NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AP Telecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, today announced a partnership with full-service communications company Guam Telecom (GTA) to monitor AP Telecom's rapidly expanding data and voice traffic in the Asia-Pacific region.

AP Telecom selected GTA NOC service to monitor its data and voice traffic based on the company's proven ability of providing world-class support to U.S. and regional carriers.  GTA's Disaster Recovery capability also delivers AP Telecom increased assurance of traffic continuity for their next generation low latency network.

"We are very excited to partner with AP Telecom and believe this relationship will prove to have a lasting impact on the world of telecommunications. AP Telecom's rapid regional success and global expansion plans are an excellent fit with GTA's world class NOC and Disaster Recovery service offering," said Roland Certeza, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Guam Telecom.
