Reliance Globalcom to rejig business

October 06, 2008 10:43 IST
Reliance Globalcom, the international telecom operations subsidiary of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group , is restructuring its business under four verticals in an attempt to further penetrate the $285-billion global communications market.

The company will structure its services under four business segments -- Data, voice, WiMax and National Long Distance services -- that would help it increase focus on customer segments and improve revenue generation.

"This will augment capabilities to offer highly customer-focused solutions to end-consumers and businesses, including enterprises, systems integrators and carriers, around the globe.

"This is an  important step towards making Reliance Globalcom one of the top five global communications enterprises," sources close to the development said.

The group will realign operations of Reliance Globalcom (formerly Flag Telecom), Reliance Globalcom Services (earlier acquired Yipes Enterprises) and Reliance Vanco Group (formerly Vanco  Group) under the four proposed verticals. Further details of the restructuring were not immediately available. An R-ADAG spokesperson declined to comment.

After the restructuring, the company's data business will compete with global majors such as AT&T, British Telecom Global Services, Orange Business Services and Verizon Business among others. 

Reliance Globalcom intends to service medium to large MNCs, either directly or through channel partners.

It expects the new structure to accelerate growth into the rapidly growing communications market by offering comprehensive voice, video and data network services.
