The Connection Service Provider, Mastertel, along with the Oversun Group of Companies, have signed a collaboration agreement. According to this agreement the two Partners will provide the Oversun-Mercury data-centre premium class subscribers with the additional service "last mile".
Mastertel and the Oversun Holding (corporate sector provider of scaled IT services) have both signed the joint agreement, which sees Mastertel providing the Oversun-Mercury data-centre with connection channels.
Igor Yoshpa, Director of Development at the Oversun Group, said: "Oversun-Mercury is already connected through its own optical channels with the main Russian connection nodes, MMTS № 9 and MMTS № 10. These provide reliable dedicated Internet connections. The partnership with Mastertel gives us additional opportunities to create dedicated connection channels and to provide the additional "last mile" service. As a result of our partnership, the service subscriber will benefit by receiving reliable and high quality telecommunications services".
"Within the framework of the partnership agreement, clients of the Oversun-Mercury data-centre may avail of the full range of telecommunications services, including data transmission services and the creation of point-to-point channels. This is in addition to the possibility to rent or purchase fibre optic lines (to create connection channels leading to any represented point within Moscow). This joint project will give Oversun-Mercury clients the opportunity to significantly optimize their telecommunications services expenses, and to increase the quality and scaling of their corporate services," commented Vitaly Ezopov, Mastertel's Executive Director.
During this project, Mastertel carried out the laying of fibre-optic cables to the data-centre. This was achieved by building the "last mile" from the Master-Connect network (which is the company's massive infrastructure base) and enables us to solve network interaction tasks, to introduce new telecommunications services and to reconstruct existing connection networks. The Master-Connect network allows the opportunity to create a rigid, complete network infrastructure, which defines its character, both from the point of architecture and cabling.
