Earlier in March, I wrote about how Tata Communications has circumnavigated the globe with its wholly owned cable network. Here’s an Infographic that shows the locations of earth stations, cable landing stations, points of presence and Global Meeting Exchange hubs of its global network.
Microsoft Corp, Tata Communications, ACT Conferencing, and Kathea have joined the Open Visual Communications Consortium (OVCC).
The OVCC is an independent group of leading service and solution providers creating the blueprint to deliver high-quality video collaboration that connects any vendor, any network and any device, anywhere.
There are now 23 members in the OVCC.
Tata Communications has completed the world’s first wholly owned fibre-optic cable network ring around the world.
This is following the official launch of its Tata Global Network – Gulf (TGN-Gulf) and Eurasia (TGN-EA) cables.
Tata Communications is a global communications service provider that owns and operates the world’s largest subsea cable network.
Tata Global Network covers nearly 20% of the world’s Internet routes reaching over 240 countries and territories. These countries constitute 99.7 per cent of the world’s GDP.
Singapore-headquartered Tata Communications is now designated a “Technology Supplier of Formula 1”, with category exclusive designations as “Official Connectivity Provider of Formula 1” and “Official Web Hosting and Content Delivery Network of Formula1.com”.
Tata Communications will deliver connectivity to all 20 Formula 1 race locations over its global network, the largest in the world.
It will also provide hosting and content delivery services to Formula1.com, which is accessed by tens of millions of fans around the globe.
Telecom industry leaders has joint forces to form Global Meeting Alliance.
Tata Communications and nine other telecom leaders (including Telstra and Sprint) pledge their commitment today to interconnect their business video communities – driving global cross-network collaboration.
Launch members include Safaricom in Africa, Telstra in Australia, Etisalat, Qtel and Mobily in the Middle East, Neotel in South Africa and Sprint, Glowpoint and TELUS in North America.
The Global Meeting Alliance is an open ecosystem that allows any service provider to connect to enterprises and institutions on all major continents, irrespective of carrier, following a similar business model to the airline alliance networks.
Singapore Headquartered Tata Communications maintained strong revenue growth across operations (for the quarter ended 31 December, 2011), with gross revenues increasing 19% year-on-year (YoY).
The main takeaways from the report are summarised below:
- Core Business remains profitable
- Neotel sees further enhancement in operating profitability
- Focused cash management program on track
- Capex programme is aligned to demand and is pursuing predictable & strategic growth-oriented opportunities
