Dialog Axiata PLC in Sri Lanka and Multinet Pakistan (Private) Limited have entered into partnership to serve the global connectivity requirements of Sri Lankan and Pakistani companies. The goal is to leverage the strengths of both networks and deliver customized solutions to corporate customers doing business bilaterally. Both companies are dedicated towards creating seamless solutions at cost effective rates and deployed on an accelerated timeline. The combined network has been created via a ring architecture that is fully redundant in order to deliver optimal operational results to customers.
This collaboration will provide both Sri Lankan and Pakistani corporate customers access to a wide portfolio of international data, voice and video applications, in addition to value-added and managed services. Seamless and secure connectivity is ideal for companies that wish to minimize travel and do conferencing on-demand whilst simultaneously running other voice and data services on the same link.
