RCom-GCX and PrimeTel Together Upgrade Subsea Cable for Robust Connectivity

Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications (RCom), and Cyprus’ leading telecommunication provider PrimeTel today announced further enhancement of their partnership with a 100 Gbps upgrade to GCX’s HAWK subsea cable system branch into Cyprus. This network upgrade will offer robust connectivity solutions and drive new business opportunities across the strategic Europe-Cyprus-Middle East-Asia route. “With the recent upgrade, we have now broadened our reach into PrimeTel’s Cyprus Hub in Yeroskipos, providing enhanced coverage to meet the growing demand for high- performance, low-latency connectivity across the emerging markets in the Middle East and Asia,” said Wilfred Kwan, Chief Operating Officer, RCom & GCX.

“The network enhancement has already started to attract interest across key growth markets, and we are pleased that the first 100 Gbps wavelength connection for a major carrier is already in the process of being activated,” he further added.

“Businesses across the globe require new levels of support to facilitate the mass movement of Internet traffic, OTT content, enterprise data and Cloud computing services. Through our partnership with GCX, we will further establish Cyprus as a leading telecommunications hub in the Eastern Mediterranean and tap on its prime geographic location to accommodate exponentially growing bandwidth needs across the emerging markets,” said Theodosis Theodosiou, Chief Commercial Officer, PrimeTel.

As you might already be aware of, connectivity between the diverse geographic regions is facilitated through the integration of GCX’s next-generation HAWK submarine cable system with PrimeTel’s Cyprus gateway and hub, which was activated in 2011, to enable ultra-high bandwidth services across the rapidly- evolving Emerging Markets corridor.

HAWK, an express subsea cable between Marseille and Alexandria with a capacity of 20 Tbps, is part of GCX’s privately-owned Global Network, which consists of five subsea cable systems, spanning the globe and linking up established markets in Europe and North America to the Middle East, including all countries in the Gulf region, and key Asian markets such as India, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.

With its strategic geographical position in the Eastern Mediterranean, PrimeTel is able to offer reliable and low-latency connections to neighbouring countries, designed to meet business needs for scalability, flexibility, efficiency and security for the wider Eastern Europe and Middle East region.

Does it need technology to teach marketing? The intention of the technology was to oppress human to the need of some who want. Technology can never serve unless the mindsets are right. As for now pride, destruction and justifying those. Normal human in danger.
