Sify starts Mumbai undersea cable landing station
Sify Technologies commissioned its Mumbai undersea cable landing station.
“This connectivity will open a larger market for our managed enterprise and data centre services in the Middle Eastern (West Asian) market,” Sify Technologies Managing Director and Chief Executive Raju Vegesna said here.
Sify also signed a landing party agreement with MENA Submarine Cable System, an Egyptian telecom operator whose services span Europe, Africa and Asia.
“By partnering with Sify Technologies, we believe MENA will be able to connect India to Europe with its express fibre link to serve the growing demand of the Indian market,” MENA Submarine Managing Director Ahmed Khalaf said.
With a capacity of up to 10 terabits per second on certain cable sections, this system is designed to accommodate the rapid growth in voice and rich media traffic originating from and terminating in West Asia as well as the African and European markets.
