Tata Communications has emerged from its role as an incumbent Indian service provider to become a globally recognized provider of network connectivity services such as MPLS, Ethernet and IP transit as well as managed hosting in data centers, voice, data, and video.
It was also rated as a strong performer in the Forrester Wave on Managed Global MPLS Q1 2013- a rather impressive showing for a service provider that only just joined this year’s edition of the MPLS Wave report.
More importantly, it has started to become relevant to enterprise network connectivity buyers across Asia Pacific, which is detailed in my report, “Tata Communications Emerges As A Leading Connectivity Provider In Asia Pacific”.
What It Means
Tata Communications' strength is in providing managed network services. In other areas, the company must still ramp up its capabilities to address the needs of enterprise customers. For instance, Tata Communications offers public cloud services, but these services are geared towards an entry level, ‘pay-as-you-use’ compute and storage model. Its hybrid and private cloud solutions are available on a customised basis. More unified communications services are expected to be rolled out in the coming months.
With that in mind, if your enterprise is expanding in Asia, consider Tata Communications for connectivity services and voice connections. For other services like IaaS and enterprise video services, however, continue monitoring Tata Communication’s progress in delivering the capabilities and services necessary to meet the needs of enterprise accounts.
