ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, USA — Quintillion, an Alaska-based telecommunications operator and leading provider of broadband connectivity infrastructure in the U.S. Arctic, today announced the hiring of Dr. Niiro Yasuhiko as Japanese Director of Japan to Washington State (JAWS) Trans-Pacific Cable System Project.

“We are delighted to partner with Dr. Niiro, an industry veteran whose distinguished and long-term experience in the submarine cable sector reinforces the geostrategic importance of the JAWS project. Dr. Niiro will strengthen both the strategic and tactical aspects of this project, establishing a strong partnership with the Japanese government as we begin to build our landing in Japan,” said Managing Director George Tronsrue.

Dr. Niiro will liaise for Quintillion with Japanese officials as the telecommunications company seeks to augment and diversify the current cable landing station and submarine cable infrastructure serving Japan.

“I look forward to advancing Quintillion’s efforts to provide a diverse, low-latency route between two of the world’s largest trading partners,” said Dr. Niiro.

As Quintillion’s strategic partner on the JAWS project, APTelecom is delighted to have Dr. Niiro join the team. “Dr. Niiro’s significant involvement in leading legacy Japan-US cable systems, such as the aging PC1, will provide unique insights and valuable access to major parties in Japan,” said Sean Bergin, co -Founder of APTelecom and Chairman of the Board of Governors at the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC).

The JAWS system proposed by Quintillion will have a capacity of 120 TB and is expected to begin construction in late 2022 or early 2023 with an expected service date of 2025. It will establish an Asian network serving the Japanese and Pan-Asian markets and will be the first trans-Pacific cable route submarine in over 20 years to connect to Washington State. This system will interconnect with the existing network in Alaska at existing points of presence in Seattle, Washington and Hillsboro, Oregon.
