Today, Wednesday 29th November 2023, we celebrated the landing of the India-Europe-Xpress (IEX) submarine cable. The ceremony was attended by all key stakeholders including our senior management team and leading government ministers. This is a major step forwards, as Djibouti strengthens it’s position as the telecom hub for East Africa. The IEX cable will add to the 8 Operational submarine cable systems.
Built by Reliance Jio Infocomm, the IEX connects Mumbai to Europe and interconnects with the India-Asia-Xpress (IAX) in Mumbai to reach Singapore. IEX lands in the Middle East and Africa (Oman, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia and Egypt) as well as through the Mediterranean Sea with landings in France, Italy and Greece.
