The Blue Cable System connects Italy, France, Greece, and Israel, and the Raman Cable System connects Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Oman and India.
Both of the Blue and Raman cable systems consists of 16 fiber optic pairs, and are expected to be ready for service in 2024.
Google collaborates with Telecom Italia Sparkle, Omantel and others on the Blue and Raman cable projects.
In fact, Sparkle's BlueMed cable shares fiber pairs and wet segment of the Blue cable system.
