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.
