New PoPs in four major cities to deliver international connectivity solutions to enterprise customers in India.

Pacnet, a provider of managed data connectivity solutions, recently expanded its footprint in India by establishing points of presence (PoPs) in major cities, including Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and New Delhi.

Pacnet, which has always been focused on the telecommunications market as well as the enterprise and government sector, will tap the PoPs to target the same markets in one of the Asia Pacific region's largest markets, the company said.

"We continue to see the trend of Enterprises based in India expanding into international markets, especially into the Asia Pacific Region, as well as companies based in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific with needs to connect their locations in India," said Cardi Prinzi, president, Enterprise Markets, Pacnet. 

The PoPs will enable Pacnet's enterprise customers and carriers to avail of Pacnet's servies, such as IP Virtual Private Network (IP VPN) including MPLS, Ethernet International Private Lines (EIPL), International Private Lines (IPL), IP Transit and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA).  

Pacnet said the four cities were selected because they represent some of the largest markets in the country in terms of contribution to gross domestic product (GDP). Pacnet's infrastructure in these cities will further booth the cities economic growth.

Pacnet said it is bullish in investing in the country because of anticipated demand for international connectivity.

The four PoPs will be backed by Pacnet's international gateway PoP in Chennai with interconnection to Singapore. Pacnet's international connectivity is further supported by Pacnet's EAC-C2C subsea cable and Pacnet's trans-Pacific cable EAC Pacific. The company said "these connections allow businesses in India to get access to high-speed connectivity into Asia, as well as on to the US through a single network."
