Verizon Teams with Dialog to Expand IP Network Reach in Sri Lanka

Multinational businesses can leverage the new network alliance Verizon has formed with Dialog Axiata PLC that will expand Verizon’s Private IP network capabilities to Sri Lanka.

The joint agreement allows Verizon to join with Dialog Axiata to service large-enterprise customers in Sri Lanka, which becomes the 16th Asia-Pacific country in which Verizon offers its Private IP services.

Verizon and Dialog Axiata will use a technology called packet-optical transport platform (P-OTP) to extend Private IP services to Sri Lanka. P-OTP is a robust and economical platform that integrates a combination of connection modes, enabling Verizon to create the manageable and scalable capabilities required to support the growing demand of packet-based services. This network platform gives multinational customers an opportunity to receive end-to-end global Private IP services from the growing business region of Sri Lanka to the rest of the world.

Sri Lanka is an increasingly important market to our global enterprise customers”,  said Yali Liu, director of network planning and engineering at Verizon.   Our agreement with Dialog Axiata enables our customers to use Private IP services for their business needs in Sri Lanka”.
Verizon Private IP customers benefit from six classes of service (CoS), which enable latency-sensitive applications, such as VoIP and video, to receive priority over applications such as email.
Private IP’s ability to prioritize applications and to provide advanced reporting tools for network and application performance to the desktop and user level makes the offering an ideal global platform for business communications and day-to-day operations. The new P-OTP node will help enable Dialog Axiata’s corporate customers in Sri Lanka to experience resiliency and enhanced performance when using the Private IP communications services.

We are privileged to team with and provide expertise in Sri Lanka to Verizon, a company with consistent customer-centric focus. Together we will offer great opportunity for global customers to come on board by using reliable, cost-effective solutions that enable them to be competitive in the markets they choose to serve”,  said Suresh Sidhu, group chief officer-enterprise and global business, Dialog Axiata.

The Sri Lanka node will be an extension of Verizon’s global network. With the Sri Lankan economy  particularly business-processing outsourcing and other key industries  poised to grow rapidly over the next decade, the network alliance enables Verizon to serve a wide spectrum of business customers and provide them with seamless connectivity via customized solutions. The new platform also enables 24/7 connectivity, which global business requires.
Dialog Axiata will continue its metro Ethernet project in Colombo, the largest city in Sri Lanka, placing fiber-optic cabling directly into business premises. During the last three years, fiber has been installed in key business sections of Colombo, which has enabled Dialog Axiata to provide end-to-end seamless connectivity. The reach of Dialog Axiata’s domestic network includes its MPLS network around the country and fully redundant connectivity to business premises via fiber and wireless solutions.
