RTI's transpacific submarine cable systems are the newest secure long-haul routes interconnecting the Asia-Pacific region and Australia via Guam. The unique design of the new cable systems will improve latency between these continents, while also greatly reducing provisioning timeframes.

Hyperscale cloud providers and enterprise companies are fueling data growth between the Asia-Pacific region and Australia. These customers require alternative paths, enhanced quality of service and cost-effective bandwidth solutions.

RTI selected Equinix IBX data centers due to the company's expertise in delivering and managing cable landing stations and its access to dense, rich ecosystems of networks, clouds, and financial and IT service providers. Equinix also provides a neutral landing point for submarine cable operators, reducing their costs and time to deploy by simplifying operations at a neutral location.
