Cinturion has signed a final landing party agreement to partner with Lightstorm to bring the first carrier-neutral open access cable landing station to India. This collaboration supports a strategic long-term partnership between the two companies that will strengthen and propel Lightstorm as a leader in next-generation fiber networks across India and beyond.
Cinturion’s TEAS – Trans Europe Asia System, an open-access subsea and terrestrial fiber optic network – will securely deliver high-speed data connectivity between India and Europe. TEAS’s advanced network is designed for direct long-distance, high-speed, low-latency and geographically diverse connections. TEAS will change the global traffic patterns by delivering a network that ensures security, resiliency and advanced communications across India, the Middle East and Europe. With its open-access capabilities, TEAS enables customers to integrate this fiber connectivity as extensions of their own private network by utilizing their selected lighting suppliers.
“Together, Lightstorm and Cinturion are committed to providing cutting-edge solutions that will benefit India’s local economies and the whole country by serving a broader range of customers with additional capacity and resources to the market,” says Greg Varsico, chief executive officer, Cinturion.
Ranjan Banerjee, chief strategy officer at Lightstorm, adds, "We are excited to bring India's first open CLS in collaboration with Cinturion. It will not only add diversity to India's cable landing system but will also play a crucial role in bringing much-needed bandwidth into the country.”
