Hawaiki Submarine Cable has extended its US presence from Hillsboro, OR to the Westin Building Exchange (WBX) carrier hotel and data center in Seattle, WA to support its clients’ capacity requirements between New Zealand, Australia and the United States.

Launched in July 2018, the Hawaiki transpacific cable is a 15,000 km fibre optic deep-sea, carrier-neutral cable with a design capacity of 67 Tbps.

Hawaiki selected the Westin Building Exchange based upon the large number of global carriers, simplified connectivity options and available cloud services that has been the hallmark of the original transpacific, terabit fiber hub on the U.S. West coast.

Choosing the WBX in Seattle was a natural but strategic decision for us,” said Remi Galasso, CEO, Hawaiki. “With over 250 carriers, cloud and content providers within their ecosystem we could not have found a more ideal location.”

Through this partnership, Hawaiki expands its reach in the US and provides PoP to PoP capacity between Sydney, Auckland and Seattle to its customers.

At WBX, we are simplifying access to carriers, companies, clouds, countries and continents,” said Michael Boyle, strategic planning director with WBX. “The reason organizations like Hawaiki establish a presence with the Westin Building Exchange is due to the availability of multiple, cost-effective connectivity options and direct access to all major carriers and cloud providers, located in our building.”
