Tata Communications, of India, today announced the launch of a new 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE) service, which it says will help service providers meet growing market demands for high-speed, secure and cost-effective bandwidth.

   

The company says 10 GigE leverages its network to satisfy large-scale, wholesale needs for high-speed Ethernet technology across the Atlantic and Pacific and within Asia including India.

 

Available in 25 major cities in 11 countries worldwide, the service connects all key business centres over the self-owned TGN (Tata Global Network) cable system.

   

“Our availability in 25 cities worldwide is unmatched in the industry,” said John Hoffman, head of Ethernet Services for Tata. “This service gives customers the flexibility of using LAN Phy or WAN Phy interfaces.”

 

With a transparent pipe offering both LAN Phy and WAN Phy interfaces, 10 GigE features full-service frame transparency with no Quality of Service (QoS) restrictions.
