SYDNEY –- Telstra International, a leading global provider of managed network solutions, today unveiled a series of initiatives to deepen its connectivity in key Asian growth markets in Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. As well, the company announced that it has reinforced its dual-PoP strategy to provide enhanced diversity to its network coverage. Together, the expanded connectivity and diverse network coverage address the growing need to support customers with an advanced business continuity capability.

The various initiatives are as follows:

Through a partnership with Viettel, one of Vietnam’s largest full-service telecommunications providers, Telstra International has established its IP VPN Points of Presence (PoPs) in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, allowing multinational customers to access a highly reliable network, and have direct connectivity to branch offices in Vietnam and Cambodia. The partnership also allows Telstra International to offer customers traditional private line and Ethernet private line services in both countries

Expanded services in Indonesia and Malaysia - new PoP infrastructure has been put into the two countries to enable Telstra International to provide traditional private line and Ethernet private line services to customers. Businesses can now access Telstra International’s comprehensive portfolio of services, enjoy assurance through industry leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and access the company’s 24/7 NOC support

Telstra International has expanded its dual-PoP connectivity to 7 major countries in Asia, adding to the inherent resiliency and diversity of its global MPLS network. For customers, the enhanced redundancy options mean improved quality and support for real-time services. It also means that network services are highly available with options for proactive network management and advanced business continuity plans

“Our continued investment in infrastructure and strategic partnerships will strengthen Telstra’s leadership as a regional specialist carrier in Asia. We are committed to rolling out new and innovative services designed to meet our customers’ network infrastructure and managed services requirements,” commented Drew Kelton, Managing Director, Telstra International.

“Moving from 2009 to 2010, we will continue to see evidence of the growing demand for data connectivity in growth markets in Asia, and these new PoPs will ensure that our international clients can access the standard of connectivity required to support their own business expansion strategies now and in the coming years.

“The new PoPs in Asia complement Telstra International EMEA’s recent expansion in South Africa, Europe and the Middle East,” Mr Kelton said.

“The global economic trends are encouraging multinational organisations to look to new emerging markets for growth opportunities. Telstra International is facilitating this growth by partnering with the best carriers in each region, to assure the quality that our customers expect from our international services irrespective of where they may be in the world.”
