The new PoP offers MPLS, Ethernet, IP and International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC) services, connecting through Tata Communications' global network to over 600 cities in 50 countries and onwards to customers in over 200 countries. Tata Communications also owns and operates one of the world's largest private sub-sea cable networks.
