Hibernia Networks' Historic High-Capacity Trans-Atlantic Express Cable Deployment Marks a New Milestone:

Cable ships are now in the water Laying the fiber that will connect North America to Europe with the newest, fastest and highly reliable capacity.

Hibernia Networks, a provider of global telecommunications services, announces today that over 2,000km of armoured cable has been manufactured and loaded onto three cable-laying ships. The ships are now either laying or loading new, fast and high-capacity fiber optic cables. This is a historic milestone for global communications as Hibernia Networks’ Express cable will be the first modern fiber optic cable connecting North America to Europe in more than 12 years, catering to the need for additional, fast and high-performing global network capacity. Hibernia Express is on schedule for delivering service to high-bandwidth network operators, including carriers, global financial firms and technology companies, in September 2015.

In preparation for this historic cable-laying process, Hibernia Networks’ partner TE SubCom manufactured over 4,500km of cable with over 60 amplifiers; each amplifier alone weighs in at over 500 pounds. Special loading docks that could manage the weight of this equipment were utilized when bringing the cable system aboard SubCom’s three massive cable ships.

As for the cable itself, Hibernia Express utilizes a 6-fiber-pair submarine cable, with a portion of the fibers optimized for lowest latency and a portion optimized for 100X100 Gpbs design capacity. The total cross-sectional design capacity of the cable will be over 53 Tbps. Hibernia Express will initially launch with 100 Gbps transmission capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform.

Officers, engineers and crew, out to sea for the summer, are aboard three separate ships, laying the fiber along the shortest, pre-determined route to connect the two continents. The first cable ship will travel from Halifax, Nova Scotia to the south east of Newfoundland. The second cable ship begins in Brean, UK and travels to the west of the Porcupine Bank off the coast of Ireland. The third cable ship will start from the south east of Newfoundland and will connect to west of the Porcupine Bank and complete the final splice. The first cable ship will continue in transit over the Atlantic and connect the Irish branching unit to Cork, Ireland. By connecting the UK and North America in the straightest route possible, Hibernia Express will, without doubt, be the fastest route available and vastly improve upon existing cable systems’ latency by at least 5 milliseconds. Hibernia Networks is committed to serving customer needs for low latency connectivity between major city centers and financial hubs, integrating Hibernia Express with innovative backhaul technologies including RF.

“Having the cable laying ships in the Atlantic is a huge milestone for Hibernia Express,” said Bjarni Thorvardarson, CEO of Hibernia Networks. “This historic cable build has been a long time coming, and included arduous planning, financing, land and sea surveying and cable manufacturing. The process has required the hard work and determination of our entire team here at Hibernia Networks, the support of our investors and customers, and our top partners like TE SubCom, to allow us to see this project through to fruition. In a few short months, Hibernia Express will be ready for service and collectively, we will make history for deploying the highest capacity, lowest-latency trans-Atlantic cable connecting North America and the UK. We are excited and proud, not just for Hibernia Networks, but for the much-needed, fast and high-performance capacity we can bring to communications networks around the world.”

MakaiLay Suite Adds Features for Power Cable Installers

5MakaiThe new Heave Analysis tool for shallow water power cable lays accounts for vessel heave and ocean conditions (currents, water depth, seabed slope) to help installers understand impacts on the safety of the cable (bend radius and bottom tension). The tool is now available with MakaiLay Power (at-sea installation), and MakaiPlan Pro Power (in-office simulation/training).

Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. continues to address issues experienced by the subsea power cable industry by significantly enhancing the world’s leading submarine cable lay software, MakaiLay, and its desktop simulation sister product, MakaiPlan Pro. Specifically, three key features are being integrated into the Power Cable modules for each of these products that are built specifically for power cable installers:

1. Cable Top Angle. MakaiLay now has the option to use the cable departure angle, or “Top Angle”, which can be measured at the over-boarding point. When high quality measurements of top tension are not available, using the Top Angle enables Makai’s real-time cable model to calculate cable shape, touchdown and tension more accurately during shallow water power cable installations.

Makai has developed a new cable model that includes cable bending stiffness, which is now being used in two new tools: the Shape Calculator and the Heave Analysis tool.

2. Shape Calculator Tool. Allows the users to perform rapid static analyses of the cable shape under different lay conditions (currents, slopes, depths) to ensure bend radii and tensions are acceptable.

3. Heave Analysis Tool. Because power cables are laid with residual seabed tension, the cables’ bend radii and tension are sensitive to heave of the ship. The Heave Analysis tool allows users to perform analyses for different sea states and lay conditions (see Figure 1) to ensure that tensions and bend radii are within allowable limits. The tool can be used in office to design a safe lay, or at-sea to make fast decisions about the lay as conditions change and contingencies arise.

The core product, MakaiLay, accurately models the cable shape, bottom tension and touchdown location as it is installed on the seafloor. With a complete picture of cable conditions, operators can accurately control bottom tension and touchdown location, significantly reducing the time, cost, and risk of a lay. For power cable jobs in areas of transition from shallow to mid and deep-water, steep seabed slopes, and strong currents, it can become especially difficult to control the cable’s tension and bend radius at the seafloor, risking the safety of the cable. In these situations, MakaiLay’s cable control and navigation instructions become critical. The MakaiLay suite includes a route planning tool (MakaiPlan) and a simulating/training tool (MakaiPlan Pro), in addition to the real-time, at-sea tool for controlling cable deployment (MakaiLay). Power cable modules with a growing number of power-cable-specific features are available with each product

“These new power cable features reflect Makai’s commitment to making the MakaiLay suite the most comprehensive tool for power cable installations,” said Dr. Venkata Jasti, Makai’s engineer leading this development. “We are excited to see power cable installers adopting this tool. MakaiLay has been the industry standard for telecom lays for over 15 years, being used to successfully install well over 400,000 kilometers of cable – when it comes to proven subsea cable laying tools, why reinvent the wheel?”

Alcatel-Lucent Unveils Major Transformation for Undersea Cable Systems

Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks introduces industry-first 1620 SOFTNODE providing full scalability - from smallest upgrades to largest new systems - and enabling web scale connection.

Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks, the submarine cables subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU), is to enable undersea cable system operators to meet increased demand for capacity, connectivity and flexible data exchange with the introduction of a major innovation that will transform existing submarine line terminal assets.

ASN’s 1620 SOFTNODE is an industry-first platform that will enable the transmission of 240 terabit-per second (Tbit/s) on multiple fiber pairs. This will allow operators to open up the path to new data services, while extending their reach and creating long-haul economies of scale.

The 1620 SOFTNODE has been selected by GoTo Networks for the Australia West Express system, the first direct undersea cable between Australia, the Middle East and Africa. The platform’s capabilities were also demonstrated during a recent field trial conducted over the Africa Coast to Europe (ACE) system, which has been in service since December 2012. The field trial demonstrated a breakthrough transmission of 12.6 Tbit/s of data per fiber pair.

The 1620 SOFTNODE platform leverages the field-proven 1620LM submarine line terminal equipment, and will provide webscale connectivity between data centres and Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in different continents. Thanks to new and enhanced features, such as one single line card for variable bit rates, it will offer complete scalability from the smallest upgrades to the largest new systems, faster transmission speeds and a wider range of channel spacings on longer routes, maximizing capacity and flexibility over undersea systems of any reach.

Additionally, the 1620 SOFTNODE will optimize the footprint in the landing station as the new terminal equipment dimensions are reduced by as much as ten times, also reducing power consumption by a factor of 2-3 compared to previous generation SLTE technology.

Olivier Gautheron, Chief Technology Officer of Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks said: “New undersea plant is emerging offering larger spectrum and more fiber pairs to serve new data centers with ultra high capacity. At the same time, existing undersea plant designed with legacy technology needs to better support design capacity, connectivity and flexibility. By evolving the 1620 SLTE architecture to SOFTNODE, new and enhanced node configurations will provide more advantages over traditional submarine cable architectures both at node level and at system level.”

The flexibility offered by the proprietary spectrum engineering within SOFTNODE allows bit rates to be tuned according to each specific application -- for example 400G for regional use and 300G for transoceanic transit. The variable bit rates are optimized by using a single line card. While the single line card provides the flexibility to use 100, 200, 300 and 400 Gbit/s transmission, it also provides a full set of tools to further tune the transmission performance for any given link.

About the 1620 SOFTNODE

The innovative 1620 SOFTNODE incorporates additional flexibility to allow faster data speeds 100G/200G/300G/400G:

  • Distances up to 14,000km offering multi-PoP (point of presence) to multi-PoP network configurations with multi-degree nodes connected to more fibers.
  • Stepless tuning of optical transmission to extract the best capacity from the wet plant and dry plant via 48 software configurable submarine modulation formats.
  • A true gridless architecture providing the capability to tune any wavelength in the spectrum down to 33GHz with no fixed granularity.
  • Anticipates future evolutions to 400GbE and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).
  • Ability to transport any OTN and GMPLS connection.
  • Optimization of terrestrial backhaul networks by the reduction of the required number of fiber pairs to extend trans-oceanic capacity to inland PoPs and data centers.
  • One single card does it all for easy plug and play, with simplified installation and fast/dynamic provisioning.
