Tata Communications, a leading global digital infrastructure provider, has been named as a Leader in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global for the seventh consecutive year. [1]


The Gartner Magic Quadrant assesses providers’ completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to the report, “Enterprises need greater network agility to support digital initiatives, and global network service providers are supplying new services in response.”






Genius Wong, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Communications, comments, “We have made a number of significant enhancements to our global network offering in the past 12 months, including the launch of our IZO SD-WAN and SD-WAN virtual lab capabilities, among others. These important developments have enabled Tata Communications to reinforce its position as a best-of-breed strategic partner for businesses looking to innovate and achieve sustainable growth – without sacrificing efficiency.”

According to Gartner, “The network service market is undergoing a major transformation, with new generations of software-based network technologies enabling new services and new business models that are less focused on large-scale infrastructure. To reflect these trends, this Magic Quadrant focuses on transformational technologies and/or approaches that address the future needs of end users, as well as today’s market.”


Genius Wong, adds, “It’s no secret that IT environments are becoming more complex, with enterprise networks facing increasing demands as companies look for ways to drive innovation and deliver efficiencies. In an ever-changing, digital-first world, connectivity remains the backbone of the enterprise and business performance increasingly depends on super-fast, secure, stable and reliable networks. With the world’s largest enterprise global Tier-1 network, Tata Communications is committed to helping its customers drive productivity and growth by delivering agile, scalable, open, cloud-driven networking solutions and services.”


Tata Communications has a strong network coverage for its core network and strong momentum for next-gen network services with its IZO™ portfolio and cloud connectivity. This portfolio of services, as well as Tata Communications’ other network, cloud, mobility IoT, collaboration and security solutions that enable enterprises to digitally transform are all underpinned by the company’s global network infrastructure that reaches countries

representing ~98% of the world’s GDP.
