The Cloudification of Networking

With changing user behavior and new digital business models, it’s an exciting time to rethink your WAN strategy. Our industry is innovating rapidly and enhanced functionality based on cloud and software-defined networking principles are unleashing the full potential of advanced optical fiber infrastructure. Furthermore, network automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are prominent technologies that are driving greater efficiency and agility in traditional network operations. Our superior SD-WAN service delivers these benefits across our global backbone, allowing enterprises to build an underlay directly on the Internet backbone itself.

Carrier-Grade for Enterprises
Managing explosive data traffic volumes within an always-on operational environment requires a network with high-availability, scalability and performance - together with managed QoS and comprehensive redundancy. Most enterprise-grade networks can’t deliver this. As an industry-leading international carrier, our services adhere to stringent industry standards and our network is engineered to consistently deliver mission-critical connectivity. Our core networking services, Smart IPVPN, Ethernet and Wavelengths are ideal for resilient and dependable connections that enterprises can trust for their corporate Intranet environments or to connect data centers and critical sites.

Becoming a digital enterprise requires extensive software development and easy access to leading-edge tools and technologies, as well as a stable environment for continuous integration and deployment. This requires a scalable, reliable and well-connected network underlay. Our #1 ranked Internet backbone serves the world’s largest operators, cloud and content providers, as well as enterprises that rely on business-critical connectivity.
