Leading telecommunication services provider Dialog Axiata PLC this week announced the connection of Sri Lanka to the ultra high capacity 100G-PLUS Bay of Bengal Gateway (BBG) submarine fibre optic cable via its state-of-the-art cable landing station (CLS) at Mount Lavinia. The ultra high capacity submarine cable was commissioned on Monday by President Maithripala Sirisena, in the presence of the Telecommnications and Digital Infrastructure Minister Harin Fernando, and other telecommunications and ICT sector officials.

Dialog’s BBG CLS now links the nation to one of the world’s most technologicallyadvanced cable systems and powers up the single largest global bandwidth infusion to the country. Dialog’s investment in the BBG Cable Project exceeds US $ 34.5 million (approx. Rs.5bn) and underscores the company’s aggressive commitment to deliver the fastest and most advanced connectivity technology to all Sri Lankans.

The new cable system will deliver over 6.4 Terrabits per second (Tbps) of international bandwidth to Sri Lanka, and will represent a significant step-up in respect to connectivity speeds and will furthermore catalyse an unmatched connectivity experience coupled with a multiplicity of networking options for retail consumers and enterprises. In addition to providing Sri Lanka’s connectivity eco-system with the single largest infusion of international bandwidth, the BBG cable will also infuse further speed and capacity to Dialog’s state-of-the-art 3G HSPA+, 4G and fibre optic networks.

Furthering its role as an industry leader in the provision of international gateway services, Dialog will also extend the benefit of connectivity to high-speed internet bandwidth delivered via the BBG CLS to other telecommunications service providers in Sri Lanka. The BBG uses the most advanced high-speed fibre optic technology; dense wavelength division multiplexing, which allows the capacity to be increased manifold without additional submarine intervention.

The initial equipped capacity of the system is a 6.4 Tbps on the back of a design capacity of 55 Tbps, which would enable the manifold expansion of the cable’s bandwidth and capacity into the future. “Dialog is proud to connect Sri Lanka to its first 100Gbps-plus submarine cable, the largest ever infusion of international bandwidth into the country. The BBG presents numerous advanced and connectivity options, guaranteeing the fastest connectivity to Asia- Pacific, Europe and Beyond,” said Azwan Khan, Chief Operating Officer of Dialog Axiata. Alongside Dialog Axiata, the BBG cable is co-owned by a group of high profile tier-1 global telecom operators including Vodafone, Reliance Jio Infocomm, Telekom Malaysia, Etisalat Group and Omantel.
