Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) and telecommunication company NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has announced that they agreed to expand NTT Com's MPLS-based Arcstar Global IP-VPN service in India with its second Point of Presence (POP) in Bangalore by the end of January, 2005.

MPLS is a technology that sets protocols and other standards for high-speed label switching in large networks; enables construction of IP-VPNs that use labels, not IP addresses, to determine destinations.

Following the launch of the service at Mumbai in May 2004, there was an increased demand of MPLS-based IP-VPN services from the enterprise customers of VSNL and NTT Communications at Bangalore which led to the decision of setting up a POP to serve the huge potential of IT and ITeS customers located in Bangalore and adjoining regions, informs an official release.

"Enriching and enhancing the suite of our services benefiting our customers is a constant endeavor at VSNL," said Tata Indicom president, Tata Indicom Enterprise Business Unit Sandeep Mathur.

"The partnership between VSNL and NTT Compositions us ideally to offer excellent routing options to our Enterprise Customers. Together we aim to provide our customers with cost effective and secured connectivity at the highest service levels," he added.

"We felt strong demands in Bangalore from our MNC (Mutinational
Corporations) customers," said Kimio Tamura, vice-president of NTT Com's Global Services Business Division. "The alliance between VSNL, India's largest international carrier, and NTT Com, recently awarded Best Global Carrier at WCA 2004, are the best matching to provide the world class service in India" he explained.

VSNL and NTT Com will jointly leverage their strengths to promote the sales activity of the service in and outside India. The two companies plan to host seminars for enterprise customers in New Delhi and Bangalore on 6 and 9 December.
