Tata Communications receives 2011 India Frost & Sullivan Enterprise Data – Service Provider of the Year

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Monday, September 12, 2011 — (Business Wire India) — Frost & Sullivan named Tata Communications Enterprise Data – Service Provider of the Year for the year 2010.

Tata Communications was the market leader in the enterprise data space with a share of 19.1 percent in an INR 6554.3 Crore market in 2010. It offers a wide variety of products including IPLC, DLC, MPLS, Internet, and Ethernet, and is a leading player in the large enterprise space. It also has a well-diversified customer base across all major verticals and thrives on innovations to create industry specific solutions for Indian enterprises.

Sumeet Walia, Senior VP & Head – Global Enterprise Solutions (India) stated, “The award recognizes our continuing commitment in delivering business enabling solutions and strengthening our capabilities by building one of the largest international networks across the globe. We have also been the pioneer in bringing next generation, innovative solutions to our customers. We are very proud to have received this accolade.”

Data connectivity has become ubiquitous to various day-to-day business activities of an enterprise. Price decline across various product segments in the last two years has made data services more affordable and has resulted in increased adoption by small and medium businesses. IP-based products like MPLS and Ethernet, which are scalable and cost efficient, are now replacing traditional point-to-point DLC and IPLC links. A wider network reach, lower downtimes, consistent bandwidth, low price and breadth of product offerings are some of the key parameters enterprises look at when choosing a data service provider.

While presenting the award, Anand Rangachary, Managing Director, Frost & Sullivan, Middle East, North Africa and South Asia stated, “Tata Communications has one of the largest international networks across the globe, and is a pioneer in the deployment of next generation Ethernet networks in several countries. By partnering with peer Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) and System Integrators (SIs), it offers a one-stop solution to meet the end-to-end data connectivity requirements of an Indian enterprise customer.”

The recipient of the award was adjudged based on a variety of parameters like revenues, growth, market share, product diversity, vertical and horizontal diversity which involved in-depth primary interviews of various industry participants and secondary research conducted by Frost & Sullivan analysts. The data was then presented to an elite panel of jury members comprising some of the most prominent CIOs/CTOs from the industry to incorporate the end-user perspective. Frost & Sullivan presented the award to the company that received the number one industry rank.
