The Southern Cross Network consists of two separate submarine cable paths laid over diverse routes between Australia and the United States West Coast. The ‘Northern’ route links Australia, Fiji, Hawaii and the US Mainland, while the ‘Southern’ route links Australia, through New Zealand, to Hawaii and on to the US Mainland.

High capacity, secure fibre optic connections link each of the cable landing stations in the common jurisdictions, such as Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and the US West Coast. Fiji has a single landing station.

The network is logically configured as three separate rings, a ‘North Ring’, ‘South Ring’ and ‘North-South’ Ring each with self-healing capability. Southern Cross’ products and services are then made available over these logical rings, with Protected services utilising the underlying network self-healing capabilities.
