Enterprises Can Now Compete Effectively on a Global Scale by Using Fully-Managed, High-Speed, Flexible and Secure Ethernet Services When Entering Emerging Markets
Reliance Globalcom, a leading global provider of managed network and communication services for multinational enterprises, carriers and consumers, announced today that it has extended its Enterprise Global Ethernet services to 17 countries, more than any other service offering of its kind. The Enterprise Global Ethernet service leverages Reliance Globalcom’s assets to expand the reach of its wide area point-to-point and fully-meshed offerings, thereby addressing customer demand for such services in additional countries. Reliance Globalcom’s offering helps customers compete effectively on a global scale by providing speed and flexibility when entering emerging markets, network agility in response to fluctuating business dynamics and secure connectivity with the world’s key business centers.
Additionally, Reliance Globalcom’s Ethernet services reach 36 countries through a combination of owned-assets and strategic carrier alliances, and encompass Reliance Communications’ 176 points of presence (PoPs) across all major Indian cities. Building on these strengths, Reliance Globalcom’s fully-meshed, fully-managed Enterprise Global Ethernet network serves China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Singapore, Spain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the United Kingdom (U.K.), the United States (U.S.) and several additional enterprise destinations worldwide.
“Reliance Globalcom’s connectivity to the world’s business centers – locations like Paris, London, Frankfurt, Hong Kong and the U.S. – becomes more meaningful when you consider we can expand that reach to include new markets that are driving the globalization of our economy today,” said Dr. Kamran Sistanizadeh, chief technology officer, Reliance Globalcom. “More multinationals are coming onboard with sites in China, Qatar, India, and the UAE. Reliance Globalcom offers these companies the latency and performance advantages of VPLS, and ease and flexibility for site configuration management.”
The Enterprise Global Ethernet offering from Reliance Globalcom presents many advantages for both existing customers and enterprises around the world. Key benefits include:
Reliance Globalcom operates an Ethernet network that employs VPLS over a MPLS platform. With fully-meshed services to more countries than any other service provider, Reliance Globalcom is able to meet the reach and performance demands of customers worldwide. Its managed Enterprise Global Ethernet offering is backed by leading service level agreements (SLAs) that ensure the lowest latencies, lowest packet loss and lowest jitter. The Company’s fully managed infrastructure is further extended through its 65,000 kilometers (km) of undersea cable assets, more than 21 network-to-network interface (NNI) agreements with key partners and more than 750 carrier relationships in developing and emerging markets around the world ensure that application and performance continue to be delivered to meet business needs.
Various analysts and independent reports have predicted that Ethernet-based services delivered over MPLS networks will dominate WAN services due to their simplicity, scalability, flexibility and economy. According to an independent report about carrier Ethernet services in Europe published by Forrester Research in September 2008, “The market for VPLS-based services will take off… Forrester expects VPLS-based services delivered over MPLS networks to become the dominant means of delivery for Ethernet services over the next 24 months.” (Ethernet Services Take Europe by Storm, Forrester Research, Inc., September 2008).
Reliance Globalcom continues to lead the way in matching best-in-class networking with the unique needs of individual business operations. Customers worldwide rely on its consultative approach to network solutions using MPLS, Ethernet or hybrid designs.
