Ed Mulligan, VP of carrier operations at Vonage said Tata’s extensive reach, and the quality of its customer service provided the company with the confidence to enter into the agreement. “They understand the needs of next-generation and OTT providers and we look forward to our collective success.”

Tata provides a global Tier 1 backbone with over 400 PoPs and carriers over one billion voice minutes per week, with over 30 voice strategic sourcing partnerships.
