It says the move is necessary to accommodate the growth of cloud-based data operators and to connect the increasing number of data centres managed by service and content providers.
Darrin Webb, COO of Telstra Global Enterprise and Services, said Telstra's 100G service was designed to scale easily and would also help deliver the connectivity and capacity needed to support market demand for larger bandwidth applications, including high definition video services and emerging ultra high definition TV.
The announcement comes a month after Telstra's acquisition of cable and data centre provider Pacnet, which has vastly increased Telstra's Asia Pacific and trans-Pacific cable capacity. The technology will be provided by cable vendor Infinera."1/19/2015 IRWire
