Today, we are announcing that Google has selected Equinix for its Los Angeles cable landing station (CLS) supporting the Curie subsea cable system, scheduled to go live in 2019. The Curie subsea cable system will land directly at the Equinix LA4 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center located in El Segundo, Calif.
Subsea cables are a major focus of the ongoing PTC ’18 conference. Equinix is here in Hawaii – led by Equinix’s Americas President Karl Strohmeyer– to participate in numerous panels as speakers or moderators, and to generally take on a thought leadership role in an industry that’s expanding in size and influence. Equinix is all-in on subsea cables, and our focus on delivering interconnection makes them essential to our future.
For most carriers and network and cloud service providers, the big question is: How do you compete in a world of next-gen telecom?
The new $300 million Hibernia Express cable is the first designed specifically for low latency, so it takes the most direct path possible across the ocean.
