Tata Communications Transformation Services Limited (TCTS) 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 SESCOM cable system, which connects the African

continent to the rest of the world. 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. TCTS said this is an option

never available before.

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.

“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 VS Shridhar, COO, TCTS. According to Brian Herlihy, CEO, SEACOM before the

development of this cable system, most east and southern African nations relied

on small and costly satellite circuits to meet their international network
