Since the pandemic, connectivity has never been more crucial to society, and a spotlight has been shown on mobile and broadband technology, the enabler for so many of the services we now rely on. Aqua Comms, a leading provider of global subsea connectivity services, has plans for global connectivity expansion, starting with an acquisition that will provide a carrier-neutral platform in India for Aqua Comms services.

Aqua Comms recently announced the successful acquisition of Openbyte Infrastructure Private Limited, an India-based licensed telecom company focused on providing neutral, open access landing solutions for submarine cables.

The company’s goal is to address the needs of its customers by investing in global subsea infrastructure and this acquisition will help to establish it as a leader in providing global subsea capacity, whilst retaining the core principle of neutrality in its service offering.

A key component to this acquisition is the appointment of Amit Vyas as CEO, India and Regional Chief Business Development Officer for Aqua Comms. Vyas comments, “I’m absolutely delighted to join the team at Aqua Comms who share our vision. Over the next 5 to 7 years the international digital infrastructure in India will be greatly enhanced and we at Aqua Comms will be at the forefront of bringing out this change for the better.”

The new CEO will be supported by Neeraj Katiyar, CTO, India and Chief Global Architect for Subsea Cables, who will be responsible for the technical aspects of regional projects. Both these well-recognised industry professionals offer rich global experience, particularly in India, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.

This is an important acquisition for Aqua Comms as it continues to execute its plans to expand business into new geographies and build its global network, providing a carrier-neutral platform in India for Aqua Comms services.
