Tata Communications and PCCW Global to interconnect IPX

Tata Communications and PCCW Global have signed an agreement to interconnect their IPX (IP-Exchange) communities.

This will enable IP communications services such as HD voice and HD video in various global markets. As 4G adoption continues to gather pace, this agreement further expands the global community of interconnected mobile network operators (MNOs) who will be able to capitalise on the latest technology innovations in mobile broadband.

Christian Michaud, senior vice president, Product and Business Strategy, Global Voice Solutions, Tata Communications said, “As we see more mobile operators introducing next generation IP-based communication services, global IP interconnectivity between networks is vital to delivering the highest quality end-to-end service experience. Through our latest IPX peering agreement with PCCW Global, we continue to expand our global community of interconnected mobile operators across Asia and Africa, providing the broadest global reach across emerging markets.”

The interconnection between Tata Communications and PCCW Global is based on Tata Communications’ IPX+ connectivity platform. Underpinning this platform is Tata Communications’ global MPLS network, supported by its wholly-owned fibre optic subsea cable ring around the world, which brings the reach and reliability needed to interconnect mobile service communities globally. The company is a Tier 1, top five IP carrier with a reach to 74 IPX On-Net PoPs across 40 countries, ensuring maximum reach for the global community of interconnected MNOs.

Ronnie Klingner, president, Voice Solutions, PCCW Global said, “We have been one of the pioneers of next generation IP-based networks, which enable us to deliver improved voice quality and greater cost efficiencies to our customers via Voice over IPX (VoIPX). The collaboration with Tata Communications further extends the coverage of our existing 40 direct VoIPX mobile networks.”

PCCW Global provides IPX and VoIPX to over 130 countries, making PCCW Global one of the largest IPX providers with the most local access connections worldwide. Tata Communications’ IPX+ connectivity platform supports multiple services across networks using integrated access to multiple data transport options over a converged IP network.
