Tata Communications has become one of the few global carriers to extend its Global IP / VPN service offerings into Pakistan, through collaboration with Multinet Pakistan Private Limited. The collaboration now makes Tata Communications the
largest global Ethernet provider in the world. The partnership will enable enterprise customers to enjoy the first commercially available Ethernet services in Pakistan, as well as global Multiprotocol Label Switching(MPLS) communications services, through a point of presence (PoP) deployment in Karachi.
"Pakistan is a growing and diverse economy which is enjoying increasing international investment.This is the 100th country reached by our MPLS services and the 52nd by our Ethernet services, giving us the largest global Ethernet footprint. The MPLS and Ethernet node in Pakistan will allow businesses to connect to their offices in Pakistan and around the world using Tata Communications' extensive regional and global presence," says Radwan Moussalli, Managing Director, Middle East & North Africa Region, Tata Communications.
The new services are particularly ideal for banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) companies looking to grow their presence in Pakistan, or migrating from international private lines to MPLS or Ethernet. Manufacturing, energy, IT and software development are other fast-growing sectors of the economy which will benefit from improved connectivity to the region and the rest of the world.
