Tata Comm Maintains Internet Connectivity Despite Cable Cuts

Saturday, December 27, 2008: Tata Communications has said that it maintained Internet connectivity to its customers in India, Middle East, and South East Asia and restored normal connectivity to its customers in these regions on 20 December 2008, within a day of the triple cable cuts of 19 December.
Three major undersea cables (SMW3, SMW4, and FLAG) were damaged in the
Mediterranean, disrupting Internet and communication services in parts
of Asia, India and the Middle East. During this triple cable cut, the company's global Internet backbone maintained full connectivity
and remained completely operational.

Although there was induced latency in some routes, the activation of a diverted path towards North America and Europe via East Asia, Trans-Pacific and Trans-Atlantic routes enabled and contributed to the service continuity and minimal service interruption, said the company.

"Tata Communications' extensive global Internet backbone has diverse eastward and westward paths which enable us to maintain services when incidents like this one occur," said Radwan Moussalli, managing director, Middle East and North Africa, Tata Communications. "We are proud of our global operations and engineering team that worked round the clock to execute a speedy and successful recovery plan to ensure business continuity for our Internet customers."
