Data Access, Intelsat deal for satellite capacity

NEW DELHI: Data Access, which claims to be the country's fastest gowing telecom company has signed a multi-million dollar agreement with Intelsat. The deal will support Data Access' International Private Leased Circuits (IPLC).

Under this agreement, Data Access will utilise satellite capacity from Intelsat worth 100 Mbps over a multiyear period.

The deal marks Data Access' foray into the international IPLC business between India and Europe. The alliance will significantly boost Data Access' current capacity of 1024 Mbps on C & KU band to 1200 Mbps. Data Access will utilize capacity on multiple Intelsat transponders on the 704 satellite located at 66° E in geostationary orbit. Connectivity will be established from Data Access' Network Operating Centre (NOC) in Delhi to Intelsat's teleport in Fuchsstadt, Germany, via satellite. Traffic will be routed from Germany on fiber backhaul to Intelsat's London Point of Presence (PoP) to connect with Data Access' London PoP.

The founder and MD of Data Aceess Siddhartha Ray has been quoted in an official release saying, "We are glad to be working with Intelsat and look forward to a constructive and long-term relationship. The market potential of switched IPLC business in this sector is getting stronger with current volumes reaching 18 million minutes per year and estimated to go up to 90 million minutes per year by the end of 2006. Our existing world-class ILD infrastructure coupled with additional satellite capacity will further widen our horizons to enter other lucrative business segments."

With a unique 'hybrid' IP based network and a dedicated lean management team Data Access has set itself the goal of being the first global telecom player from the country. This year, it has become the first-ever Indian telecom company to be nominated for the prestigious 'World Communication Awards' under the 'Best Regional Carrier category, rubbing shoulders with fellow nominees Sing Tel, Belgacom, COLT Telecom and Easy Net. The company has rapidly expanded beyond our shores to developed and emerging markets such as the US, UK and Sri Lanka.
