Batelco and Tata Communications Sign Agreement to Expand the Reach of their Global Connectivity & Data Centre Solutions for Customers

Strategic Partnerships are Important Pillar of Batelco’s Global Expansion Plans 

Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital communications solutions provider and Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications™, have signed an agreement further strengthening their partnership to extend the reach of their global data centre, cloud and connectivity solutions to their customers. Batelco has chosen Tata Communications as a cloud partner to ensure high levels of flexibility and reliability for its customers through Tata Communications’ IZO™ Cloud Enablement Platform.

The agreement was signed by Batelco Chief Global Business Officer Adel Al-Daylami and Tata Communications’ Senior Vice President for Middle East, Central Asia and Africa Radwan Moussalli, on the side-lines of International Telecoms Week (ITW) which took place in Chicago, USA from May 14 to 17.

Speaking following the event, Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that forming strategic partnerships with world leading organisations such as Tata Communications is an important pillar of Batelco’s global expansion plans and crucial in supporting Batelco’s trusted and resilient networks. “Our global expansion strategy is designed to strengthen our global portfolio of services by ensuring the provision of reliable solutions both into and from Bahrain.” she said.

Mr. Al-Daylami said that Batelco was very pleased to build on its established partnership with Tata Communications and extend Batelco’s international reach and diversity. “The new agreement is also beneficial in supporting Tata Communications’ requirements for reliable connectivity in the Middle East region as part of the company’s IZO™ Internet WAN service.”

“Batelco is pleased to be the partner of choice for global players such as Tata Communications, empowering their global networks through the provision of reliable and resilient solution” added Mr. Al-Daylami.

Tata Communications’ game-changing IZO™ Cloud Enablement Platform empowers enterprises to connect and build their cloud, their way – be it private, public or hybrid. It is supported by Tata Communications’ leading global infrastructure. Today, over 25% of the world’s internet routes travel over the company’s network, which is the largest wholly-owned subsea cable network in the world.

The agreement allows Tata communications to extend its data centre footprint in locations like Bahrain, Jordon, among others enabled by Batelco. This allows Tata Communications’ customers to have a one stop, seamless solution for their network, cloud and colocation requirements.

Mr. Moussalli, said, “Our partnership with Batelco strengthens our commitment to providing the Middle East a gateway to international markets. Tata Communications’ pioneering IZO™ Cloud Enablement Platform, and in particular IZO™ Internet WAN, harnesses our partnerships, global network and cloud expertise to make the Internet fit for business and help Batelco’s customers accelerate their digital transformation. Batelco continues to be a trusted partner of choice for us as we work together to support enterprises in the region and globally on their digital transformation journey.”
