Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications (RCOM), and Cyprus’ leading telecommunications provider PrimeTel today announced further enhancement of their partnership with a 100 Gbps upgrade to GCX’s HAWK subsea cable system branch into Cyprus.
This network upgrade will offer robust connectivity solutions and drive new business opportunities across the strategic Europe-Cyprus-Middle East-Asia route.
“With the recent upgrade, we have now broadened our reach into PrimeTel’s Cyprus Hub in Yeroskipos, providing enhanced coverage to meet the growing demand for high-performance, low-latency connectivity across the emerging markets in the Middle East and Asia,” said Wilfred Kwan, Chief Operating Officer, RCOM and GCX.
“The network enhancement has already started to attract interest across key growth markets and we are pleased that the first 100Gbps wavelength connection for a major carrier is already in the process of being activated,” added Kwan.
“Businesses across the globe require new levels of support to facilitate the mass movement of Internet traffic, OTT content, enterprise data and Cloud computing services. Through our partnership with GCX, we will further establish Cyprus as a leading telecommunications hub in the Eastern Mediterranean and tap on its prime geographic location to accommodate exponentially growing bandwidth needs across the emerging markets,” said Theodosis Theodosiou, Chief Commercial Officer, PrimeTel.
