Tata Communications and Turkcell Superonline deploy MPLS PoP in Turkey

A new collaboration agreement between Tata Communications and Turkcell Superonline will establish a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) node in Istanbul.

This collaboration strengthens the reach of Tata Communications’ global MPLS network and brings direct and robust connectivity to global and regional businesses into and out of the region.

The partnership will enable businesses in Turkey, and adjoining countries where Turkcell Superonline has established cross-border fibre connectivity, to connect to Tata Communications’ global MPLS and Ethernet networks. Other value-added services such as video conferencing and managed security can also be accessed through this point-of-presence (PoP). 

Radwan Moussalli, Managing Director and Regional Head, Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, Tata Communications says, “This new MPLS node in Istanbul is the latest expansion to our global connectivity reach around the world. It not only provides the Middle East with a gateway to developed markets around the world, but also fosters enhanced trading relationships with geographies such as Africa and South East Asia using Tata Communications’ extensive global network reach.”

Emre Erdem, Managing Wholesale Director, Turkcell Superonline says, “We have invested in creating a 32,000km fibre network within the country to transform the traditional silk route into the Middle East, Central Asia and Europe into a 'fibre expressway'. Our in-country network, together with Tata Communications’ global network footprint provides enhanced world-class connectivity to our customers.”

Tata Communications operates the world's largest wholly owned subsea cable network and a Tier 1 IP network, providing connectivity to over 200 countries and territories across 400 PoPs.
