The initial equipped capacity of the system is a mammoth 9Tb/s and a staggering design capacity of 55Tb/s.

The BBG cable system is designed to provide upgradable and transmission facilities by adopting the state-of-the-art 100 Gbps technology.

Commenting on the launch of BBG, Mathew Oommen, President Reliance Jio shared, “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,” he added.
