Cinturion improves connectivity for India
Cinturion Corp Ltd, the Bermudian-registered global provider of scalable, subsea and terrestrial capacity-based network solutions, has reached an agreement with Lightstorm Telecom Ventures Pvt Ltd as its landing partner in India.
As part of the agreement, Cinturion's TEAS – Trans Europe Asia System, an “open-access” submarine and terrestrial network – will be hosted by Indian-based Lightstorm to strengthen connectivity between India, the Middle East and Europe.
Lightstorm said it will use its carrier-neutral and open cable landing station to herald a new era in the landing of submarine cable systems in India.
TEAS will link two new connections across the Arabian and Mediterranean Seas and continue with two paths interlinking the Middle East, with multiple routes across the Arabian Peninsula and a route through the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea.
TEAS’ low latency and diverse routing will change global traffic patterns by delivering cutting-edge solutions strengthening connectivity between India, the Middle East and Europe, Lightstorm said.
Bill Marra, chief commercial officer of Cinturion, said: "We are extremely excited to partner with Lightstorm and deliver a network that will ensure secure, resilient, and redundant communications with our open-access carrier-neutral solutions to further establish India as a hub for international connectivity."
Ranjan Banerjee, chief strategy officer at Lightstorm, said: "The growing data consumption and the digital aspirations of India demand best-in-class digital infrastructure.
“Collaboration with Cinturion will not only contribute to this growth but will also bring diversity to the existing cable systems in the country. We look forward to a longstanding and fulfilling partnership with Cinturion."
