25 Jul 2012

Oman’s second national telecoms operator Nawras has announced it has partnered with Tata Communications to offer a full suite of international services, including what it claims to be the first Global Virtual Private Network (GVPN) in Oman. The new services will offer secure, international digital communications for multinational companies linking Nawras’ domestic network directly to over 200 of the world’s main business hubs and data centres via Tata Communications’ global network, which includes its wholly-owned fibre-optic submarine network ring. Nawras said that the deal will allow businesses in the region to benefit from products such as International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC), Ethernet, MPLS, CDN, video conferencing, cloud based computing, telepresence, IP Transit and data centre connectivity. ‘Our partnership with Tata Communications will ensure that our customers can rely on a single provider for the fastest, most diverse and infinitely scalable network services across the globe,’ commented Sheikh Abdulla bin Issa Al Rawahy, chief strategy officer at Nawras, adding: ‘Nawras GPVN will seamlessly converge data, voice, video and multimedia to deliver secure, critical real-time information for every business need. This is a cost effective solution that will scale as businesses grow and offers end-to-end management with great flexibility and security, backed by our award-winning customer experience.’
