Global interconnection and data center company Equinix Inc (NASDAQ:EQIX) today announced that RTI Connectivity Pte. Ltd. has selected Equinix IBX data centers to extend their connectivity solutions in Tokyo, Japan, and Sydney, Australia.

RTI’s transpacific submarine cable systems are the newest secure long-haul routes interconnecting the Asia-Pacific region and Australia via Guam. The design of the cable systems is poised to improve latency between these continents, while also greatly reducing provisioning timeframes.

Equinix explains that hyperscale cloud providers and enterprise companies are fueling data growth between the Asia-Pacific region and Australia. These customers require alternative paths, enhanced quality of service and cost-effective bandwidth solutions.

RTI selected Equinix IBX data centers due to the company’s expertise in delivering and managing cable landing stations and its access to dense, rich ecosystems of networks, clouds, and financial and IT service providers. Equinix also provides a neutral landing point for submarine cable operators, reducing their costs and time to deploy by simplifying operations at a neutral location.

RTI and its affiliates will soon be completing construction on several new high-fibre capacity cables that will land on Guam. Equinix termination points that are currently live include the following two cable routes:

  • Japan-Guam-Australia South Cable System (JGA South) connecting Sydney and Guam with termination into Equinix SY4 IBX in Sydney and with a branch to Australia’s Sunshine Coast.
  • Japan-Guam-Australia North Cable System (JGA North) connecting Tokyo and Guam with termination into Equinix TY2 IBX in Tokyo.

RTI’s transpacific cable systems will further enhance and contribute to the expansion of communications networks from the Asia-Pacific region and Australia, thereby improving network redundancy, ensuring reliable communications and expanding onward connectivity options in Guam. With direct access to JGA South and JGA North in Australia and Japan, Equinix provides its customers with the ability to connect and expand business in both Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

At present, Equinix IBX data centers are subsea enabled in 36 metros around the world.
