Number of visits: Date:2018-06-25
Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of India's Reliance Communications, announced that the Indian submarine cable system's data center in India has been completed, which will help the Eagle system to be put into operation as planned.
   In 2017, India proposed the construction of the Eagle submarine cable system. According to the plan, the submarine cable system will use 100G technology, using 4-6 pairs of fibers, and the initial design capacity of each pair of fibers is 12-24 Tbps. The Eagle submarine cable system will land in Mumbai, connecting Hong Kong and Europe, avoiding the Malacca Strait, which is often disconnected. The system will be completed in two phases. The first phase of 7,750 km will connect Mumbai, India, Thailand and Hong Kong, while the construction of a branch line will connect Singapore and other places. The second phase of 8,900 kilometers connects Mumbai, the Middle East, and Italy via the Mediterranean cable landing station and is scheduled to be put into use by the end of 2020.
   The new Green Data Center in Knowledge City, Dhirubhai Ambani, Mumbai has nearly 4,50,000 square feet of floor area and 6,000 rack capacity. The new infrastructure is designed to meet the growing cloud and capacity needs of global companies.
   The GCX statement stated that the Eagle submarine cable system will be the fastest submarine cable route between India and key technology centers in the Middle East and Europe. When Eagle is put into production two years later, it will connect to India's newest and largest data center to further meet the needs of regional users.
