Bahrain’s Batelco has launched MPLS IP VPN interconnectivity services in Oman, in partnership with Omantel. Batelco will provide end-to-end MPLS VPN services to Bahrain and Oman-based businesses that wish to establish secure inter-office connectivity between both locations.

The service stems from a deal signed by the two telcos earlier in the year, which paved the way for bi-lateral data IP services to be sold between Bahrain and Oman. The deal also allowed the two telcos to extend corporate VPN solutions between their respective markets.

Adel Daylami, GM of Batelco’s enterprise division, said: “We are now in a position to extend rest of the world’s connectivity for our international customers and partners to all GCC, regional countries through Batelco’s Global IP VPN reliable, state of the art network.”

Johannes Boersma, senior manager capacity and submarine cables at Omantel, added: “We are delighted to announce the completion of this important project allowing our customers to have direct connectivity with their offices in Bahrain as well in other countries covered by Batelco's extensive reach. This is yet another step to enhance the international managed services offerings that we provide to Oman businesses.”
