RETN Taps Aqua Comms’ AEConnect to Deliver Transatlantic Connectivity

RETN, a provider of international data transmission services, has partnered with Aqua Comms, the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, to deliver transatlantic capacity on Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system.

This cooperation enables RETN to obtain additional route diversity and expand its cross-border network to North America.

“Aqua Comms is pleased that RETN has selected AEConnect, our next-generation fibre-optic cable system, to provide transatlantic connectivity for the company’s backbone network,” states Nigel Bayliff, chief executive officer of Aqua Comms.

Offering diversity between two of the major international hubs, this highly secure and technologically advanced transatlantic system is also future-proofed against increased capacity requirements, a demand that only AEConnect, and not legacy systems, can satisfy.”

“The integration of Aqua Comms’ AEConnect cable in our backbone allowed us to establish new low latency connectivity between New York and London, and thus significantly expand our network’s reach while ensuring the scalability and high performance necessary to meet our own business objectives as well as our clients’ needs,” comments Tony O’Sullivan, chief operating officer at RETN. “Working with Aqua Comms has been a revelation in terms of delivery times and flexibility. RETN prides itself on its ability to turn up services in previously unheard of timeframes and in Aqua Comms we have found a transatlantic partner that can match us. This has allowed us to match our customer guarantees on both sides of the Atlantic.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
