About Tata Teleservices

Tata Teleservices is a telecommunication service provider based in India. Tata Teleservices Limited is one of India's leading private telecom service providers, having a pan-India presence. The company offers integrated telecom solutions to its customers under the Tata Indicom brand, and uses the latest technology platform(s) for its wireless network. With a customer base of over 37 million, Tata Teleservices Limited, along with Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) Limited, covers over 320,000 towns and villages across all of India's 22 telecom circles. In November 2008, Tata Teleservices entered into an agreement with Japanese telecom major NTT DOCOMO, as part of which the Japanese company acquired a 26% stake in TTSL for USD 2.7 billion to create Tata DOCOMO mobile telephony services. The transaction marks a key step in the strategic evolution of Tata Teleservices, as it moves towards a pan-India dual network presence. The company also recently announced a unique reverse equity swap strategic agreement between its fully-owned telecom tower subsidiary, Wireless TT Info-Services Limited, and Quippo Telecom Infrastructure Limited-with the combined entity kicking off operations with 18,000 towers, thereby becoming the largest independent entity in this space in the country. Tata Teleservices' bouquet of telephony services includes mobile services, wireless desktop phones, public booth telephony and wireline services.

In June 2009, Tata Teleservices entered into GSM services after spectrum roadmap for CDMA was not available and the limited allocation of airwaves. With this, experts felt the entry of Tata Teleservices into the GSM space is by force than as a choice for the company.

In June 09, Ceragon Networks announced it received an oder for Ceragon's advanced SDH and IP FibeAir(R) solutions to support Tata Teleservices in expanding its GSM mobile network to seven new communication circles that cover a population of nearly 400 million.
