Google to open Montreal region offices in Q1 2018


Google has hatched a plan to build three submarine cable networks next year with an aim of getting a jump on its key competitors, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft. Google is also invested in Indigo which connects Australia, Indonesia, and Singapore, and PLCN which connects Hong Kong and Los Angeles, both of which will also enter service in 2019.

A "Curie" cable connecting Chile and Los Angeles will be the first intercontinental connection of its kind not owned by a telecom company, Sloss said.

Google is also working with Facebook, subsea network manufacturer Aqua Comms, and industrial group Bulk Infrastructure on the Havfrue cable, which will connect the US east coast to Denmark and Ireland. Over the past three years since Greene came on board, the company has spent a whopping $30 billion beefing up the infrastructure.

According to the researchers, the new ultra high-capacity system would be able to support 80 million simultaneous HD video conference calls between Asia and North America, and will bring faster speeds and increased security. Google boasts that it will be the first new cable to land in Chile in nearly 20 years and will serve Google customers across Latin America.

Along with this, the firm says it will expand Google's reach in Asia for Google Cloud and G Suite users.

Its "Curie" cable, named after legendary physicist Marie Curie, will run from Chile to Los Angeles and be privately owned by Google and its parent company, Alphabet. Google is developing this cable in partnership with Facebook, while it will be built by TE SubCom.

He later added, "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions". Katie Couric has spoken out about the allegations mounted against Matt Lauer , including one that made by her years ago.

"While we haven't hastened the speed of light, we have built a superior cloud network as a result of the well-provisioned direct paths between our cloud and end-users".

The Havfrue, which will connect the U.S. to Denmark and Ireland will come online by the end of 2019 is consortium run with Facebook, Aqua Comms and Bulk Infrastructure and will increase capacity in the North Atlantic systems.

Just months prior, Google revealed the completion of its subsea cable system that stretches from the United States to Japan.

HAVFRUE, taken from the Danish word for mermaid, is a consortium cable running across the Atlantic between New Jersey and Denmark.

Here, Google is beefing its European presence, while AWS recently announced further availability zones in its EU:London region and it shouldn't be too long before you see an announcement from Microsoft, IBM and the rest.
