By April 7th, 2013 AT 6:20 PM

Reliance Globalcom has announced the activation of Hawk submarine cable system in Egypt and its seamless integration with Reliance Globalcom Network.
Hawk will enable Reliance Global Network to take care of additional 20 terabits in Mediterranean region and will enable Falcon to carry the same capacity between Europe and India as well as between Europe and Middle East.


Key Features of Hawk System Which will help India

  • Hawk submarine cable system has already demonstrated its resilience during soft launch as it carried 180 Gbps of data during the recent cable cut off Egypt and India.
  • Capable of carrying 5 million HD quality interactive video channels simultaneously.
  • Connects 2.4 billion people on Reliance Global Network.
  • Offers four diverse terrestrial crossing paths across Egypt and very low latency supporting high bandwidth intensive applications.

The Hawk cable system that was built by Reliance Globalcom last fiscal to initially set up the world’s first Mediterranean Gateway and Hub at Cyprus has demonstrated its strong resilience as it carried 180 Gbps of data during the cable cut off Egypt and India recently. Hawk has been designed with two routes – one express route connecting Marseille in France and Alexandria in Egypt and another local route, with a spur to Yeroskipos in Cyprus meant for establishing a low latency, high-speed diverse alternate route on the Europe – Middle East segment, complementing Reliance Globalcom’s Falcon and FEA cable systems.

Sorry to be off topic but are corporate connection plans much cheaper than consumer plans?

I once had a Tata photon+ connection which was truly unlimited (no FUP or CAP) but the company did not disclose the amount! but I am sure it was cheap and remember it was EVDO 3.1 Mbps and I used to get 2-2.5Mbps unlimited.

Sadly the deal terminated on 31st December 2012. 🙁

Yes they are cheaper. That is why there are High speed WiFi and fee internet in companies and colleges.

The fact is that there is not much expense for Reliance to provide high speed internet. But if they provide cheap internet for us they will get only Rs 100 or 200. While these companies pay Rs 2 or 3 lac per year. So reliance gives 100Mbps unlimited connections to them.


Good! We have more bandwidth and reliance should use portion of it in providing cheap 4G services. but, firstly, they must take care of 3G!
