India's top operator Bharti Airtel has launched a new Bandwidth and Demand platform for enterprise customers worldwide.
The new platform will be at 19 locations including Los Angeles, New York, London, Marseilles, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore globally, as well as Airtel’s data centers and landing stations in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai in India.
It will offer businesses the ability to quickly access, configure and monitor bandwidth requirements and provision additional bandwidth where and when they need it.
Customers will be able to opt for bandwidth on an hourly, daily or monthly basis depending on their needs.
The service will take advantage of Airtel's global network, which spans 250,000 route kilometers across 50 countries in five continents, and carriers 10Tbps of lit capacity.
Airtel recently further strengthened it backbone with the acquisition of the India leg of GBI’s India–Middle East–Europe subsea cable.
“In today’s fast paced market, agile products and services are imperative to drive greater operational efficiencies,” Airtel Business director and CEO Ajay Chitkara said.
“With Bandwidth-on-Demand we want to empower our businesses to be able to seamlessly opt for flexible network solutions that will not only help them manage their unpredictable bandwidth requirements but also accelerate the adoption of newer technologies and help them move faster in their cloud and digital journey.”
