Google is investing in another huge undersea fiber-optic cable as part of its own strategies to build out network connectivity all over the world. The organization announced Wednesday that it’s helping finance a project called Indigo, that will link one another and Singapore, Jakarta, Perth and Sydney.
The cable will run for about 9,000 kilometers (nearly 5,600 miles) and supply a capability of about 18Tbps (bits per second). It is being constructed to bring users connectivity in an area that’s growing web demands.
By investing in these cables, the firm expects to compete with consumer internet companies and other cloud suppliers.
The cable will be built by Alcatel Submarine Networks, and Google anticipates it to be completed by the middle of 2019. Other Indigo investors comprise ISPs AARNet and cable company SubPartners, Indosat Ooredoo, Singtel and Telstra.
Just Google and the other investors will soon have the capacity to utilize Indigo, though Singtel and Telstra is going to have the capacity to sell capability as a piece of their telecom businesses to their clients.
Indigo ’s about 9,000-kilometer jog places it on par with the span of QUICKER. It is that long partially due to the arch course it must take to join the four cities along its span.
