Through the Far East Connect Network, the service provider will be able to deliver connectivity between South East Asia and USA.
Bharti Airtel has announced the launch of its Far East Connect network, which the company claims will meet both the expansion and diversity needs of its network customers in the region.
Through the network, Bharti Airtel will be able to deliver connectivity on the Asia America Gateway, a 20,000 km high bandwidth fibre optic submarine cable system that will connect Southeast Asia to the United States. A consortium of 19 companies, including Bharti Airtel, AT&T and BT, have developed this cable system that will carry commercial traffic in the region. The company claims that this has made available an additional one terabit per second of capacity to the region.
Bharti Airtel has also entered into partnerships for providing connectivity to Japan, Taiwan, Australia and South Korea through multiple alternate routes.
Manoj Kohli, chief executive officer and joint managing director, Bharti Airtel, said in the official statement, "Our investments of over $500 million over the last two years are designed to create a global network that offers unmatched resilience and maximum diversity. Asia and the Pacific represent one of the fastest growing markets for ICT and as industry leaders in India."
