Gulf subsea cable system launched

Subsea-cableTata Communications launched the TGN-Gulf subsea cable system that will connect the Gulf region to India and to the rest of the Tata Global Network (TGN).

It 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, said a statement.

The system will initially offer speeds of up to 10G and a greater geographical reach for Tata Communications’ customers.

Radwan Moussalli, managing director, Middle East and North Africa (Mena), Tata Communications, said: “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.”

This new development is the latest in a series of expansions and upgrades to the TGN, and makes Tata Communications the only provider to offer a truly global network through its world-wide cable network.

“The TGN-Gulf cable will provide city-to-city connections in contrast to more traditional networks which only link cable landing stations. This approach is more cost-effective, flexible, provides a faster time to market and is easier to maintain and manage,” the company said in a statement.
