Orange, the global telecommunications operator, has announced that it will work with Google to develop its 6,600-kilometer Dunant submarine cable system that connects the US and French Atlantic coasts.
Orange said it will build and operate a landing station on the French Atlantic coast and provide a return service to Paris. Orange, the global telecom operator, will benefit from a pair of fiber pairs with a capacity of more than 30 Tbp / s, which means that 1 GB of movies can be transferred in 30 microseconds.
Not only that, the investment in submarine cable projects will enable Orange to increase its network capacity to meet the growing demand for data and content between Europe and the United States. Orange will be able to support consumer and corporate customers in Europe and the United States to develop new uses.
Dunant will be the first new submarine cable to connect the US and France in 15 years. Dunant Cable is part of the Google infrastructure investment including the Curie Submarine Cable Project, which is the first private intercontinental cable connecting Chile and Los Angeles.
According to Orange, the 6,600-kilometer-long cable is expected to be operational by 2020, and the company will build and operate a landing site on the French Atlantic coast and provide land connectivity.
