VSNL International opens MPLS PoP in Australia

VSNL International, the international arm of Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (NYSE: VSL), India's former monopoly international telco, has opened a global MPLS PoP in Sydney and has appointed Alan McCartney to head Australian enterprise sales operations.

VSNL operates over 365 MPLS PoPs throughout India and a dozen international PoPs in key business hubs around the world. Using VSNL’s extensive ownership of submarine cable networks, the global MPLS network is designed to offer enterprise customers a variety of Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services.

Since being acquired by Indian industrial conglomerate the Tata Group, VSNL is rapidly become a major force on the global communications scene. In 2005 it acquire an extensive submarine cable network, the Tyco Global Network, and earlier this year Canada's former international carrier, Teleglobe.

In June this year VSNL launched a global ethernet private line service connecting major cities throughout North America, Europe, Asia and 120 cities in India using a SDH/SONET platform to ensure low latency and jitter and high reliability, complementing its ethernet over MPLS service.

According to VSNL, this service "enables enterprises to economically extend their local area networks to support global video, voice and data transport and to securely and seamlessly send point-to-point traffic between destinations across the world". The service, dubbed 'Dedicated Global Ethernet' offers bandwidth between 2Mbps and 1Gbps with the flexibility to upgrade the bandwidth on an as-needed basis without service interruption.
