Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) has signed a dual strategic initiative to provide its IP transit solutions to CMC Telecom in Hong Kong and Singapore, while the latter will deploy a Virtual Point of Presence (vPoP) for GCX in Hanoi. CMC Telecom is a Vietnam-based firm, while GCX is the submarine cable unit of the Anil Ambani-controlled Reliance Communications (RCom).

CMC Telecom, in turn, will get access to GCX’s high-performance IP Transit global network, GCX said in a statement.
