Tata Communications has secured a Type B telecom license in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
The Type B license enables Tata Communications to provide Internet Service Provider (ISP) and related telecom services to enterprises and end-customers in a defined capacity in KSA. This will enable the company to make the shift from offering services as a foreign carrier in the Middle East to a local licensed service provider.
Tata Communications will become a carrier-neutral service provider to the OTTs, large enterprises and MNCs in the region. The company will be able to offer network transformation services in KSA and address internet, network security, private cloud and SDWAN requirements across the region.
“By securing this telecom license in KSA, we will be able to bring carrier-neutral services like internet connectivity, public/private cloud, cyber security, borderless mobility and more such services,” Vaneet Mehta, region head, Middle East, Central Asia & Africa, Tata Communications, said.
