Tata Communications

What we do in F1®

Supporting the global
business of Formula 1®

World-class service for a world-class sport

In our fifth year as the Official Connectivity Provider for Formula 1, Tata Communications has enabled innovations across multiple spheres of the business of Formula One Management (FOM). Connecting FOM circuits and offices all over the world on our network, has itself resulted in an initial tenfold speed increase.

We help Formula One Management work smarter and more securely, by hosting their essential IT infrastructure. Enabling remote operations for the live broadcast production has created efficiencies of 50% cost savings by reducing trackside infrastructure, logistics and presence. This partnership is a true culmination of our pursuit for excellence in innovation, the capabilities of our network and the expertise of delivering extreme reliability and security.
