Tata Communications has launched the latest addition to its IZO cloud enablement platform – IZO SDWAN. By enabling the instant deployment of branch office networks anywhere in the world, the new service helps organisations to expand and introduce new products and services faster, and adapt to rapidly changing market conditions.

Essilor, a leader in ophthalmic optics is one of the beta customers of IZO SDWAN. The company is using the new service to facilitate its expansion into new geographies. Marc Tanguy, director, IT technology services in Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, Russia and Africa, Essilor, said: “Given the crucial role that different cloud applications play in our business globally, the agility, flexibility and reliability of our network is paramount”. “A next-generation, software-defined hybrid network will enable us to connect new locations in an instant, making us more agile, and empowering us to improve the lives of many more people through improved access to quality vision care products. We are happy with the proof of concept and look to a new dimension of digital transformation with IZO SDWAN.”

“A new kind of platform economy is emerging, paving the way for innovative co-created services and business models that transform entire industries,” said Genius Wong, president, global network services, cloud and data centre services at Tata Communications. “But the management of a multitude of applications, clouds and connections which power the platform economy can be hugely challenging for organisations. Our IZO cloud enablement platform and its latest addition, IZO SDWAN, harness our unparalleled global reach and our partnerships to tackle these challenges and enable organisations to unleash the growth potential that new markets, geographies and business models bring through a scalable, borderless and easy-to-manage network.”

Joel Stradling, research director, Current Analysis said: “The expansion of Tata Communications’ IZO portfolio with an SDWAN service strengthens the company’s offering with new capabilities that allow enterprises to take advantage of greater service agility and automated provisioning. Tata Communications’ IZO SDWAN proposal is wide, addressing a sliding scale of business requirements, and telling a compelling story built around the company’s global network footprint.”

Tata Communications has developed multiple variants of IZO SDWAN to suit customers’ different requirements. These variants consist of its own patent-pending technology, and one that builds on technology supplied by Versa Networks.

Tata Communications is deploying 20 new cloud gateways for IZO SDWAN, with several more in the pipeline
