The Gulf Bridge International Network Operations Center has been unveiled to the public at Qatar Science and Technology Park, Doha. The NOC is the nerve centre for the region’s highest capacity and most geographically comprehensive cable network, connecting all the nations of the Gulf onwards to the data centres of Europe and Asia.
The GBI Cable System has a design capacity of 40G, roughly four times the Gulf’s current standard, with portions upgraded to 100G. The cable system connects all the countries in the Gulf in a robust ring configuration. Outside the Gulf, the cable connects eastwards to Mumbai, India and westwards to Sicily, Italy, with diverse routing to Milan and onwards to London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris and Marseilles.
