Hawk has been designed with two routes - one express route connecting Marseille in France and Alexandria in Egypt and another local route, with a spur to Yeroskipos in Cyprus meant for establishing a low latency, high-speed diverse alternate route on the Europe - Middle East segment, plementing Reliance Global's Falcon and FEA cable systems.

"Hawk integration is In line with our mitment to address the increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications and it will immensely benefit billions of users in India and Middle East connected on Reliance network," he further added.

Hawk was initially launched on the Marseille-Cyprus segment to provide adequate bandwidth for local service providers who were concentrating on meeting high speed connectivity needs of emerging broadband internet users in Cyprus. Hawk was further extended to Europe and the US, which are major internet content and connectivity hubs, by building a new terrestrial ring connecting London, Paris and Frankfurt and integrating it with Reliance Global's FA-1 cable system in the Trans-Atlantic region.

Now by interconnecting with Reliance Global's cable system in Egypt, Hawk creates novel opportunities for carriers in the Middle East and India to cater to growing customer requirements for high-speed, reliable and cost-effective solutions. Hawk is the only cable system in the Mediterranean region which is fully owned and managed by a single service provider, ensuring hassle free service delivery and assurance.
