Trident will provide telecommunication services to the South East Asian and Western Australia markets, providing high quality robust telecommunications for the mining, oil and gas industries as well as Government subscribers and other commercial users in the regions. These services will also include the provision of data centre co-location to the market in these areas.
The data centres will be connected via three main transmission route sections:
The Subsea Section: Trident will construct a new submarine cable from Perth to Onslow and onward (via a new branching unit) to Indonesia, where it will join an existing operational submarine cable – Matrix. Branching Units (BU) will be installed on the new section of the cable off Onslow, Australia and south of Sunda Straight, Indonesia.
The Terrestrial Section: A new terrestrial link will be constructed from Onslow to Karratha and Port Hedland following the North West Coast Highway. A data centre to be constructed in the Pilbara will provide high quality equipment hosting space for all providers to service the resources industry.
Future Expansions: Trident is examining expansion via passive subsea (servicing existing and future LNG service platforms) and terrestrially into the eastern Pilbara region.
