- Incorporating the FiberSense capability will provide real time and absolute awareness on the status of the physical fibre asset from external forces, yielding a remarkable level of security that other providers could not offer.
- HyperOne would involve 20,000+ kilometres of fibre.
- HyperOne’s completion is expected “in probably late 2024,” according to Clarke.
HyperOne is proud to announce its integration of sensory technology. The national fibre network will be using vibration detection and ranging technology in protecting its infrastructure developed by FibreSense.
HyperOne announced during a summit, that it: “will be the only national backbone in Australia that will have this FibreSense capability.” And yes, it will be an Australian and world-first.
Sub.Co CEO Jim Clarke, one of the members of the CapitalB management team developing HyperOne, mentioned that incorporating the FiberSense capability will provide real time and absolute awareness on the status of the physical fibre asset from external forces, and of anyone trying to physically interfere, intercept or touch the cable and the surrounding framework across the entire route, yielding a remarkable level of security that other providers could not offer. Clarke said to the conference: “It is going to offer an unparalleled level of network awareness and security.”
Bevan Slattery, owner of CapitalB and chair of the VIDAR company, reportedly included Superloop, Southern Cross Cable Network, Basslink and Transgrid as development customers. Clarke then described the technology as “astounding”, and also added that, “It is going to be one of the most, I think, transformational technologies that’s ever come out of this country; certainly for a long time. And we’re so lucky to ensure that HyperOne will have that exclusive partnership with FiberSense.”
Clarke mentioned that infrastructure in Australia and Singapore that are protected by FibreSense had encountered over 30,000 events in the last three years, some of which were enhancements and basically advantageous events, but there were around 2,500 that were considered as “rogue” events.
He noted that, “The impact that this has on the stability of fibre networks, the security of fibre networks, the reliability of the fibre networks and the assets that support those fibre networks is unparalleled and is of huge importance to the customers that have FibreSense as a partner.”
Clarke mentioned that the HyperOne would involve 20,000+ kilometres of fibre. During the event, he said, “This is designed from the ground up with the hyperscale mindset in the fore-front of our decision making and our thinking, delivering this critical digital infrastructure to help enable the growth of the nation.”
It is expected to start building next year, and “maybe even if we get out of skates late this calendar year. The early focus will be on some key intercapital routes,” he said. “We’re not wedded to that and working with some of our key partners, our key stakeholders, there’s nothing necessarily stopping us from starting all of the routes at the same time,” he added.
HyperOne’s completion is expected “in probably late 2024,” according to Clarke. It aims to differentiate itself from other competitor legacy networks through its FibreSense capability, which they claim to be a ten-fold capacity advantage.
