Bay of Bengal Gateway Cale System (BBG)
Construction started in May 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2014. The BBG Submarine Communications Cable System provides a direct trunk connection between Barka (Sultanate of Oman) and Penang (Malaysia) with four branches to Fujairah (UAE), Mumbai (India), Colombo (Sri-Lanka) and Chennai (India). From Penang the system is connected via a terrestrial connection to Singapore. The length of the submarine Cable system is 5934 km from Barka to Penang, with a 216 km Branch to Fujairah, 426 km branch to Mumbai, 142 km branch to Colombo and a 1322 km branch to Chennai, totaling a total length of 8040 km.
The BBG Cable system creates a high-speed bridge between Europe, Middle East, Cantral Asia and the Far East, with Singapore being a major cable hub with connection into to the Far East and Australia on one end \and Barka in Oman which is established itself as a major hub with connections to Europe, Africa and the GCC.
It has the following landing points
- Barka (Sultanate of Oman)
- Penang (Malaysia)
- Fujairah (UAE)
- Mumbai (India
- Colombo (Sri-Lanka)
- Chennai (India).
From Penang the system is connected via a terrestrial connection to Singapore.
The BBG Submarine Communications Cable build by Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks is a three fibre pair cable, with submerged Repeates, BUs and ROADMs and is based on 100G DWDM Coherent Technology with an overall design capacity of 10 Tbps per fibre pair, underpinning the continued bandwidth growth of new broadband applications and services in the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent and the Far East.
Coherent Technology mainly consist of four major elements: high order amplitude/phase modulation, polarization multiplexing, coherent detection using a local oscillator laser in the receiver, and high-speed ADCs and sophisticated digital signal processing in the receiver, 100G Coherent Technology can overcome various fiber impairments, such as chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD).
