Etisalat Carrier and Wholesale Services has introduced its eGlobe Interconnect service for international carriers who can do business through Etisalat’s multiple Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world.
Two agreements have already been signed with telcos KPN and TATA Communications, and eGlobe Interconnect is also being extended to support all of Etisalat's subsidiary operators.

We can now meet them closer in their home country with a quick and simple solution for exchanging international telephone traffic,” said Ali Amiri, executive vice president, Etisalat Carrier Wholesale Services.
Operating within Etisalat’s existing business structure, Etisalat Carrier & Wholesale Services, offers value-added services to telecommunication companies in the Middle East and globally.
