MUMBAI: Tata Communications is interested to become an anchor tenant customer on the cable system of Seaborn Networks.
Seabras-1, the cable system of Seaborn Network will enable Tata Communications to provide fully integrated network services from Brazil to its networks in the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and India.
Seaborn Networks, a operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, plans for the Seabras-1 system to be ready for service in the fourth quarter of 2014.
Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Communications, said, “Latin America is a key region on the world stage and our plan to purchase capacity on Seabras-1 would ensure we have the fastest route between Brazil’s major commercial centre and the US. It aligns us with the most viable new subsea project in one of the fastest growing markets in the world. This expansion would further extend the global reach of the Tata Global Network and forms part of our strategic global connectivity plans.”
