11 March 2015 |

PCCW Global and Ooredoo Qatar have signed a multi-service interconnection agreement for IPX and MPLS.

The move will see the two carriers collaborate in the provisioning of services to carrier and multinational customers requiring services such as VoIPX, GRX, Diameter, HD calling, HD video conferencing, Ethernet, cloud and SDN.

“We are very pleased to be entering into this multi-service interconnection agreement with PCCW Global, which is a respected global industry player,” said Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi CEO Ooredoo Global Services (OGS).

PCCW Global’s network is said to span over five continents worldwide and 140 countries can connect to its IPX platform, which also provides multiple services such as video, voice and IT applications via a single interconnection point.

“Our IPX network can be directly accessed in 140 countries around the world without having to make use of the public Internet or long-distance connections. Extensive coverage, coupled with the diversified design of PCCW Global’s private MPLS/IP network, ensures direct connection to our IPX voice platform and the highest quality services,” said Marc Halbfinger, CEO of PCCW Global.

Both companies are also collaborating as founder members of the Asia-Africa-Europe-1 (AAE-1) subsea cable system, which is scheduled for completion in 2016.
