Enhancing Connectivity Between India and Europe

With each segment designed for high-capacity transmission featuring 13 fiber pairs, partners can now provide advanced, high-capacity services to meet the growing global digital demand.

Telecom Egypt's Role

Telecom Egypt played a significant role in facilitating the landing of the IEX Subsea system by securing smooth, speedy, and flexible local permits, approvals, and landing-related logistics. The telco provided landing facilities and support in Egypt, along with new diverse terrestrial crossings between Zafarana2 and Sidi Kerir landing stations, the official release said.
