Sify Technologies Limited, a leader in Managed Enterprise, Network and IT Services in India with growing global delivery capabilities today announced the operational readiness of their Undersea Cable Landing Station in Mumbai.

Sify is being increasingly recognised as a leading integrated ICT (Information & Communication Technology) company and this cable landing station is an important milestone in our journey. We now look forward to partnering with telecom service providers and playing a larger active role in the communication revolution that is unfolding in the Asia Pacific region, Middle East and Africa. With capacity to land additional submarine cable systems, this connectivity will open a larger market for our industry-leading Managed Enterprise and Data Centre Services in the Middle Eastern market.

Sify also signed a Landing Party Agreement (LPA) with MENA Submarine Cable System S.A.E, a licensed telecommunications operator in the Egypt. MENA cable spans over three continents (Europe, Africa and Asia). Initially it lands in Italy, Egypt, KSA, Oman, and India with expansion plans to service more African and European countries. MENA-SCS is a six pairs fibre cable, where each pair is designed for expansion up to 96 wavelengths multiplied by 10Gb/s for each which means an ultimate capacity of 5.76Tb/s and further scope to upgrade to 100G/S technology to have capacity more than 5 times current capacities.
