Reliance Jio announced the launch of a new, state of the art 8,100 km cable system, the Bay of Bengal Gateway (BBG) in partnership with Dialog Axiata, Etisalat, Omantel, Telekom Malaysia, and Vodafone.

BBG provides direct connectivity to South East Asia and the Middle East, then onward to Europe, Africa and Far East Asia through seamless interconnection with existing cable systems. According to Reliance Jio, BBG has deployed the latest submarine cable 100Gbps transmission technology, utilizing wavelength add/drop branching units along the route, with an initial equipped capacity of 9 terabits per second(Tbps). The design capacity of the submarine cable system is 55Tbps.

Mathew Oommen, President, Releince Jio
We are excited about the launch of BBG as it offers not just direct connectivity in and out of India through Chennai and Mumbai but also acts as a state-of-the-art 100 Gbps extension of Jio’s 100 Gbps core network. This global connectivity brings key international content hubs closer to our customers, delivering a much richer experience as an important part of driving India’s broadband adoption, enabling consumers to shift away from the current high-cost low value propositions.
