Xchanging ties up with YTL Communications

| Updated on: Apr 19, 2012

BPO provider Xchanging has announced a 50:50 joint venture with YTL Communications, a subsidiary of the Malaysia-based YTL Power International Bhd.

According to the joint venture, Xchanging will bring its systems integration capabilities to deliver services on YTL Communications’ 4G network. Services provided by Xchanging would include hosting services such as virtual servers, storage, anti-virus, Wi-fi gateways and location-based services (including GPS) amongst other solutions.

Also, it would deliver 4G internet services through the cloud and mobile applications developed specifically for 4G riding on YTL’s network. YTL Power International owns a 60 per cent stake in YTL Communications and runs a 2.3 GHz WiMAX wireless broadband network in Malaysia that was rolled out in November 2010 and the company, with this tie-up, wants to bring this expertise to India.

Mr Nimish Soni, Executive Director for APAC and Offshore Services said, “With the recent launch of 4G networks in the Indian market, companies will be preparing to leverage the advantages of 4G services to drive their businesses. Recently, Bharti Airtel launched its 4G services in Kolkata and other operators are expected to follow suit.

In India, Xchanging has 3,500 employees across its delivery centres in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Gurgaon, Chennai, Shimoga and Solan. Xchanging was founded by Mr David Andrews, a former partner of Andersen Consulting.
