Xyntac: The Global Unit of Sri Lanka Telecom makes waves at the Asian Carriers Conference in Cebu
Xyntac, the global business unit of Sri Lanka Telecom PLC (SLT), obtained traction in the Asian region, with the brand being promoted at the Asian Carriers Conference (ACC) 2019 held in Cebu, Philippines recently.
The conference is one of the largest wholesale telco events in the Asia-Pacific region with approximately 1,400 delegates from 600 companies and representing 120 countries participating.
Following a highly successful launch of Xyntac at the International Telecoms Week (ITW) 2019, held in Atlanta, USA recently, SLT used the Cebu event to create awareness among the Asian telco community, promoting products and services in order to better position itself in the global market as a true global carrier.
Commenting on this exciting new milestone, ‘Xyntac Brand Promotion in the ACC 2019 was one of the key activities that the company planned for the year 2019 and this was a valuable opportunity for us in our journey to become a global player,’ said Mr. Kiththi Perera, Chief Executive Officer of SLT, commenting on this important milestone.
‘The telecom market in the Asia Pacific region is growing and we have plans of becoming a preferred partner among the Asian telco community while supporting this growth. The ACC was an ideal opportunity for us to better position our new brand Xyntac and its voice, data, connectivity and digital services portfolio. We received the full attention of the Asian telecom fraternity and were able to meet up with our current business partners as well as the general wholesale telco community,’ he further observed.
SLT has expanded its global IP network to cater to global requirements with the service portfolio now accommodating colocation, cloud and evolving digital services. As such SLT is now well on the way to reaching the stated objective of becoming a global player.
Xyntac’s Global ISP Service (ASN: 45489) has been ranked among the first 120 Global internet service providers and is proud to be the only Sri Lankan Telco to be listed among the global ISP giants. Xyntac will no doubt boost SLT’s plans to expand the business to new territories and emerging markets in the world.
