TNZI to quadruple its European network

Rene Sugo Rene Sugo

Tier 1 voice carrier TNZI is set to double its European network operator’s capacity by May 2016.

The expansion program will double call capacity in all existing PoPs - with the potential to quadruple capacity going forward.

This will significantly increase the rate at which TNZI can establish call connections through the network.

The first stage of the six-month program—upgrade of TNZI’s London Point of Presence (PoP)—was completed last week.

The next stage, costing approximately US$4 million, is the introduction of a range of value-added software-as-a-service (SaaS) functionality, creation of new PoP facility in Hong Kong to better serve the Asian market; and upgrades to existing TNZI Los Angeles, Sydney and Auckland PoPs.

Rene Sugo, CEO of the MNF Group said, “This expansion program will impact the Australian market by increasing the Australian capacity to send voice traffic to and from Europe and the Pacific region."

Clint Davis, TNZI Manager of Global Platform & Networks added that TNZI’s new and upgraded PoPs will support a range of SaaS offerings that will enable Tier 2 market players and emerging providers to create additional value for their end-users.

He said, “The upgrade program will enable us to offer our growing global client base new-generation enhanced services, while ensuring that we are well-placed for future expansion.

“The aim is to become the ‘go to’ carrier for those providers who are looking to innovate in the voice space.

“The increased capacity will support a range of value-added SaaS solutions, including white-label hosted telephony, DID phone numbers, number porting and toll free number services that TNZI is introducing to meet the needs of specialised providers within the global wholesale market.”

"Emerging and Over the Top (OTT) Tier 2 providers increasingly look for specialised voice carriage networks. For example many call centres now source their own wholesale carriage and require services that deliver high capacity, reliable contact solutions with cleverly optimised inbound and outbound routing. MNF Group acquired TNZI, the global wholesale voice business of Spark New Zealand Limited, in April 2015.

"Today’s announcement demonstrates its commitment to continuously improve TNZI’s technical platform and service offering to meet the changing needs of the global communications industry and drive growth."
