Hawaiki Submarine Cable Secures Alaska Communications Deal

Hawaiki Submarine Cable, the New Zealand owner and developer of Hawaiki submarine cable system, has selected Alaska Communications as its landing and operating partner in Oregon.

Hawaiki will land its proposed 14,000 km trans-Pacific cable between Australia, NewZealand, Hawaii and the U.S. West Coast in Pacific City, Oregon.

Following the completion of the marine survey of the 4,000 km segment between Pacific City and Honolulu, Hawaiki has achieved another key milestone of the system deployment by securing its Oregon operations through a Landing Party Agreement with Alaska Communications.

“Oregon is probably the best state on the U.S. West Coast to land a submarine cable. The coast is relatively safe, the state permitting process is efficient and most importantly, our customers like Oregon’s diversity and easy access to U.S. networks and data centers.

“We are pleased to have a long-term partnership with Alaska Communications, who understands our customers’ requirements in terms of system performance and quality of service,” said Gina Bohreer, senior vice president North America of Hawaiki.

“As part of the U.S.permitting process for international submarine cable, Hawaiki has subsequently submitted its application to the Federal Communication Commission.”

“Hawaiki and Alaska Communications are both committed to the highest quality and reliability standards. Today, Alaska Communications manages two geographically diverse,submarine cables between Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. We have leveraged our expertise in submarine cable operations to provide landing station and network management capabilities to several other Trans Pacific submarine systems. Now, we are pleased to extend our network managed service capabilities to Hawaiki and its Oregon landing station,” said Bill Bishop, senior vice president, business markets at Alaska Communications.
