Telstra, together with Ericsson and Ciena, has announced a new rapid restoration service on its busiest subsea cable routes in Asia, to help keep customers continuously connected.
The new continuous connection service combines the vast scale and diversity of Telstra’s subsea cable network, with flexible programmable infrastructure technology through Ciena’s GeoMesh Extreme solution.
Continuous connection builds on Telstra’s assured availability “Always on” service - a world first offering to key routes in Asia - which currently offers restoration within eight hours. Telstra’s new service will reduce that time from hours to minutes – a significant reduction to current restoration service arrangements in Asia.
Together with Ericsson, Ciena’s GeoMesh Extreme solution increases the intelligence of Telstra’s leading subsea network, enabling rapid responses to changing network demands, all without manual intervention.
The technology solution provides increased visualisation over Telstra network, boosting resiliency, and providing the flexibility and agility to give customers fast, reliable data access.
