With an ultimate design capacity of 80 Terabits-per-second, the PCCS submarine network dramatically boosts connectivity and substantially increases the availability of broadband services. PCCS is C&W Networks fourth international submarine cable landing in the USA, and its third in Florida. This new system further enhances C&W Networks ongoing commitment for ecosystem diversity and industry leading network resiliency. PCCS is a state of the art, Multi-100 per second network with enormous scalability. “We are very excited to be part of this new submarine cable system. It allows us to provide our carrier customers more traffic routing possibilities, ensuring complete geo-route diversity to the U.S. East Coast. Besides, additional ring diversity, PCCS also provides a new, geographically diverse cable landing in the US at Jacksonville as an added layer of redundancy and network interconnection” says Scott.
