Internet traffic disrupted for 24-hour

Internet traffic in the country was disrupted for almost 24 hours due to a break in Videsh Sanchar Nigam under-sea cable link between Dubai and Saudi Arabia. According to VSNL officials, the under-sea cable was partially damaged resulting in the reduction of the data that it can carry. The maximum capacity of the cable is 600 Mbps, which was reduced to 400 mbps due to the damage.

VSNL discovered the problem late on Monday night and was able to repair the damage by Tuesday evening. The under-sea cable link is provided by Sea-MeWe 3. The 39,000-km Sea-Me-We 3 cable is the world’s longest telecommunications system.

Corporate houses faced considerable delay in data transfer operations over the Web due to the damage to the under-sea cable. Netizens had a frustrating time as Internet access was difficult for most of the day.

VSNL recently commissioned its gigabit routed Internet exchange at Mumbai which enables it to deliver high-speed and flexible dedicated links for the Indian Internet network.

The new routed exchange forms the prime hub between the Sea-Me-We 3 optical fibre system and India’s Internet network comprising over 200 ISPs, 400 nodes and over 1000 corporate leased lines.
