Hedera will transform how customers operate, through a wide range of applications and use cases, by taking advantage of distributed ledger technology and infrastructure. Tata Communications is at the forefront of technological change and digital transformation.
It is an honor and privilege for them to serve on the Hedera Governing Council, welcoming them into the group to help build what they believe will be the next generation of public internet infrastructure affecting nearly every industry as well as researching how public distributed ledgers can transform their businesses.
These companies recognize that they can enhance their customers’ experience and benefit the global digital economy as a whole by collaborating to accelerate the adoption of this technology.
TATA’s Participation in Governance
Ownership in Hedera has enabled them to shape the direction of network features, the codebase, and more in a way that supports the needs of our developer community and businesses (which include our internal teams). The group said that they were excited about learning about the transformational potential of Hedera’s network services, while taking part in discussions around important network and governance issues.
In addition to participating in the Hedera Governing Council as a whole, they are also involved in both the Product and Technology Committees which are responsible for determining the Hedera product roadmap and network development. Furthermore, they advise the Membership and Growth committees on recruitment of council members along with ensuring a healthy growth of the Hedera developer and application ecosystem.
Main Network Node Infrastructure for Tata Communications
Hedera’s Council requires them to host the first network node. They’ve chosen to host the Hedera node on their own infrastructure rather than on a public cloud, which ensures decentralization and allows flexibility in the management of the Hedera node.
It is hosted within a highly secure, Tier 1 West Coast data center connected to Tata’s global tier 1 IP backbone, which links the United States to other data centers in APAC, India, Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Tata Communications is providing its own 24×7 managed support for this node to meet the performance and availability requirements of the Hedera network.
Use Cases and Applications
Security appears to be an obvious area of focus for Tata Communications in exploring how they can use Hedera Hashgraph internally and with their customers. They believe HCS can be used to process high-speed enterprise workloads flawlessly, with verifiable timestamps and orders, and utilize the trust of a public network in this space.
They are thinking about new ways to leverage the power of Hedera Hashgraph, especially for the telecommunications industry. I’m sure there will be uses for Hedera Hashgraph in the telecommunications industry.
Overall, they expressed their excitement about becoming a part of the Hedera Hashgraph governing council. They’re eager to help reshape enterprise IT security in the not-too-distant future, with Hedera Hashgraph playing a major role.
