NEW YORK & MUMBAI, India -- February 5, 2013

Tata Communications  today announces that it is  extending its global business
video ecosystem with a new interconnection agreement with AT&T. The agreement
now enables even more face-to-face collaboration around the world, across each
respective network. With this latest in a series of interprovider agreements,
Tata Communications’ Global Meeting Exchange™ network provides connections to
most of today’s major providers of Telepresence services, offering customers
unprecedented reach for their business video networks.

“To help the telecoms industry meet the requirements of enterprises as the
growth of business video continues, there needs to be collaboration and
openness amongst service providers,” says Peter Quinlan, Vice President,
Integrated Business Video Services, Tata Communications. “The creation of an
open ecosystem in which service providers align and interconnect their
respective business video communities will allow enterprise customers to
receive not only the best service possible, but it will also give them
unprecedented reach to other Telepresence rooms around the world, enabling
them to embrace video as a daily business communication tool. The agreement
with AT&T is the latest step in our strategy to make business video a truly
global collaboration tool for enterprises, regardless of network, service
provider or location.”

Tata Communications’ strategy to create the world’s richest, connected and
open video ecosystem includes: business-to-business video services,
cloud-based services and flexible, modular, managed services; as well as one
of the world’s widest-reaching Telepresence networks via inter-provider
agreements and the largest public Telepresence room footprint. These offerings
culminate under the Global Meeting Alliance™, an open business video ecosystem
initiative spearheaded by Tata Communications, which provides participating 
enterprises and service providers with greater global reach, lower total cost
of ownership and a world-class user experience.

“AT&T is working closely with a number of service and technology providers in
the industry to enable more pervasive and global video collaboration
capabilities without borders,” said Alan Benway, Executive Director of AT&T
Business Solutions. “The interprovider agreement with Tata Communications is
another step in that effort, broadening access for AT&T Telepresence Solution
customers as they look to collaborate through even more endpoints globally.”

Video is a key driver of global internet traffic growth. Research firm Informa
Telecoms & Media^1 recently estimated that video accounts for 50% of annual
internet traffic growth. Two-way business video requires more bandwidth than
one-way broadcast video. As such, service providers’ networks are going to be
put under greater pressure to manage this increasing level of demand. Tata
Communications owns and operates the world’s only fibre optic sub-sea network
ring around the globe, enabling the company to firmly support the explosion in
network traffic generated by video.
