Tata Communications, the Official Connectivity Provider to Formula 1, has been selected by Formula One Management (FOM) to provide broadcast services for the GP2, GP3 and Porsche Supercup racing series. Under the terms of the contract, Tata will provide a fibre and satellite service to broadcasters from across the globe at the 12 race locations in 2015. The agreement will also enable broadcasters covering GP2, GP3 and Porsche Supercup races to use Tata’s Race Network Operations Centre (NOC), located in the Formula 1 Technical Centre.

Tata already provides MPLS, internet access and managed hosting and security, as well as Content Delivery Network (CDN) and co-location services for FOM. This global platform also delivers data and live broadcast quality video to FOM. The same platform also delivers a range of connectivity services to the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team and Chello DMC, which distributes to Dutch sports channel Sport1.
