subsequent phases are complete. Ciena’s 8700 and advanced software capabilities allow us to build a high-capacity and reliable network that can support our needs today and for years to come,” Matt Peterson, vice president Network Management, Quintillion.
