BICS owns a 40 Gbps-capacity, MPLS-enabled pan-European network which extends into nine European countries: the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Luxemburg, UK and Belgium. We recently replaced our TDM switching platforms with a Next Generation Network solution that spans our entire footprint.
Our international network includes over 500 direct connections in 160+ countries, capacity on 75 submarine cables (including the TAT-14, SMW3, FLAG, Yellow and SAT-3) with 200 landing points, participation in the Intelsat and Eutelsat satellite systems, and over 300 bilateral agreements with other operators. To secure capacity between Europe and Asia for future requirements, and to add physical redundancy, we invested in the EIG (Europe India Gateway) cable system through our partner Omantel.
For mobile data, we operate our own signalling, SMS, MMS and GRX platforms, which connect up to 400 mobile networks across the globe. Peering connections have been established with over 30 hubbing providers to extend BICS' reach to the overall mobile community.
