RIL to enter ILD space

By : |January 31, 2003 0



NEW DELHI: Reliance Infocomm is entering the International Long Distance (ILD) space. It has entered into an agreement with New Skies Satellites, on a multi-year, multi-transponder deal. This relationship creates a complete, end-to-end value-added service enabling Reliance to launch ILD telephony services to the US.

The bundled offering includes multiple transponders on the NSS-703 satellite, uplinking or downlinking services at New Skies’ partner mediaport northwest of London, and local loop as well as transatlantic fiber capacity linking the European gateway with Reliance’s facility at 60 Hudson Street in New York City. The service would be used along with Reliance’s growing fiber network, which covers over 600 cities across India. Company sources both in RIL and Skies were however tightlipped about the exact size of the order.

According to Ajeet Varma of Reliance Infocomm, "As we launch our international services, New Skies’ strong technical expertise and customer support will help us be successful in this very competitive business."
