MUMBAI/SINGAPORE -- Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) today announced its latest investment into the Asia Pacific region. The new ICX cable infrastructure is part of the company’s strategy to provide a direct subsea route to bridge an important gap in the emerging markets corridor, specifically delivering a direct Mumbai-Singapore route to bypass current outage prone terrestrial routes between Mumbai and Chennai.

“With Singapore as a regional hub and gateway for multinational companies doing business across India and emerging markets, the ICX cable will complement our GCX global network infrastructure for direct connectivity to major business centers in Asia, Middle East, North America and Europe,” said Bill Barney, Chief Executive Officer, Global Cloud Xchange.

Based on state-of-the-art 100G technology, the ICX cable will be a four fiber pair system with initial design capacity per fiber pair at 80 x 100G using next generation Coherent Submarine Fiber. This new segment will deliver termination into the Middle East, Europe and to the US East Coast through interconnection with GCX’s Falcon, Hawk and FA-1 systems.

“The new ICX fiber system, which runs approximately 5,060 kilometers between Mumbai and Singapore, will also have a branch landing in Trivandrum and/or Chennai. This will support creation of a next generation IP and Cloud environment held together with a single AS number and connecting into Tier III+ data center facilities on the ground,” said Wilfred Kwan, Chief Operating Officer, Global Cloud Xchange.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
