During our visit to the HALO demo in Corvallis we were told 
that HP has their own dedicated fiber optic network.  They 
said in case of a break in a cable it was possible to 
reconfigure to go around the the world in the other 
direction for a quick fix.

Did anyone get information on the route of HP's HALO network?

Note the fat bundle going from Miami to Puerto Rico.

   Beta News reports that 3 undersea cables carrying a huge
   amount of Internet traffic for the Middle East and South
   Asia were cut within 40 minutes of each other, resulting
   in large outages in several countries.
