Reliance Jio has launched the Asia-Africa-Europe (AAE-1) submarine cable system. The company claims that it is the world's longest 100Gbps technology-based submarine system and will stretch for over 25,000km from Marseille, France to Hong Kong. It will have 21 cable landings across Asia and Europe. The project is a combination of leading telecom service providers from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It will feature diversified Points of Presence (PoP) in Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore), with three onward connectivity options in Europe (France, Italy and Greece).

The company says that AAE-1 will pass through critical hubs, serving the demand for video centric data bandwidth that supports all types of communications, applications and content within India and beyond. Jio says that the system will link 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,” stated Mathew Oommen, President-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 claims that the advanced design and route of AAE-1 lets it offer one of the lowest latency routes between Hong Kong, India, Middle East and Europe. The company will provide the Network Operations & Management for AAE-1 Cable System. The Network Operations Center (NOC) will use a state of the art facility in Navi Mumbai.
