Our world keeps changing, and the demands facing global business and IT are more complex than ever. To meet some of these demands, KDDI America announces the completion of the RJCN (Russia-Japan Cable Network.)
KDDI Corporation (KDDI) and Rostelecom signed an Agreement early last year for an upgrade and modification with Russia-Japan Cable Network (RJCN) and Transit Europe-Asia (TEA) in order to construct 10Gbps wavelength resources between Japan and Europe using the shortest route via Russia. RJCN/TEA route is 70-100msec shorter than the Indian Ocean route and 45-60msec shorter than the US/Atlantic Ocean route. The RJCN upgrade was completed in January 2012.
KDDI has closely cooperated with Rostelecom Operation team to improve the network quality and has been operating at 100% availability on IPLC service between London and Tokyo (total length 10,000km or over 6,200 miles).
This high quality broadband network connects Tokyo and Europe with the shortest distance. It is the best solution to address various demands such as low latency transmission and two-way real-time communications. The network will be ideal for large capacity contents delivery including video transmission service supporting broadcast of various events in Europe and Africa. RJCN was not affected by the earthquake in Japan because this cable is laid in the Sea of Japan. The cable has contributed to customers' demand for core backbone towards Europe and the U.S. This network will continuously play an important role to provide customers with cable diversity.
