Google announced plans for a new trans-Atlantic cable project, named Dunant, in partnership with TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company specialising in undersea communication systems. Spanning 6,400 km from Virginia Beach to the French Atlantic coast, the private cable will support the growth of Google Cloud by adding network capacity across one of the busiest routes on the internet, said the company. As part of the project, TE SubCom will design, manufacture and lay the four fibre pair cable, which is expected to become operational in late 2020.
