Bharti Airtel has launched its second high-speed subsea cable link between India and Europe.

The 12,091 km India Middle-East-Western Europe (IMEWE) cable opened for commercial services on Friday, connecting Mumbai in India with Marseille in France, via Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon and Italy.

According to Ajay Chitkara, head of the carrier’s global data business, the link will boost connectivity between Asia and Western Europe, by providing an alternative route to cope with growing demand for bandwidth. The cable has a design capacity of 3.84 terabits per second.

Nine carrier partners teamed to deploy and operate the cable, including Tata Communications, Orange and Etisalat.

The three fiber pair cable was constructed by Alcatel-Lucent under a contract awarded early 2008.
