Google on Friday announced a new subsea cable dubbed “Equiano”. That cable will connect Africa with Europe, as it boosts its cloud computing infrastructure. Equiano, fully funded by Google, is the company’s third private international cable. The search engine giant. Google has invested $47 billion in improving its global technology. The infrastructure planned from the last three years said Equiano. This is the company’s 14th subsea cable investment on world wide level.
“Equiano will be the first subsea cable to incorporate optical switching at the fiber-pair level. The traditional approach of wavelength-level switching, Google said in a blog post. Google’s third undersea network cable will shuttle high-speed data. This is from Portugal to South Africa and countries in between starting in 2021. A fiber-optic line called Equiano-company. The fiber-optic line is part of Google’s massive investment in computing infrastructure. The bigger project invest $47 billion over the last three years. A digital colossus, needs to push immense quantities of information among its data centers scattered all around the world. And with operations like Cloud, Handles the data needs for many other companies, too.
Google’s project more information
Google has an ownership stake in 14 subsea cable projects. Now Equiano is the third owned subsea cable. The one are Curie. This is stretching from Los Angeles to Chile and Dunant. This is stretching from the eastern United States to France. The cable uses a new data-pumping technique, called fiber-level switching, designed to transfer information more economic, Google said. The long range fiber optic cables with four or six pairs of fiber optic lines. This fiber optic lines divided data by sending different wavelengths of light colors to each destination. Each fiber-optic pair can transfer data on 60 different wavelength channels.
Google’s fiber-level switching uses 12 pairs or more of fiber-optic lines and devotes entire pairs to each destination. “This fiber-level switching results in a more compact, cost-effective and power-effective switching solution,” Google said.
