Tata Comms offers Wifi 6 and SD-WAN in extended Cisco partnership
Tata Communications is to offer enterprise customers cloud-managed Wifi services based on Wifi 6 technology and software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) services.
The company says its move will “empower enterprises with simple and easy to deploy, manage, and analyse IT infrastructure for delivering anywhere, anytime access”.
Genius Wong (pictured), CTO of Tata Communications, said: “We are happy to further enhance our offerings to enable enterprises as they manage the growing demand of their business transformation in the new paradigm.”
Tata Communications said that it will use Meraki technology, now part of Cisco Systems since an acquisition in 2012.
Cisco and Tata Communications have been working together for some time, but they said this latest agreement was an extension of the relationship.
Jason Gallo, VP for global partner sales at Cisco, said: “Meraki’s award-winning cloud architecture and ease of management, combined with Tata Communications’ managed services capabilities and reach, will help create new services with more network visibility and remote troubleshooting for deployments of any size.”
Wong noted: “Our recent Leading in a Digital-First World report, based on a global survey of enterprises, reveals 91% businesses recognise they are not able to provide high-quality digital experiences for their stakeholders. We believe the converging LAN and WAN protocols with better wireless and software-defined technologies is imperative for enterprises’ digital transformation journeys.”
