New Delhi, India, February 01, 2015: Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications, has been positioned in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global for the second year in a row. The Magic Quadrant evaluates companies based on ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute’.
According to Gartner, “The number of organizations requiring global networking services continues to grow, due to globalization and the growing adoption of cloud services, which are often hosted in markets that differ from the point of consumption. Organizations’ appetite for more bandwidth shows no signs of diminishing. IT centralization, cloud adoption and the continued growth of applications such as video, machine-to-machine communications and big data are the primary drivers. Reliability and performance control are growing in importance, as business processes become ever-more IT-dependent; in addition, IT architectures (such as thin-client computing) place ever-greater reliance on the network.”
Sumeet Walia, Head of Global Enterprise Business, Tata Communications, says, “For the second year running, we have been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global. We believe this is testament to our ongoing commitment in driving our network capabilities forward, whilst extending coverage in both developed and emerging markets. We have combined an aggressive expansion of our existing network footprint with the introduction of new services to our portfolio, such as our game changing IZO network platform for enhanced hybrid cloud enablement. At the heart of everything we do is the primary focus of ensuring sustained customer and partner satisfaction, helping businesses stay one step ahead of their competition.”
Tata Communications’ strategy is based on its strong network presence in the emerging and developed markets, its portfolio of IP and cloud services, strategic partnerships and its transformation to a managed services business model.
Genius Wong, Senior Vice President, Global Network Services, Tata Communications, adds, “We are constantly taking steps to expand and strengthen our network and evolve our services to meet the changing needs of our customers. We are delighted that our progress in MPLS, Ethernet and SIP trunking along with our emphasis on operational excellence has enabled us to continue to lead the way for another year across both developed and emerging markets.”
Tata Communications owns and operates the world’s largest and most advanced subsea fibre cable network. Today, over 24% of the world’s Internet routes travel over Tata Communications’ network, and the company is the only Tier-1 provider that is in the top five by routes in five continents.
