Tata Communications announces the completion of the round-the-world fibre optic cable network with the official launch of its Tata Global Network — Eurasia (TGN-EA) cable. The cable connects Europe to India, through Egypt, bringing increased capacity, resilience, latency, redundancy, scalability and enhanced communications links to not only the Middle East, but to the rest of the world.

The 9,280 km TGN-EA system which links Europe and India, running across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, uses fibre-optic technology based on microscopic glass fibres as thin as a strand of human hair, and offers customers the lowest levels of latency with RTD around 92 msec with speeds from 2Mbit/s to 10Gbit/s available. Tata Communications owns and operates the world's largest subsea cable network which reaches countries representing 99.7 per cent of the world's GDP.

This cable network seamlessly links markets across Asia, Middle East, the U.S. and Europe to meet rising demand for 24/7 commerce. In conjunction with the company's recently launched TGN-Gulf these routes will cater to the increasing demand for voice, video and data services in and out of the Gulf region.

"This a landmark moment for Tata Communications as we officially launch the world's first wholly-owned global submarine cable network as a complete and robust ring around the world," said Vinod Kumar, managing director and CEO, Tata Communications.
