      GlobeCast, satellite service subsidiary of France Telecom [NYSE: FTE], has extended the reach of its global ATM fiber network to Sydney, providing connectivity between Australia and points of presence in media hubs of Europe, the Americas and Asia. The fiber link to Sydney, which routes via the SingTel fiber system, was inaugurated this month with delivery of Rugby World Cup feeds on behalf of European networks France Televisions (France 2) and S4C Wales.

      The fiber network interconnects GlobeCast teleports and technical operations centers worldwide for point-to-point video and data delivery between hubs, as well as access to Paris-based GlobeCast’s network of direct-to-home and cable satellite platforms.
