Tata Communications has launched its next-generation Ethernet network in 24 nodes around the world, marking what it says is the industry’s first use of 802.1ah Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) on a global scale.

Tata said the upgrade will provide enhanced network services for both service providers and enterprises, enabling higher speed, enhanced security and improved troubleshooting capabilities.

According to the company, the network core carries only Ethernet traffic, “unlike competing operators who are building converged MPLS and VPLS-based networks to carry a mixture of private, public IP traffic and Ethernet services.”
