In January 2012, through an agreement with Rostelcom, Russia's long-distance telecommunications operator, we began providing a 10Gbps wavelength service between Japan and Europe. Via the Russia-Japan Cable Network (RJCN) of undersea optical cables between Japan and Russia and Rostelcom's TEA and TEA2 optical cable networks between Russia and Europe, this service takes the shortest route between Japan and Europe. The result is high-volume content and real-time bidirectional communication at an affordable price.
