Singapore's Singtel and India's Bharti Airtel have announced a joint venture where they have combined resources into one network to provide high speed data connectivity to 325 cities across the world through 370 Points of Presence (PoP).
This will form one of the largest Internet Protocol Virtual Private Networks (IP VPN) globally.
Together, Singtel's 200 PoPs in 160 cities around the world and Airtel's 170 plus PoPs in 165 cities across India, Africa and the Middle East, will form a new network that offers a connectivity backbone to enterprises which spans several continents: Asia, Europe, Africa and North America.
"With its wide coverage of cities in India, this network paves the way for our international customers to enter into one of the world's most vibrant economies. Conversely, this partnership also opens the door for Indian companies to expand abroad, supported by Singtel's high quality IP VPN network in major business cities in Asia, Europe and the US." said Mr Lim Seng Kong, Managing Director of Global Enterprise Business at Singtel Group Enterprise.
