Dedicated international capacity at up to 100 Gbps direct across the GCX network

Point-to-point international capacity and leased lines across the world’s largest private subsea network with end-to-end connectivity up to 100G with a variety of routing options along the Emerging Markets Corridor.


High speed dedicated bandwidth on a privately-owned subsea network circling the globe

If it’s dedicated, high capacity bandwidth you need, you’ve come to the right place.

Our private line products are built on the world’s largest private subsea network, stretching from New York to Tokyo via the Atlantic, Europe, the Middle East, India, and South East Asia, with onward connectivity back to California.

With optical transport services available up to 10Gbps and optical wave services up to 100Gbps, ours is the network of choice for Telcos, OTTs, Data Center operators and enterprises looking for dedicated connectivity along the Emerging Markets Corridor, within Asia or across the Atlantic.

A key building block of the Cloud ecosystem

Over the past 3 years, we have transformed our network into a truly global Cloud ecosystem at speeds of up to 100Gbps (and beyond).

Where previously our network connected into Cable Landing Stations and “carrier hotels”, now we connect into key commercial data centers (including Equinix, Interxion, Digital Realty and Zayo) as well as Cable Landing Stations and “carrier hotels”.

By interconnecting these key Cloud building blocks on our next generation network we have ensured that we are in all the locations you need us to be in; especially along the Emerging Markets Corridor, offering seamless, reliable, end-to-end connectivity.

Future-proofed next-generation wave technology

Bandwidth demand is growing. Where once 2Mbps was “the norm”, now it’s 10Gbps and more.

Our private line products offer scalable dedicated bandwidth from 2Mbps all the way up to 100Gbps end-to-end across our network.

And because ours is a privately-owned network, you can be sure that upgrades and bespoke routes can be handled swiftly and efficiently, meaning you will not be left waiting while consortium members debate the pros and cons among themselves.

Connectivity for the future

India continues to be the world’s fastest-growing economy, while 75% of the world’s population lives in Emerging Markets.

Our focus is to connect Emerging Markets in Asia and the Middle East to established markets in Europe and North America. In doing this we offer ultra-high bandwidth services up to 100Gbps, facilitating the mass movement of Internet traffic, OTT content, enterprise data and Cloud services.

100Gbps private line connectivity to Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Silicon Valley, London, New York, Dubai, Doha, Manama, Kuwait City, Aqaba? No problem.

Reliability and service availability doesn’t happen by accident

Our global network has been designed and engineered to the highest possible standard to withstand as much disruption as possible and to ensure the highest possible levels of service availability.

And to add to that, all our private line services come with optional protection (either end-to-end or on key segments).

By using advanced network engineering such as optical protection, MSP1+1, MS-Spring, SDH, equipment redundancy (built into SLTE, PFE, power), dual landings, double armored casing and buried cable where necessary, we ensure our network provides some of the highest levels of service availability in the industry. So even if you have existing IPLCs between key locations, why not consider that extra bit of reliability that our highly-available, totally separate subsea and backhaul systems can offer?
