Earlier we shared that Reliance Globalcom has deployed Hawk submarine cable system in the Mediterranean sea. Now RGlobalcom reported that Mobily, telecom major in Saudi Arabia is the first customer to be activated on Hawk system.

The 4-fiber pair submarine Hawk cable system, 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 recent cable cut off Egypt and India.

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.

Reliance Globalcom last week activated its Hawk submarine cable system in Egypt and seamlessly integrated it with the Reliance Global Network, to enable an additional capacity of 20 Tbps in the Mediterranean region.

Mobily inked a 15 year IRU deal with R-Globalcom. The deal includes purchase of multiple 10Gs of international bandwidth capacity, connecting Saudi Arabia to Europe and the United States. Using the newly activated Hawk cable system, Reliance delivered capacity for Mobily’s bandwidth requirements between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Europe.
