Tata Communications and Turkcell Superonline will set up a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) node in Istanbul.
This collaboration strengthens the reach of Tata Communications’ MPLS network and brings direct connectivity to global and regional businesses into and out of the region.
The partnership will enable businesses in Turkey, and adjoining countries where Turkcell Superonline has established cross-border fiber connectivity, to connect to Tata Communications’ MPLS and Ethernet networks. Other value-added services such as video conferencing and managed security can also be accessed through this point-of-presence (PoP).
Radwan Moussalli, managing director and Regional Head, Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, Tata Communications, said: “The MPLS node in Istanbul provides the Middle East with a gateway to developed markets around the world and fosters enhanced trading relationships with geographies such as Africa and South East Asia.”
Turkcell Superonline invested in creating a 32,000 km fiber network within the country to transform the traditional silk route into the Middle East, Central Asia and Europe.
