Telstra has been given the green light to operate in Singapore and Japan, securing telecoms operator licences for those two countries.

The licences allow Telstra to own infrastructure facilities and be directly responsible for services delivered to customers locally in both countries.

In November Telstra secured three new telecommunications licences in India via a joint venture with Microland to offer international and national long-distance telecommunications and ISP services.

Telstra International Group MD Tarek Robbiati said the licences will allow Telstra to leverage assets gained following the Reach restructure and will benefit international customers with multi-country operations in Asia.

The expansion will also give Telstra greater control over its services, with access to a more comprehensive suite of connectivity and managed services, better network performance, complete monitoring, local contract billing capabilities, and in-country service centre support, he said.

In Singapore, Telstra’s new Facilities Based Operator (FBO) licence allows it to own and operate telecommunications infrastructure such as voice and data networks, systems and facilities locally. The carrier will also be able to build the local backbone required to support its plans for new cable submarine capacity to Singapore.

In Japan, Telstra Japan KK secured a Registration Type licence. The licence allows Telstra to own and operate large scale telecoms circuits and facilities in multiple cities and prefectures in Japan, along with products and services delivered over those facilities and networks.

“Telstra will have greater control over network architecture design, and be in a strong position to optimise performance, multi-level resiliency, redundancy and reliability,” Robbiati said. ®
