Tata Communications, a global communications service provider that owns and operates the world’s largest sub-sea cable network, on Thursday launched its TGN-Gulf sub-sea cable system that will connect the Gulf to Mumbai, India and onward to the rest of the Tata Global Network (TGN).
In partnership with Nawras of Oman, Etisalat of UAE, Qtel of Qatar, Bahrain Internet Exchange of Bahrain, and Mobily of Saudi Arabia, the TGN cable system is the first TGN cable to serve the Gulf region and will offer network access to UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, providing carriers and businesses with a direct route into the emerging markets of the Gulf region. The TGN-Gulf cable system will provide companies based in the region, and those looking to expand into these markets, with business-critical capacity for broadband data and high quality voice services.
The TGN-Gulf cable system will initially offer speeds of up to 10G and a greater geographical reach for Tata Communications’ customers, providing a critical backbone for economic development across the Gulf region.
" The TGN-Gulf subsea cable system will act as the foundation for growth and technological innovation for businesses in one of the fastest growing emerging markets in the world. It is well positioned to meet the ever-growing demand for high-bandwidth voice and data services, lower latencies, higher uptimes and seamless scalability”, Radwan Moussalli, Managing Director, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Tata Communications.
