Tata Communications it has extended its Ethernet service portfolio into China, with immediate availability. Tata will provide Ethernet services to global enterprises and carriers wanting to connect China with major global business centres worldwide, and builds on its existing MPLS and IPLC capabilities in the country.

Through an alliance and network interoperability with Beijing-based value-added telecoms services and integrated IT solutions provider China Enterprise Communications (CEC), Tata now offers the reliability, security, flexibility, and manageability of its Dedicated Ethernet and Priority Ethernet line of services into the China market.

The service will provide global point-to-point, point-to-multi-point, and multi-point Ethernet coverage to China's business centres of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, with the option of either PoP-to-PoP or end-to-end service guarantees.

James Walker, Tata's VP for global VPN services, sees the service's launch as a milestone. "With the extension of coverage into China, Tata Communications is no longer just the leader in global Ethernet services, we ace the competition in Asia Pacific too. China is the world's fastest growing trading nation and combined with our deep coverage in India, Tata Communications is providing Ethernet coverage into two of the most dynamic economies in the world and onwards to all major business locations in 31 countries. We are pleased that our suite of advanced connectivity solutions will play a pivotal role in the continued growth of China and India," said Walker.

Sun Yinghong, China Enterprise Communication's chief operating officer, said, "This partnership allows us to build on our extensive network reach to link even more Chinese MNCs to the world through superior Ethernet services. Innovative solutions go further with meaningful alliances, and we have greatly benefited from our collaboration with Tata Communications."

"Enterprises are increasingly adopting Ethernet services to manage their burgeoning bandwidth requirements in a cost effective manner," said Jayesh Easwaramony, director, ICT Consulting and head of Telecoms Research Asia Pacific. "Enterprises and service providers looking to connect locations across critical market hubs, like China, now have a high bandwidth Ethernet option from a service provider that combines global reach and emerging markets expertise."
