May 04, 2011 (LBO) – TATA Communications’ Sri Lanka unit has commissioned its second international gateway in Sri Lanka improving reliability and providing back-up services to clients. œThis will enable our customers to offer higher uptime and better service levels to their end customers, thereby becoming more competitive in the international business environment, said V Ravi Sankar, chief executive of TATA Communications Lanka.
The second international gateway is at the Orion City, an emerging information technology park with a total planned investment of 70 million rupees, a statement said.
The new facility will further strengthen the reliability and stability of its services to both operators and enterprise customers, it said.
œIn the last seven years we have grown substantially. We thought it fit to have greater redundancy for the existing primary (gateway) and to provide an independent back-haul, for extending reliable and stable services, said Ravi Sankar.
Enterprise solutions, as well as wholesale voice solutions and carrier services, which are currently routed through the primary gateway, shall be offered from the new gateway.
