Finland: Tata Communications to Deliver WAN Through Subsea Cable Ring

Tata Communications, a leading provider of The New World of Communications, today announces that it has been chosen by Cargotec, the world’s leading provider of cargo handling solutions for ships, ports, terminals and local distribution, to deliver Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity to over 150 Cargotec sites globally through Tata Communications’ round-the-worldfibre optic cable network – the world’s only wholly-owned subsea cable ring.

Cargotec’s operations in over 50 countries across Europe, Asia, Middle East, Americas and Africa will benefit from increased capacity, speed, resilience and enhanced communications capabilities thanks to a fully managed, end-to-end Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network. This will enable the company to improve productivity and operational efficiency worldwide by streamlining its supply chain.

Cargotec chose Tata Communications for its comprehensive round-the-world network, which allows Cargotec to go from having multiple suppliers for its global WAN connectivity to just one. Not only does this reduce the chances of network failure, but it also delivers an always-on, cost-effective solution to cater for both Cargotec’s main offices and smaller sites, regardless of their location. Cargotec will now be able to offer a uniform service to its offices across more than 50 emerging and established markets, further enhancing global operational efficiency. It will also allow Cargotec to extend its network wherever the business grows.

 Soili Mäkinen, Chief Information Officer, Cargotec, says, “Cargotec improves the efficiency of cargo flows by offering handling systems and related services for the loading and unloading of goods on land, in port and at sea. As a truly global organisation, we need our network supplier to have the infrastructure and the resources we need in all markets and geographies, which is why we chose Tata Communications.”

 James Walker, Vice President, Managed Network Services, says, “The extent of a company’s global reach and operational efficiency, especially in emerging markets, is largely dependent on the connectivity available to them in those regions. With investments in infrastructure around the globe bringing us closer than ever to a truly connected world, companies should expect the same level of service and connectivity the world over. We look forward to working with Cargotec over the coming years to unlock further operational efficiencies throughout their network.”

Tata Communications recently completed theworld’s first wholly-owned round-the-world fibre optic cable network,bringing increased capacity, resilience and enhanced communications links to both developed and emerging markets. Tata Communications owns and operates the world’s largest subsea cable network, which, in combination with its other investments and commercial arrangements, has the ability to provide services to countries representing 99.7 per cent of the world’s GDP.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
