Bharti Airtel Opens 3rd International Gateway

Bharti Airtel Opens 3rd International GatewayBharti Airtel in association with China Telecom Corporation today announced the commencement of a direct underground terrestrial link between India and China.

The new terrestrial link will offer robust network and seamless connectivity to customers transiting India or China to reach key global destinations.

With this network, Bharti airtel now establishes a third International Gateway for customers in India.

Built over one of the most hostile terrains, Bharti airtel and China Telecom have constructed the network in their respective territories from Siliguri to Nathula border in India and Nathula border to Yadong in China.

This network will address the surging international traffic and diversity requirements of both the nations. In India, the high speed network spans from Siliguri gateway to Nathula via Pedong on one path and the second path will reach Siliguri from Nathula via Gangtok forming a ring.

Bharti airtel has also inked MoU with China Telecom to develop the Network to Network Interconnect (NNI) which allows seamless access to the combined regional and global network resources of both the operators.

The link is for data connectivity with other nations. it also helps in getting the ISD rates cheaper. for a common consumer it might not impact in short term but in long term the same can be used for cheaper broadband and ISD. These are also used by ISPs and large corps to connect their offices to other nations.
