Aqua Comms’ Next-Generation Fibre-Optic Cable System Provides the Backbone Between RETN’s New York and London Points of Presence

LONDON and DUBLIN – May 16, 2017 – RETN, a leading provider of international data transmission services, announces today its cooperation with Aqua Comms DAC ("Aqua Comms"), the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, to deliver transatlantic capacity on Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system. This cooperation enables RETN to obtain additional route diversity and expand its cross-border network to North America.

With more than 100 Tbps of designed capacity, AEConnect is a 100G compliant, coherent optimised system that utilises innovative optical technologies, including the latest technology of 130 x 100 Gbps per fibre pair. Transatlantic tests conducted over AEConnect validate the transmission of 8-QAM wavelengths running at 200 Gb/s, and 16-QAM wavelengths running at 250 Gb/s. RETN owns and operates a Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network distinguished by extensive coverage in Eastern Europe and Russia, which provides transboundary connectivity services across three continents and 29 countries.

“Aqua Comms is pleased that RETN has selected AEConnect, our next-generation fibre-optic cable system, to provide transatlantic connectivity for the company’s backbone network,” states Nigel Bayliff, Chief Executive Officer of Aqua Comms. “Offering diversity between two of the major international hubs, this highly secure and technologically advanced transatlantic system is also future-proofed against increased capacity requirements, a demand that only AEConnect, and not legacy systems, can satisfy.”

“The integration of Aqua Comms’ AEConnect cable in our backbone allowed us to establish new low latency connectivity between New York and London, and thus significantly expand our network’s reach while ensuring the scalability and high performance necessary to meet our own business objectives as well as our clients’ needs,” comments Tony O’Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer at RETN. “Working with Aqua Comms has been a revelation in terms of delivery times and flexibility. RETN prides itself on its ability to turn up services in previously unheard of timeframes and in Aqua Comms we have found a transatlantic partner that can match us. This has allowed us to match our customer guarantees on both sides of the Atlantic.”
