A New Way of Building Subsea Networks

An Interview with Tom McMahon, CTO of Aqua Comms

Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) represents not only a new transatlantic cable, but also a new way of building networks – data center to data center, instead of cable landing station to cable landing station. Interconnecting metro networks and designed to address the rise in demand for transatlantic data center interconnectivity (DCI), Aqua Comms has incorporated the most important data center locations in New York, Dublin, and London as key Points of Presence (PoPs) into its system. Additionally, AEConnect offers customers an alternative route from New York to London via Dublin, end-to-end encryption, demonstrating the ability to safeguard all data at the optical layer, and a level of resilience that is unmatched by any other transatlantic subsea cable.
