    Some quotes by the officials at the launch of Global Content Delivery Network Service

    Vinod Kumar, Chief Operating Officer, Tata Communications,
    The launch of Tata Communications' CDN service is a major milestone in our strategic roadmap to offer unparalleled managed services globally. We chose to work with BitGravity because it has the best architecture and technology to deliver high quality content and video. Together, Tata Communications and BitGravity's capabilities are a formidable force to deliver high quality content and video.
    Berge Avayzian, Chief Strategy Officer of Yankee Group,
    Video will soon become over 80% of the traffic on the Internet and content delivery will become strategic for every carrier. Carriers without a CDN strategy will inevitably become insignificant and will lose the economy of scale required to be competitive. This is a strategic endeavor for both Tata Communications and BitGravity and sends a bold message to the global CDN market.
    Perry Wu, CEO and co-founder of BitGravity,
    Global reach will be table stakes for content delivery and we are excited to receive funding and support from a strong strategic investor like Tata Communications that will enable us to effectively integrate our CDN architecture with their worldwide backbone and provide an unmatched user experience. Tata Communications' extensive relationships within and outside of the communications industry will accelerate the deployment and penetration of our innovative platform.
    Genius Wong, Tata Communications’ Senior Vice President of Global IP and VPN Services,
    Two essential ingredients of a superior CDN service include a strong IP network providing higher performance, and an efficient, scalable file distribution technology. The design of Tata Communications' CDN service has taken into account these key factors to come up with the industry’s highest performance and reliable IPv4 and IPv6 CDN service.
