وفي هذا السياق علّقت معالي الوزيرة الدكتورة هيام الياسري، بأن هذا المشروع وغيره من المشاريع المشابهة الجاري تنفيذها حالياً، ستجعل من العراق ممراً برياً آمناً ومنافساً للممر البحري الدولي الوحيد للكوابل الدولية في المنطقة الذي يمر عبر قناة السويس إلى أوروبا.

توفر شركة كلام حلولاً شاملة أخرى من خلال الاستفادة من الأصول المملوكة لها، بما في ذلك نظام الكابلات الأرضية المملوك لها بنسبة ١٠٠٪ الذي يربط دول مجلس التعاون الخليجي (KNOT)، بالإضافة إلى المساهمة بنظام الكابلات البحرية التابع لاتحاد بوابة الهند أوروبا(EIG) . توفر إضافة هذا المسار الفريد خيارات أسرع بزمن أقل، مرونة أكبر، درجة أمان أعلى، موثوقية، وأداء أفضل من خلال تحسين التناظر، وعبور بروتوكول الإنترنت لمشغلي دول مجلس التعاون الخليجي. كما يعالج نظام كابلات “كلام العراق ترانزيت” الفريد المخاطر الجيوسياسية وقيود السعة، مما يوفر طريقًا أكثر كفاءة، بينما يقدم للعملاء خيارات اتصال متنوعة بالخليج العربي. بالإضافة لذلك، كما ساهم حصول شركة زاجل على ترخيص من الهيئة العامة للاتصالات وتقنية المعلومات بالكويت على خلق المزيد من نقاط القوة حيث يتجنب هذا المسار نقاط الاختناق الشائعة ومشكلات الصيانة التي تتحدى الكابلات البحرية الأخرى عبر البحر الأحمر، والتي يمكن أن تسبب بفقدان بيانات الشركات عند الربط بين الخليج العربي وأوروبا.
