Myanmar’s friend in need gets international license

Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) has predictably bagged the first “permission” to provide international data and voice services with “an authorized representative” of state-owned Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT). The HGC-MPT partnership dates back to 2007. Brushing aside the western sanctions, HGC kept transporting Myanmar’s overseas voice and data traffic using the Sino-ASEAN terrestrial link named GMS Network.

And HGC has proudly publicized it.

Now the government of Myanmar has blessed the corporate wedding of HGC and “an authorized representative” of MPT. HGC’s offer to Myanmar will include International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC) and the introduction of technology-neutral Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) for the provision of Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP-VPN) data services. Besides, HGC has established direct voice interconnection with MPT and is now authorized to terminate traffic into Myanmar, said a press release.
