This cable system connects the Gulf to Mumbai, India and onward to the rest of the Tata Global Network (TGN) and it would 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 would 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 cable network boasts significant depth in key emerging markets including China, India, South Africa as well as the Gulf region and currently covers nearly 20% of the world's internet routes reaching over 240 countries and territories.

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. It is well positioned to meet the ever-growing demand for high-bandwidth voice and data services, lower latencies, higher uptimes and seamless scalability.”
