From the tiny electromagnetic coil of the first telephone in 1876 to the fibre-optic network that circles the globe today, technology has not only revolutionised the way we communicate – it has transformed our world and the way we live.
The Internet, some say, is ubiquitous. Some call it a digital age. We call it the New World of Communications™.
Through our global network, the world’s largest, we’re proud to play a major role in the emergence of this new world. The Tata Communications Global Network reaches more than 240 countries and territories, 99.7% of the world’s GDP, millions of businesses, and billions of people. And it includes:
• One of the largest, most advanced subsea cable networks, 500,000 km long
• A terrestrial fibre network stretching 210,000 km
• A global Tier-1 IP network with more connections into more countries than any other carrier
• The world’s only fibre ring around the world
• The only Ethernet ring in the Middle East
• More than 1 million sq. ft. of data centre space in 44 locations worldwide
Our network carries a huge volume of the world’s voice and internet traffic.
In voice, we are the world’s largest wholesale carrier. Our network handles 1 out of every 10 international calls and connects more than 70% of the world’s mobile carriers. On the Internet, we’re a major Tier-1 IP provider, consistently ranked in the top five telecommunications companies on five continents, by internet route. In fact, we handle more than 24% of the global internet traffic, totalling more than 7600 petabytes a month.
But our network is much more than cables, connectors, and switches.
It’s about the businesses and people we serve. Our continuous efforts to innovate and our focus on customer needs, across a wide-range of industries, give us a clear understanding of the challenges our customers face and the solutions they require. Driven by this understanding, we’ve developed an award-winning portfolio of communication services that help them streamline and optimise virtually every aspect of their business.
