Inteliquent, a provider of global interconnection and interoperability solutions, recently announced that it has entered a partnership agreement with Vox Telecom, a telecom operator, providing voice and data services to the Southern African market.
According to the terms of the agreement, Vox Telecom will be able to access Inteliquent's EtherCloud. Moreover, Inteliquent will leverage Vox Telecom's comprehensive coverage in the Southern African region to fulfill growing demand for Ethernet in that market.
"As a leading communications provider in the Southern African region, Vox Telecom continues to explore the best ways to fulfill our clients' increasingly demanding network requirements. As we evolve to meet this need, it is imperative that we also collaborate to ensure the best possible solutions, while also meeting our overall business expansion strategies," states Simon Butler, head of Data and Access.
Adding, “Through this alliance, not only are we able to serve our current markets, but we are also expanding our Ethernet presence globally to offer comprehensive solutions to Inteliquent and its respective clients."
EtherCloud transforms and simplifies the delivery of Ethernet and VPLS services over a global footprint. A Layer 2 platform, EtherCloud connects diverse partner networks into a seamless Ethernet cloud that delivers point-to-point Ethernet with end-to-end connectivity around the world. EtherCloud relies on Inteliquent’s global MPLS backbone as a distributed switched network to interconnect partners’ networks through standardized E-NNIs. This MPLS network is accessible through 120-plus PoPs across four continents.
"Inteliquent's extensive network reach is complemented by the network reach of each of our EtherCloud partners," comments Surendra Saboo (News - Alert), president and COO of Inteliquent. "We're pleased to add Vox Telecom's extensive network presence in South Africa to expand our coverage and better serve the needs of our customers in this region.
