FiberSense and SX announce expansion of alliance with deployment of monitoring and protection capability on new NEXT submarine cable between AUS, NZ, USA and the Pacific Islands.

FiberSense and critical infrastructure owner Southern Cross Cable Network (“SX”) have announced a further expansion of the world leading subsea cable monitoring capability in FiberSense’s DigitalAsset™️ Marine. The announcement follows SX’s recent activation of their new Southern Cross NEXT (“NEXT”) submarine cable connecting Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the Pacific Islands. NEXT utilizes DigitalAsset™️ Marine coverage on the shore-end network, all the way from the cable landing station to the first repeater.

DigitalAsset™️ Marine technology operates over an “in-use” fiber pair allowing SX to utilise the full potential of the submarine cable for clients.

The rest of the submarine sector looks closely at innovations that the Pacific based cable operators are adopting and once again, SX is at the forefront of showing just what further protection measures are possible in operating this critical communications infrastructure.
