NTT soups up its Japan-US submarine connection

Responding to what it says is 'the heaviest data volumes handled by carriers with global IP backbones,' NTT is increasing its transmission speed to 300 Gbps on its Japan to U.S. global network route.

Since the traffic volume increases won't likely let up for quite a long time, the enhanced network speed will satisfy the ongoing demand for high-capacity transmission links between each country.

NTT's bandwidth increase on this network route follows its acquisition of Pacific Crossing, which operates the 21,000-km PC-1 cable connecting Japan and the U.S.
