Reliance Jio, the Mukesh Ambani-led company, who is also the largest 4G and mobile broadband digital services provider in India, announces the launch of the Asia-Africa-Europe (AAE-1) submarine cable system. AAE-1, the longest 100 Gbps technology based submarine system, will stretch over 25,000 km from Marseille, France to Hong Kong, with 21 cable landings across Asia and Europe.

This large scale project is the combined work of leading telecom service providers from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. With diversified Points of Presence (PoP) in Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore) and three onward connectivity options in Europe (via France, Italy and Greece), AAE-1 will provide the necessary flexibility and diversity for carriers and their customers.

AAE-1 will pass through the critical hubs, serving the increasing demand for video-centric data bandwidth supporting all types of communications, applications, and content within India and beyond. AAE-1 links seamlessly with other cable systems and fibre networks to deliver direct access to all global markets.

“The new terabit capacity and 100Gbps direct connectivity to global content hubs and interconnection points ensure that Jio will continue to offer its customers the most exceptional high-speed internet and digital service experience,” said Mathew Oommen, President-Jio. “We are excited to participate in the launch and deliver the cable landing in Mumbai at the time when India’s data traffic continues its accelerated data consumption and growth.”

Due to its advanced design and route, AAE-1 provides one of the lowest latency routes between Hong Kong, India, Middle East and Europe with the fewest hops.

Jio provides the Network Operations & Management for AAE-1 Cable System. The AAE-1 NOC, managed by Jio, leverages the state of the art facility in Navi Mumbai along with its advanced tools and automation.

Currently, Reliance Jio is the fastest 4G operator of India with average download speed crossing over 15 Mbps on a consistent basis in the last four months.
