Mitsubishi Electric Corp has completed work on the India-Middle East-Western Europe (IMEWE) Cable Network. The project aims to upgrade the submarine cable network with 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology. The upgrade involved installation of submarine line terminal equipment in eight countries. The IMEWE Cable System, which was commissioned in 2010 as a 10 Gbps DWDM system, is an ultra-high capacity fibre optic submarine cable system which links India to Europe via the Middle East. This cable network system with a total length of approximately 12,091km is complemented with 10 terminal stations owned by a consortium of nine leading telecom carriers in eight countries: India, Pakistan, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Italy and France.
