The network-to-network interconnection (NNI) agreement allows Tata Communications to extend its current end-to-end service capabilities by incorporating the TE Data's IP Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network footprint in Egypt, using more than 800 access points-of-presence. This will enable the company's Virtual Private Network (VPN) customers to benefit from superior connectivity to and from Egypt while experiencing the same security, redundancy and quality of service offered on the Tata Communications network.
''Tata Communications and TE Data have interconnected their respective MPLS infrastructures, setting up multiple, redundant NNI points between the two companies connecting Tata Communications' European and Indian network hubs with TE Data's facilities in Egypt in order to serve enterprise customers' growing worldwide connectivity needs,'' a company statement said here.
The agreement is the latest in Tata Communications' plans to continue to develop and expand its global coverage.
Tata Communications already offers its MPLS services in almost 40 countries and expects to reach over 50 by the end of this year.
