Why BitGravity Attracted Tata

The Silicon Valley startup’s “content-delivery network” will help speed media traffic on the Indian telecom’s digital highway

As one of the world’s largest telecommunications carriers, India’s Tata Communications already moves a massive share of voice and data across its global fiber-optic network. Now, the company is stepping up efforts to handle all that network traffic—particularly a fast-rising tide of bandwidth-hogging video data—more efficiently.

On Sept. 8, Tata’s telecom unit said it will begin offering a so-called content-delivery network, or CDN, developed by a small Silicon Valley startup called BitGravity. Tata is also making an $11.5 million investment in BitGravity.
