Reliance Jio launches AAE-1 submarine cable system

MUMBAI: Reliance Jio Infocomm, the largest 4G and mobile broadband digital services provider in India, has launched the Asia–Africa–Europe (AAE-1) submarine cable system.

Due to its advanced design and route, AAE-1 provides one of the lowest latency routes between Hong Kong, India, Middle East and Europe with the fewest hops.

Jio provides network operations and management for AAE-1 Cable System. The AAE-1 NOC, managed by Jio, leverages the state-of-the-art facility in Navi Mumbai, along with its advanced tools and automation.

AAE-1, the longest 100Gbps technology-based submarine system, will stretch over 25,000 km from Marseille, France, to Hong Kong, with 21 cable landings across Asia and Europe. This large-scale project is the combined work of leading telecom service providers from Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

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.

AAE-1 will pass through the critical hubs, serving the increasing demand for video centric data bandwidth supporting all types of communications, applications and content within India and beyond. AAE-1 links seamlessly with other cable systems and fibre networks to deliver direct access to all global markets.

“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 Reliance Jio president Mathew Oommen.

“We are excited to participate in the launch and deliver the cable landing in Mumbai at a time when India’s data traffic continues its accelerated data consumption and growth,” he added.
