On Monday, Reliance Jio announced that it is constructing the largest international submarine cable system that will be centered on India with the help of submarine cable supplier SubCom.

To take care of the growth in the demand of data across India, Jio is deploying two next-gen cables. The India-Asia-Xpress (IAX) system connects India eastbound to Singapore and the India-Europe-Xpress (IEX) connects India westbound to the Middle East and Europe.

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

“IAX and IEX will enhance the ability for consumer and enterprise users to access content and cloud services in and out of India.”, it added.

“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 first-of-its-kind, India-centric IAX and IEX sub-sea systems,” said Mathew Oommen, President of 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.

IAX is expected to be ready by mid-2023 and IEX will be available in early 2024, Jio said.
