Telstra wins fixed Indian licences

Rolling out in seven cities

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Telstra has secured three new telecommunications licences in India via a joint venture with Microland.

The licences allows the Australian carrier and its local partner to provide customers in India with international and national long-distance telecommunications and ISP services.

The new licences will see Telstra International begin with the provision of services in seven cities - Bangalore, Calcutta, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, with services set to roll out within six months.

Mumbai and Chennai will be Telstra’s Indian international gateways connecting into its international backbone network with direct routes into networks in Europe and Asia.

“Telstra International operates one of the largest and most diverse networks in Asia Pacific. This development reinforces our foothold as an Asian network specialist and communications service provider with offices and licences in 12 Asia Pacific countries”, said Tarek Robbiati, Group Managing Director for Telstra International Group .

The carrier will target international MNCs in addition to Indian multinationals and is bidding for contracts with domestic IT, ITeS and BPO companies. Telstra indicated that it would also be investing in a local data centre but has yet to decide whether it will build its own or choose a local partner. ®
