B2B telecom solutions provider Tata Communications has announced that it has secured a telecom license in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The “Type B” license would help the company expand its internet connectivity as well as SD-WAN services to large enterprises in the region, thereby increasing its presence in the Middle East.

This will also enable the telecom company to make the shift from a foreign carrier in the Middle East to a local licensed service provider.

“By securing this telecom license in KSA, we will be able to seamlessly bring carrier-neutral services like internet connectivity, public/private cloud, cybersecurity, borderless mobility, and more such services to the region. This will help simplify the digital experience for our customers and aid them in transforming their businesses in the new normal,” said Vaneet Mehta, Associate Vice President, Middle East, Central Asia & Africa, of Tata Communications.

According to the company, enterprises need to adapt their business models in favor of digital-first solutions in order to be successful in the current environment.

As per the latest inputs, the telecommunications company has been working tirelessly to deliver a seamless digital experience to end-customers.

It is pertinent to note that Tata Communications carries nearly 30% of the world’s internet routes and connects businesses to 60% of the world’s cloud giants. In addition, it also owns the world’s largest subsea fibre network that connects over 200 countries and territories.
