NOVEMBER 4, 2008 -- Tata Communications (search for Tata Communications) has expanded its global MPLS services into the Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand to provide "rest of the world" connectivity to the customers conducting business in these markets.

The MPLS expansion to these destinations will add to Tata Communications' existing points of presence (which now number more than 120) within India and its network presence in China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, and Sri Lanka as well as the company's wide global network of international PoPs, strategic alliances and IPSec functionality.

Tata Communications says it can now offer customers access to a major network of owned cables, ensuring full scalability, redundancy, and vast global reach to the Middle East, Europe, Americas and soon to Latin America. Tata Communications MPLS reach spans over 65 countries. With Extended Access Service, a service that includes broadband access and IPSec integration, this global reach expands to over 150 countries.

Other significant initiatives in the Asia region include the construction of the TGN-Intra Asia cable system, which offers a design that avoids earthquake zones around Taiwan. This cable system is provisioned to create a direct link from Singapore to Japan and Hong Kong and provide inroads to new emerging markets such as Vietnam and the Philippines.
