P&O Maritime to add Papua New Guinea followed by more locations throughout Europe and UAE in 2018

P&O Maritime, a fully owned subsidiary of Dubai-based DP World, has announced that it will be extending its partnership with Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications Ltd, by adding more sites to its expansive Global WAN maintained by GCX, the company said.

Currently, P&O Maritime uses GCX services for a fully managed end-to-end Hybrid Network Solution connecting many worldwide P&O Maritime sites; many of these are located in regions with a difficult telecommunications environment such as Mozambique, Argentina and Paraguay. Soon P&O Maritime will be expanding this network relationship initially in Papua New Guinea followed by more locations throughout Europe and UAE in 2018, keeping pace with the rapid growth in P&O´s business.

GCX is the operator of the world´s largest privately owned submarine cable infrastructure spanning over 68,000km around the globe integrated with another 200,000km of domestic fibre optic backbone allows us to deploy solutions ranging from full capacity ´IRU´ leasing on sub-sea routes through to fully resilient and scalable global Hybrid-WAN deployments reaching over 158 countries.
