MUMBAI, India -- Tata Communications Transformation Services Limited (TCTS), a leading provider of business transformation, telecom BPO and consultancy services, announced that they have launched NOC operations, subsequent to SEACOM commissioning the 1.28 Terabytes per second (Tb/s), 17,000-kilometre cable system. TCTS NOC has started managing the network administration, operations and maintenance functions of this SEACOM cable system which connects the African continent to the rest of the world.

Leveraging its parent company's (Tata Communications) expertise in the sub-sea domain, TCTS will help SEACOM enhance connectivity for businesses based out of Europe, Asia and India by providing them with cable and capacity options into Africa and vice versa; an option never available before.

SEACOM will ensure a robust fulfillment and assurance experience to its customers through TCTS' offshore global delivery centres, which provide cost-effective 24X7 service delivery to customers across the world.

The SEACOM cable system enables Tata Communications to provide fully integrated network services from South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya to its networks in Europe, Asia and India.

Besides high capacity international bandwidth, enterprises and carriers using SEACOM can enjoy delay-free voice and video services made possible by reduced Round Trip Delay (RTD).

"We are proud to be associated with the SEACOM cable project that will bring much needed connectivity into Africa. With our expertise in managing operations of submarine and terrestrial networks, we can bring process efficiencies to SEACOM and as a result transform the businesses and lives of the local people," said V S Shridhar, Chief Operating Officer of TCTS.
