Telstra Global can now operate and sell telecom carrier services to multinational corporations (MNCs) and carrier customers in Taiwan.
Telstra Global said the National Communications Commission (NCC) in Taiwan granted them the Operation Licence for Type II Telecommunications Business in June 2013. With this licence, Telstra Global can deliver network services inside and outside of Taiwan as well as solidify its position as network capabilities provider to MNCs based in the country.
The licence also provides the opportunity for Telstra Global to expand its Points of Presence (PoPs) in Taiwan. It also enhances the company’s service-level offering and resiliency.
Aside from extending in-country billing to customers, Telstra can now purchase local loops from the Taiwanese suppliers directly. This enables the company to offer improved and more cost-effective hosting and virtualisation solutions to its customers in Taiwan.
With operations in 12 countries across Asia Pacific, Telstra Global continues to support strategic market segments and drive sales in Taiwan as well as throughout the rest of the region.
“We have previously completed successful applications for operational licences in both Japan and Korea, and were keen to ensure the level of support and product offerings were available for our customers in Taiwan, or who are looking to grow and expand their business into the region,” said Andrew Wildblood, Telstra Global Head, Asia Pacific.
