Qtel, Reliance Globalcom to inter-connect networks

Qtel, a Qatar-based telecom operator, and Reliance Globalcom, a provider of enterprise, wholesale, consumer and managed services, have signed an agreement to inter-connect networks to provide a range of managed services for Qatar-based and international clients.

Under the partnership, Qtel and Reliance Globalcom will be able to offer value-added services to customers in Qatar and internationally, including global ethernet, full circuit IPLC (international private leased circuit), managed services and IP VPN (internet protocol for virtual private networks). These services enable business networks to manage higher volume of voice, video and data applications.

In addition, the new agreement is expected to introduce greater redundancy in the network and increase the traffic capacity of voice and internet networks, to help reduce the impact of events such as breach of internet sub-cables.

Reliance Globalcom owns undersea cable system, spanning 65,000km and connecting key business markets in India, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the US, including its FLAG Europe-Asia cable.

Punit Garg, president and CEO of Reliance Globalcom, said: “We are pleased to expand our services by connecting Qatar on the Reliance Globalcom network, via a strong regional partner such as Qtel. Our relationship with Qtel is part of a strategy to collaborate with quality service providers and leverage each other’s strengths to extend network capability and reach in the region for serving the fast growing needs of our customers.”
