Reliance Jio Infocomm (Jio), based in India, has launched the Asia-Africa-Europe (AAE-1) submarine cable system.
The AAE-1 will stretch over 25,000 km from Marseille, France to Hong Kong, with 21 cable landings across Asia and Europe.
With diversified Points of Presence (PoP) in Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore) and three onward connectivity options in Europe (via France, Italy and Greece), AAE-1 will provide the requisite flexibility and diversity for carriers and their customers, Jio said.
“The new terabit capacity and 100Gbps direct connectivity to global content hubs and interconnection points ensure that Jio will continue to offer its customers the most exceptional high speed internet and digital service experience,” said Mathew Oommen, president of Jio. “We are excited to participate in the launch and deliver the cable landing in Mumbai at the time when India’s data traffic continues its accelerated data consumption and growth.”
Jio also provides the network operations & management for AAE-1 cable system.
