Hawaiki Submarine Cable LP recently announced extending its US presence from Hillsboro, OR to the Westin Building Exchange (WBX) carrier hotel and data center in Seattle, WA to support its clients’ capacity requirements between New Zealand, Australia, and the United States. Hawaiki selected the Westin Building Exchange as its newest point of presence based upon the large number of global carriers, simplified connectivity options and available cloud services that have been the hallmark of the original transpacific, terabit fiber hub on the U.S. West coast. Through this partnership with the Westin exchange, Hawaiki expands its reach in the US and provides PoP to PoP capacity between Sydney, Auckland and Seattle to its customers.

“Choosing the WBX in Seattle was a natural but strategic decision for us,” said Remi Galasso, Chief Executive Officer, Hawaiki. “With over 250 carriers, cloud and content providers within their ecosystem we could not have found a more ideal location.”

One of the leading data center and colocation facilities in the world, the Westin Building Exchange (WBX) provides neutral connectivity points to Asian, Canadian, European, and American network service providers, carriers, and ISPs, in addition to access to the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX) and the Pacific Northwest Gigapop (PNWGP).
