AUGUST 1, 2008 -- Tata Communications (search for Tata) has introduced two new Ethernet services to extend the company's global WAN Ethernet Portfolio: Dedicated Point to Multipoint Ethernet and Dedicated Multipoint Ethernet. With these new services, Tata Communications offers three different service options across India and to major business centers in Asia, North America, Europe, Africa, and soon, the Middle East.

Dedicated point-to-multipoint Ethernet uses a hub-and-spoke network model for transmitting content between a central location, such as a corporate headquarters or data processing center, and satellite locations. The dedicated multipoint service allows customers to deploy any-to-any network topology to create a global Ethernet WAN for the free flow of information. Diverse global locations can communicate on a network that creates the feeling of a virtual business campus, Tata Communications says, with users around the world communicating as if they were in adjacent offices.

"These two new services further deepen our WAN Ethernet Service set, provide additional value to our customers, and provide high-quality services with features not found elsewhere in the market," said James Walker, vice president, global VPN services for Tata Communications. "Our new services combined with our global rollout of new Ethernet PoPs deliver on our commitment to provide the most flexible and complete set of Ethernet services to the widest range of global destinations."

The new services feature MAC address forwarding, completely private networks for each customer, and customer-premises to customer-premises SLAs. In addition, both Dedicated Point to Multipoint Ethernet and Dedicated Multipoint Ethernet are MEF 9 and MEF 14 certified. Tata Communications says it was the first provider to pass the more than 400 service tests required to achieve these certifications across its entire global network.
