Google Choses Equinix for Curie Subsea Cable Landing Station

Google has selected Equinix for its Los Angeles area cable landing station (CLS) supporting the Curie subsea cable system, linking Los Angeles, California to Valparaiso, Chile.

In the U.S., the cable will land directly at the Equinix LA4 International Business Exchange (IBX) data center located in El Segundo, California.

The Curie cable is expected to go live in 2019.

The system will add dedicated capacity to Google’s global network, enabling interconnection to other infrastructure in the region.

Jim Poole, vice president, Business Development, Equinix, said: “With the significant increase in global data traffic, we see corporations running global businesses demanding access to high-capacity, low-latency networks capable of connecting them to data centers across oceans with stringent levels of reliability. Any user of a subsea cable system that lands inside one of our Equinix global data center termination points has instant, low-latency access to a host of vibrant industry ecosystems inside Equinix, and that’s a huge advantage.”

The level of global data traffic is expected to reach 3.3 zettabytes by 2021, and almost every byte touches a subsea cable as cloud service providers, network service providers, content providers and enterprises push to move data globally in real time.
