Tata Communications Completes World’s First Wholly Owned Cable Network Ring Around The World

Tata Communications, a leading provider of The New World of Communications, today announces the completion of the world’s first round-the-world fibre optic cable network with the official launch of its Tata Global Network – Eurasia (TGN-EA) cable. The cable connects Europe to India, through Egypt, bringing increased capacity, resilience and enhanced communications links to not only the Middle East, but to the rest of the world.

The completion of the final link across Egypt enables Tata Communications to offer its customers unique access to a wholly-owned express route cable from Europe to India with improved latency, redundancy and scalability. In conjunction with the company’s recently launched TGN-Gulf these routes will cater to the increasing demand for voice, video and data services in and out of the Gulf region.

Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Communications, says, “Our customers, whether a European auto-manufacturer, an Asian hotel group or a large U.S. financial services firm, need to compete in global markets and are demanding faster and more reliable worldwide connectivity. Companies and carriers in developed and emerging economies require the confidence and security delivered by a wholly-owned network such as Tata Communications’ TGN.”

The round-the-world ring also offers city-to-city connections in contrast to more traditional networks which only link cable landing stations. This approach is more cost-effective, flexible and provides a faster time to market delivery, as well as being easier to maintain and manage.

The completion of the final TGN-EA link follows significant investment from Tata Communications in its global network in recent years. The TGN-EA cable system now interconnects Europe, India, the Gulf and Middle East seamlessly with the rest of the world while consistently providing higher quality bandwidth on a global scale. Tata Communications owns and operates the world’s largest subsea cable network which reaches countries representing 99.7 per cent of the world’s GDP.
