New Delhi: Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. (Jio), a subsidiary of Jio Platforms Limited, is constructing the largest international submarine cable system centered on India. Jio, in conjunction with several key global partners and world-class submarine cable supplier SubCom, is currently deploying two next-generation cables to support the extraordinary growth in data demand across the region.

The India-Asia-Xpress (IAX) system connects India eastbound to Singapore and beyond, while the India-Europe-Xpress (IEX) system connects India westbound to the Middle East and Europe. The systems will seamlessly interconnect as well as connect to the world’s top interexchange points and content hubs for extension of service globally. IAX and IEX will enhance the ability for consumer and enterprise users to access content and cloud services in and out of India.

For the first time in the history of fiber optic submarine telecommunications, these systems place India at the center of the international network map, recognizing India’s increased importance, staggering growth, and the quantum shift in data use since the launch of Jio services in 2016, said the company in a statement.

These high-capacity and high-speed systems will provide more than 200Tbps of capacity spanning over 16,000 kilometers. Employing open system technology and the latest wavelength switched RoADM/branching units ensures rapid upgrade deployment and the ultimate flexibility to add/drop waves across multiple locations.

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,” said Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio.

“Implementing these critical initiatives in the shadow of a global pandemic is a challenge, but the ongoing pandemic has only accelerated the digital transformation and the necessity of high-performance global connectivity for the delivery of a richer experience to enterprises and consumers.
The IAX system connects India, the world's fastest-growing economy, to Asia Pacific markets with express connectivity from Mumbai and Chennai to Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. The IEX system extends India's connectivity to Italy, landing in Savona, and additional landings in the Middle East and North Africa.

Apart from the seamless connection of the IAX and IEX sub-sea systems, the two systems are also connected to the Reliance Jio Global Fiber Network beyond Asia Pacific and Europe, connecting to both the east and west coast of the USA. IAX is expected to be ready for service by mid-2023, while IEX will be ready for service in early 2024.

Today country is at war. The enemies from inside and outside as has waged a War on India which includes mal propaganda , subversion, biological attack like corona to weaken the country. We have aspired to be a greatest nation on this planet so far as economy, military power ,peace and spirituality is concerned. Definitely, many vested interest inside and outside India cannot digest this. Coming 2 dacades will be very important. We either accept the the interior status then what we deserve or fight these enemies and emerge victorious. Narendra Modi has significantly boost the case of India in economy and military power We have laid a very solid Foundation for the progress of the India. We will have to fight it out and emerge as victotous. It is the only option. The company like Reliance, Tata, Adani, Mahindra has the power to take the Indian economy in the direction where it will not only take a giant leap in terms of economy, but technology as well. We must wholeheartedly support this companies and counter the mall propaganda by congress and other sickular fifth columnists media, commies, Islamists and other political parties. These companies will not only take India forward but will make India a leader in many area. Hats off to Reliance for such a project of exorbitant scale which is not possible for many to match. India is a data superpower. Reliance is a champion in what Mukesh Ambani refers to as datagiri.
