Tata to extend Ethernet service into China

Tata Communications is taking its Ethernet ambitions beyond its home border as it expands the service into China. Building on its current MPLS and IPLC capabilities it already offers there, Tata's Ethernet service suite will be sold as a retail service to enterprises and wholesale to carriers that want a global connection. Currently, Tata's global Ethernet service portfolio has points of presence (PoPs) in the U.S., Canada, 13 European countries, Russia, Qatar, UAE, South Africa, and with the addition of China, 12 Asia Pacific countries.

Tata is not going it completely alone in China, however. The service provider is working with Beijing-based China Enterprise Communications (CEC) to deliver the service to carrier and enterprise customers. Targeting China's major business hubs, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzen, the service will offer users their choice of global point to point, point to multipoint with PoP to PoP or end-to-end service guarantees.
