Tata Communications has emerged as a leading connectivity provider in Asia Pacific, according to a newly released report by Forrester.

The company has spread its wings outside India and now offers a low-latency network connecting major financial capitals in Asia, the UK, and the US. 

Covering London, Singapore, Chicago, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and New York City, Tata Communications’ network offers a pure multipoint Ethernet platform to the financial services sector and other global industries. 

The company is addressing the demand of customers who require an enterprise services provider that can cover all of Asia. This goal is achieved by establishing an international headquarters in Singapore with points of presence in Australia, China, Japan, Taiwan, and other Southeast Asian countries.

“Tata Communications has emerged from its role as an incumbent Indian service provider to become a globally recognised provider of network connectivity services such as MPLS, Ethernet and IP transit as well as managed hosting in data centres, voice, data, and video,” said Clement Teo, senior analyst, Forrester Research.

Good potential partner

Tata Communications is a good potential partner for government, banking, financial services and insurance industry and entertainment organisations that want to tap emerging markets.

The company can offer good business partnership as it is a strong Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) provider and has experience in emerging markets. 

Tata Communications has a good overall MPLS strategy and near-term strategic plans that contributes towards expansion of its services and coverage area.

Using its hubs in India and South Africa, the company serves markets in the Middle East and Africa, respectively. It also serves the emerging Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand markets through a third hub in Singapore.

Currently, Tata Communications is focusing on vertical segments and want to provide vertically focused enterprise solutions. It intends to target several sectors such as government and manufacturing with IT-enabled services in the Asia Pacific region.

It will also deliver network connectivity, network security, business video, and data centre colocation in this location.
