Tata Communications expands VPN services to Egypt

15 Apr 2008

Tata Communications, formerly VSNL, has announced the expansion of its Global VPN service to Egypt through a partnership agreement with Telecom Egypt’s TE Data arm. The pair have interconnected their respective multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) infrastructures, setting up multiple redundant network-to-network interconnection points between the two companies, connecting Tata Communications’ European and Indian network hubs with TE Data’s facilities in Egypt. The agreement allows Tata to extend its current end-to-end service capabilities by incorporating TE Data’s IP MPLS network footprint in Egypt, reportedly using more than 800 access points-of-presence.
