In an era of evolving consumption patterns and explosion of new content, broadcasters, content owners and sports rights holders need a connectivity partner that possesses a global footprint, provides scalable, resilient solutions and offers versatile modes of delivery.

Tata Communications’ global contribution and distribution solution is built for enterprises to help them accomplish two main tasks:

  • Reduce their capital outlay for technology by providing them with innovative commercial models for media connectivity solutions so that they can focus on content production and acquisition.
  • Grow their global footprint by reaching diverse audiences with high-quality content, by creating the most suitable hybrid distribution model that leverages a mix of traditional and cutting-edge options.

Tata Communications’ hybrid contribution and distribution solutions combine our dedicated media-grade fibre network and cutting-edge compressed video transfer over the internet to the last-mile supported by traditional satellite distribution where needed. This overcomes regional distribution challenges, achieves desirable resilience and optimises costs.

Our experience in live contribution also drives remote production services for top sporting brands.

Super-dense Network Architecture

Our media-ready network runs on our global IP-based backbone that covers 99.7% of the global GDP. With over 700,000km of subsea and terrestrial fibre cable, our tier-1 network has 350+ media hotspots and a strong penetration into key global broadcasters, media hubs and content platforms.

With an aggressive expansion roadmap, our footprint is poised to grow, promising best-in-class availability, resiliency and reach across six continents.

Innovation & Upgrades Make Us Future-ready

Constant upgrades to the core infrastructure, as well as our history of global-firsts in enabling next-gen broadcast technologies on our network, embody our corporate spirit of ‘always in beta’ – incremental innovation to remain an industry leader.

In addition to our recent 100G upgrade to our media backbone, we are proud of our work with leading sports brands to enable the world’s first Live 2K, 4K, 8K and 360-degree video streams from venues around the world.

End-to-end Deployment & Managed Services

With a world-class infrastructure, Tata Communications is also home to a world-class team of media experts, with decades of experience in the industry working with leading broadcasters and content owners in their transformation journeys.

Our professional services team adapts to customer schedules and requirements to manage on-site deployment and last-mile facilitation.

Our media service operations centre provide a round-the-clock monitoring service so threats and issues can be addressed in real-time.

Bundled With Core Connectivity & Security Services

In addition to our comprehensive suite of media services, Tata Communications also offers core connectivity services to enterprises through leased lines, public internet and software-defined WAN. Moreover, our unified threat management and DDoS services ensure a layer of security.

This seamless integration of multiple delivery technologies unlocks tremendous synergies and reduces vendor management time and effort, with a single contract to manage it all.
