"Despite operator consolidation headwinds, our traditional services business is steady. As we grow scale, we are confident of an upward momentum in our revenue growth and profit trajectory in coming quarters," Pratibha Advani, CFO, Tata Communications said.

The company's 'growth services' comprise managed hosting, managed security services, broadcast, video streaming, and mobile new services, among others.

Vinod Kumar, managing director and group chief executive officer of Tata Communications, said the strategy adopted by the company is steering it on the right course towards its financial goals.

Data business saw strong all-round growth, with revenue growing 14.1 percent y-o-y. The company said revenue from 'growth services' witnessed "solid momentum", increasing 13.2 percent over the year-ago period.

"Traditional services stabilised with revenue growth of 4.2 percent quarter-on-quarter. Operator consolidation in India has affected this portfolio. While the revenue impact is largely over, we are still affected by higher access and co-location cost," the statement said.
