1 AICTEC 30 November February 2002 East-West Center University of Hawaii, Honolulu Connections to Europe from the Pacific Rim George McLaughlin & Markus Buchhorn

2 Europe and the Pacific Rim Currently almost all Internet traffic to Europe from the western and southern sides of the Pacific Rim transits via North America – even though most of the countries involved are well to the west of the International Date Line and closer to Europe going west For Singapore and Western Australia (for example) the distance going west to Europe is around half of that going east via North America A western route to Europe from the Pacific Rim also provides enhanced access to South Asia and the Middle East and would enhance the GTRN

3 What are the barriers? Cost There is significant competition across the northern Pacific and northern Atlantic oceans– much less to date on the southern parts of these oceans and across the Indian ocean – costs are likely to drop significantly as new cables are deployed Performance The current cables – though only deployed in the last few years, do not have the capacity of the newer trans-Pacific cables – this will change as new cables are deployed Routing Not the same ocean expanses as for the Pacific and Atlantic – routing may be less than optimal
