Telecommunications services provider Bharti Airtel and Cisco announced a partnership to offer advanced networking and connectivity solutions to enterprise and Small and Medium Businesses (SMB) customers in India.
Under the collaboration, Airtel will offer Managed Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) services in collaboration with the US-based technology conglomerate.
“Airtel is well positioned to offer next-gen digitisation solutions to enterprise customers in India and meet the quality of service expectations. We are excited to partner with Airtel. This highlights Airtel’s commitment to offering a flexible and reliable digitisation and collaboration solutions to customers,” Sameer Garde, President, Cisco India and Saarc, said in a statement.
Built on the Cisco-Viptela platform, Airtel’s Managed SD-WAN service would provide real-time analytics and in-built security. This solution will have a centralised policy and a management controller that will provide customers with a clear view of data flows across their networks and enable them to optimise data traffic.
“Digital India has opened up a huge residual opportunity to help businesses in their digital transformation journey and achieve the next level of growth,” Ajay Chitkara, CEO-Airtel Business said.
