Tata Communications, a global communications service provider and Videotron, one of Canada's largest integrated communications companies, have signed a mutually beneficial sourcing agreement. Under this agreement, Videotron will route 100% of its international voice traffic through Tata Communications network and Videotron will continue to be one of Tata Communications' key suppliers of telecommunication services in Canada.
Through the agreement, Tata Communications will become Videotron's sole provider of international voice termination. By tapping into Tata Communications' extensive and robust voice infrastructure, Videotron will be able to offer its customers higher quality international calls at competitive rates. Tata Communications' advanced voice traffic management tools will also allow Videotron to effectively manage operational costs and increase focus on its core businesses and key growth areas.
Tata Communications' strategic voice traffic outsourcing enables providers to leverage Tata Communications' scale and routing expertise while reducing their exposure in the low-margin, high-risk international voice termination business.
