Tata Communications today said it has tied up with North American interconnection and colocation data centre operator Telx for providing solutions to its customers in the US.
The tie-up would leverage each firm's colocation space in their respective countries of operation, Tata Communications said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange.
"This agreement enables Tata Communications to leverage its position of strength in the global communications market while extending its reach in US market through local facilities of Telx," Tata Communications President and COO Vinod Kumar said.
Tata Communications' customers requiring US data centre space or access to the Telx internet exchange would be able to do so, the filing said.
The two companies will also work together to package joint solutions, including Tata Communications' managed security, data centre services and transformation services to enhance capabilities offered to their shared clients, it said.
"We continually strive to partner with well established providers. By forging this strategic alliance with Tata Communications, we are to better serve our clients with additional footprint options and a broader services mix that are critical to their business," Telx CEO Eric Shepcaro said.
