Press Release: Digital Realty Partners with AquaComms to Deliver Innovative Fiber Optic Systems

Andrew Baird
November 2, 2015

Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data center solutions, announced today that it is partnering with Aqua Comms Limited (AquaComms), a provider of scalable, subsea capacity-based network solutions, in deploying its new transatlantic fiber optic system, America Europe Connect (AEConnect).

The transatlantic fiber optic system, which spans more than 5,400km across the Atlantic Ocean, between Long Island and the west coast of Ireland, with stubbed branching units for future landings, is currently planned to be available in Digital Realty’s data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas by the end of 2015. Digital Realty plans to expand availability to its two other New York facilities, as well. The subsea cable features the latest coherent optical technology of 130 wavelengths x 100 Gpbs, per fiber pair.

“With AEConnect linking New York, Dublin and London,” said Anthony Rossabi, Digital Realty’s Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Strategy, “we are excited to be able to offer enterprises, carriers and mobile operators access to private network bandwidth between two of the largest commercial centers in the world.”
