Indian Ocean Xchange - IOX

IOX will be the first submarine cable system connecting to Mauritius to Rodrigues, South Africa, India and the rest of the world. IOX is committed to converting Mauritius by 2019 to an international data hosting centre and key exchange point for the ICT, Financial and Commodity sectors in the Indian Ocean by connecting links across Indian ocean islands. A nationwide terrestrial fibre optic network connecting planned eight smart cities will also be built. Cloud enabled Datacentres will be implemented, capable of hosting international content, diversifying services, including Enterprise services.

  • The Wet plant is designed with a very high optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) to allow large design capacities up to 135 * 100G waves
  • The powering configuration is designed in such a way to provide high reliability including the branches to support shunt fault anywhere in the network
