Bahrain’s Batelco Group and Oman’s Omantel have signed an agreement that will allow them both to sell data IP services between Bahrain and Oman and provide transit services to each other’s carrier partners.
The deal was signed by Adel Daylami, Batelco’s general manager for enterprise and government division, and Johannes Boersma, Omantel’s senior manager for capacity and submarine, on the sidelines of the International Telecoms Week (ITW) held in Chicago, US, on May 14-16.
The agreement will allow the two telcos to offer end-to-end MPLS VPN services to Bahrain and Oman-based businesses that want secure inter-office connectivity between both locations.
Daylami said the deal was an important addition to Batelco’s portfolio of OSS agreements. “Links for Batelco’s international customers and partners can now be extended to all GCC countries through Batelco’s Global IP VPN reliable, state of the art network,” he said.
