Tata Communications Expands Offerings in Brazil

November 17, 2017

Tata Communications announced the expansion of its emerging markets connectivity to Brazil, utilizing its global network and Seabras-1 system to make the Latin American connections. Brazil holds a huge IT marketplace – the ninth biggest IT market worldwide and ranking number one in Latin America, according to IDC and the Brazilian Association of Software Companies (ABES).

Brazilian IT investments are expected to grow by 6.7 percent in 2017.  This expansion for Tata Communications is extremely strategic and beneficial for both the company and Brazil. Digital transformation will increase the digital communications reach for all of Latin America.

“Our expansion to Brazil is part of our commitment of continually building our capabilities and reach to meet our customers’ increasing data demands worldwide,” said Bob Laskey, ‎senior vice president and head of Americas at Tata Communications.

Brazil will now be able to speed up its digital transition with the adoption of Tata Communications offerings. Included in its global network are an entire range of connectivity options, cloud, security, mobility and collaboration services. Multinational organizations working out of Brazil have access to said services to aid in the digital transition.

“The powerful combination of Seabras-1, our global network, and our cloud enablement services, such as IZO Hybrid WAN and IZO SDWAN, means that we’re now better placed than ever to help businesses in Latin America and beyond to fulfill their growth ambitions,” added Laskey.

Additional expansion benefits are the Seabras-1 cable landing station in Wall, New Jersey, home to Tata Communications. This station allows a direct link from New York City to Sao Paulo, surpassing congestion in heavily populated metropolitan areas along the way. Seamless connections can also be made to London, Europe, Middle East, and Asia through Tata Communications network.

Tata Communications expansion to Brazil is a wise one and Brian Washburn, practice leader at Ovum, wholeheartedly agrees: “The addition of Seabras-1 to Tata Communications’ global network tightens the link between two of the Americas’ largest cities and the rest of the world.”
