New internet data centre and the TGN-Intra Asia Cable aimed at driving
global connectivity and reliability
These investments are a key part of the company’s commitment to enhance its robust global infrastructure as part of its $2-billion expansion plan over three years. The Tata Communications Exchange and the TGN-Intra Asia Cable System are integral parts of the Tata Global Network (TGN) that includes one of the most advanced and largest submarine cable networks, a tier-1 IP platform and more than 1 million square feet of data centre and co-location facilities worldwide.
Tata Communications Exchange
“The Asian market continues to be promising, even in the current economic environment. Businesses need to capitalise on the opportunities this region provides, and investments in Asia are critical for the growth of global business,” said Vinod Kumar, president and chief operating officer for Tata Communications. “Our large-scale investment in the Tata Communications Exchange, coupled with our submarine cable build-out, ensures scalability and global reach while delivering our commitment to meet customer requirements. We will continue to be an active leader in offering superior services into emerging regions where we see high growth potential and opportunities for customers.”
Building on Tata Communications’ extensive global submarine cable and tier-1 internet protocol (IP) network, the new data centre will deliver co-location, managed hosting, managed storage and value-added services. Tata Communications will provide its global customers the added flexibility to remain competitive through centrally- managed solutions with high quality of service.
