The Economic Times - - Companies -

Re­liance Jio In­fo­comm, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with part­ners such as Dia­log Ax­i­ata, Tele­com Malaysia and Voda­fone, has launched the Bay of Ben­gal Gate­way (BBG), an 8,100-km ca­ble sys­tem that pro­vides di­rect con­nec­tiv­ity to South­east Asia and West Asia, then on­ward to Europe, Africa and Far East Asia through in­ter­con­nec­tion with ex­ist­ing ca­ble sys­tems.

BBG is one of the new ca­ble sys­tems in the re­gion in which Jio has in­vested as part of its broad­band plans.The telco on Mon­day said it owns and op­er­ates the strate­gi­cally im­por­tant un­der­sea ca­ble land­ing fa­cil­ity in Chen­nai, pro­vid­ing a high-speed, high-ca­pac­ity, low la­tency route con­nect­ing In­dia to the rest of the world. “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,” said Mathew Oom­men, pres­i­dent at Re­liance Jio.
