Tata Communications Establishes MPLS Interconnect with Telecom Egypt

Tata Communications
has expanded its Global VPN service to Egypt through a partnership agreement with TE Data, a subsidiary of Telecom Egypt . Specifically, the carriers have interconnected their respective MPLS infrastructures, setting up multiple, redundant network-to-network interconnection (NNI) points between the two companies connecting Tata's European and Indian network hubs with TE Data's facilities in Egypt.

The NNI agreement allows Tata Communications to seamlessly extend its current end-to-end service capabilities by incorporating the TE Data's IP MPLS network footprint in Egypt, using more than 800 access points-of-presence.

Tata currently offers its MPLS services in almost 40 countries and expects to reach over 50 by the end of 2008. It is also increasing the resiliency and depth of its international network with new dual PoPs in four countries and new PoPs in 8 cities within its existing country footprint.
