27 April 2013 1,074 views No Comment

Bharti Airtel has joined hands with Reliance Jio Infocomm providing Asia Pacific Data Capacity. The two have made an agreement to provide international data capacity using the Bharti’s India-to-Singapore i2i submarine cable. The Indefeasible Right to Use (IRU) Agreement has been signed by the two companies. “The Bharti deal happened because RCOM didn’t have a network in the Asia Pacific region,” said a company source. It is a Rs 1,200 crores deal. “Bharti Airtel Ltd, a leading global telecom services provider with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa, and Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd today announced that they have signed an Indefeasible Right to Use (IRU) Agreement, under which Bharti will provide Reliance Jio data capacity on its i2i submarine cable,” an RIL statement said.


Bharti Airtel has made the agreement to ensure nationwide fiber network access. It is a proof that Reliance Jio has been making continued efforts towards making a growth in its international and domestic network and infrastructure. It has been building an ecosystem with multiple carriers and service providers.

“The deal marks Reliance Jio’s continued efforts to rapidly grow and expand both its international and domestic network and infrastructure by building an ecosystem with multiple carriers and service providers,” the statement said. By this they will be offering a richer and wider experience to their customers.

I2i, owned by Bharti Airtel, is the connection between India and Singapore. Eight fiber pairs make up the state of the art cable using DWDM, capable of supporting multiple terabits of capacity per fiber pair. Chennai in India and Tuas in Singapore have the landing points of the cable. Reliance Jio has decided to utilize a dedicated fiber pair on i2i. With the high speed link Reliance Jio will extend its network and customers services throughout Asia Pacific region.
