Aqua Comms informed that PacketFabric has selected its America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable to extend the reach of its disruptive Software-defined Networking (SDN) platform into Europe.
Aqua Comms’ submarine cable system delivers connectivity from New York to Ireland with diverse backhaul fibre to additional Points of Presence (PoPs) in the US, Ireland and UK.
“Leveraging AEConnect to establish end-to-end high-capacity transatlantic connectivity extends the reach of our network to provide more customers with scalable, reliable and secure access to network and cloud environments in the US as well as internationally,” said William Charnock, CEO, PacketFabric. “AEConnect’s state-of-the-art technology allows PacketFabric to further future-proof our terabit-scale networking infrastructure as well as obtain additional route diversity for network reliability. The subsea cable system is a key part of our global connectivity strategy.”
As part of the strategic partnership, Aqua Comms also utilizes the PacketFabric platform to extend the reach of its service footprint across the US.
PacketFabric customers can now gain near-instantaneous access to transatlantic capacity on AEConnect from any location on its private and secure network, the company explained.
“We’re excited to partner with PacketFabric and help extend the international reach of its network with secure, low-latency connectivity via AEConnect,” said Andy Hudson, chief networks officer, Aqua Comms. “This mutually-beneficial partnership will also expand Aqua Comms’ North American footprint, enabling us to serve a wider range of customers across the continental United States.”
