(MENAFN Press) TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC), today announced it has expanded its worldwide network with a Point of Presence (PoP) in Oman. Partnering with Oman Telecommunication Company (Omantel), the leading provider of telecommunications services in the Sultanate of Oman, TSIC will offer an extensive portfolio of IP, Ethernet, international voice and IPX-based services.



TSIC has worked with Middle Eastern operators for over 20 years and now continues to build on its position as a major international voice aggregator and one of the top providers of Internet backbone routes to the region.

Partnering with Oman's leading wholesale telecommunications provider was a natural choice in the expansion of our network allowing us to meet growing customer demands for high performance connectivity.



Dr. Amer Al Rawas, CEO of Omantel, adds, "Oman's geographical advantage being a natural hub enabled Omantel to become as a key interconnection point for international carriers. Partnering with TSIC positions us as a true link between the East and the West. It has expanded our visibility and positioned Omantel as the go-to provider for international carriers and service providers seeking to do business in Oman as well as the rest of the Middle East."



Ranked one of the top two global IP backbone providers by Internet intelligence authority Renesys, TSIC owns and operates its 100G-enabled, award-winning fiber network with over 200 PoPs worldwide and undergoing continuous network expansion.
