LONDON -- Reliance Globalcom today announced the appointment of Mark Thompson as President of its Data Business unit, responsible for all data communications solutions within the global communications group. The Reliance Globalcom Data Business brings together its subsidiaries Reliance Globalcom Limited (formerly known as FLAG Telecom), Reliance Globalcom Services Inc. (formerly known as Yipes Enterprises) and Reliance Vanco Group (formerly known as Vanco Group) to create a global managed solutions provider, with leading on- and off-net data networking capabilities and related services, offering solutions to enterprises, systems integrators, and carriers around the globe.

By combining the three entities under a single business unit, Reliance Globalcom is able to deliver customer-focused managed network and application delivery solutions that leverage a global network with unrivalled reach, depth and breadth. The company offers its multinational, service provider and global carrier clients fully-managed and flexible services, including next generation managed WAN, remote access, security, application acceleration, convergence, data protection and hosting services. Reliance Globalcom helps its clients improve their competitive advantage by leveraging the company’s 65,000 route kilometre private cable system with reach to developed and emerging markets, its expertise in managing global IP MPLS and Ethernet VPLS customer networks, and its deep local access partnerships with more than 750 partners in 230 countries.

Over 1400 enterprise customers and 200 carriers depend upon Reliance Globalcom to manage business-critical network solutions and address complex requirements for their businesses and partners throughout the world.

“When it comes to global business connectivity, conglomerates, MNCs and large enterprises use a variety of technologies depending on geography, departmental policies and the nature of the data carried,” said Pauline Trotter principal analyst, Enterprise Practice, Ovum. “The provider that offers an all-in-one solution is very attractive to those customers that have disparate technologies on different parts of their network whether it’s Ethernet, IP MPLS, IPL or some combination of all of these transport solutions.”
