Tata Communications and Cisco Systems expand global strategic partnership

Cisco Systems, the world leader in Internet-enabling technology, announced today the expansion of its two-decade-old strategic global collaboration with Tata Communications, a global enabler of the digital ecosystem. According to this new arrangement, Tata Communications and Cisco Meraki will give enterprise customers easy-to-use IT infrastructure that can be deployed, managed, and analysed from anywhere at any time.

A world-class suite of next-generation cloud-managed Wi-Fi services built on the most recent Wi-Fi 6 technology, as well as SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) services, is now available through Tata Communications' ecosystem thanks to Cisco Meraki. Combining our skills offers a smoother lifecycle management and a better user experience for the enterprises' stakeholders, as well as increased security, efficiency, and agility.

"We recently published a report called Leading in a Digital-First World, which is based on a global study of organisations and indicates that 91% of them recognise they are unable to provide their stakeholders with high-quality digital experiences online. It is our opinion that enhanced wireless and software-defined LAN and WAN protocols are essential for the digital transformation journeys of businesses "Genius Wong, Tata Communications' Chief Technology Officer, echoed same sentiments. It is a pleasure for us to strengthen our products even further in order to help companies deal with the increasing need for their business transformation in a new paradigm."

"To make the most of a hybrid cloud environment, companies need more managed services as part of their migration. Tata Communications' managed services capabilities and reach, combined with Meraki's award-winning cloud architecture and ease of management, will help create new services with increased network visibility and remote troubleshooting for any size deployment "Vice President of Cisco Global Partner Sales, Jason W. Gallo, stated as such.

Due to Cisco Meraki's location-based analytics and Tata Communications' guest Wi-Fi authentication services, businesses in a variety of industries like retail, manufacturing, health care, and hospitality will be able to provide customised and better end-user experiences.

The collaboration between Tata Communications and Cisco Systems makes it possible to manage the enterprise network end-to-end through a single pane of glass, allowing for increased mobility and centralised control of the IT environment. The system is more scalable and offers greater flexibility to users because of the lower device footprint. As a result, companies will be in a better position to provide a superior customer experience to their whole stakeholder ecosystem.
