New Delhi: Enterprise communication services provider Tulip Telecom on Thursday inked a pact with Hutchison Global Communications (HGC), under which both the companies will be able to access each other’s network infrastructure globally.
“This agreement will allow both the companies to access each other’s network infrastructure and jointly provide IP-VPN and VPLS (virtual private LAN service) services to customers across the world,” Tulip Telecom chief executive officer Sanjay Jain told PTI.
While the deal will help HGC to further enhance its connectivity to India, Tulip will be able to utilize HGC’s infrastructure across 190 countries, he added.
Asked about the deal size, Jain said, “There is no upfront payment. There is a percentage payout on using the other’s network, which will be decided on a case-to-case basis.”
Earlier this year, Tulip launched its global connectivity services, for which the company set up four international point of presence (PoPs) in Singapore, New York, Los Angeles and London.
These PoPs enabled Tulip to offer enterprise connectivity services to international customers.
“This collaboration with HGC will further strengthen our focus on providing international connectivity solutions to our customers,” Jain said.
