Consumer and enterprise users will both be able to improve access to content and cloud services in and out of India due to IAX and IEX
Reliance Jio Infocomm, headed by Mukesh Ambani, is building the world's largest international submarine cable system focused on India. The broadband digital service provider is collaborating with many main global partners, and submarine cable supplier SubCom is presently installing two next generation cables to serve the region's data demand growth.
These systems, for the first time have put India at the centre of the international network map, acknowledging India's growing relevance, exponential rise in data usage since the launch of Jio services back in 2016.
The India-Asia-Xpress (IAX) system links India to Singapore and even beyond on, whereas the India-Europe-Xpress (IEX) system connects India to the Middle East and Europe.
In a statement the company said, "IAX and IEX will enhance the ability for consumer and enterprise users to access content and cloud services in and out of India."
Consumer and enterprise users will both be able to improve access to content and cloud services in and out of India due to IAX and IEX.
President of Reliance Jio, Mathew Oommen said, “Jio is at the forefront of India’s explosive growth in digital services and data consumption. To meet the demands of Streaming Video, Remote Workforce, 5G, IoT, and beyond, Jio is taking a leadership role in the construction of the first of its kind, India-centric IAX and IEX subsea systems.”
He further explained that implementing these vital policies in the midst of a global pandemic was difficult, however the pandemic only intensified the digital revolution and the need for elevated global connectivity to provide businesses and customers with a better experience.
For global service extension, the networks can easily interconnect as well as link to the world's top inter-exchange points and content hubs. These elevated high-speed networks can extend over16,000 kilometres and have more than 200 Tbps of capacity.
