Mumbai – Verizon Business and Wipro have announced a global partnership for Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offering. This tie-up will help to push the network modernisation and cloud transformation journey for businesses.

Verizon Business backed Wipro’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution will include a range of pre-configured and tested service chains on a subscription-based consumption model, designed to drive network consumption infrastructure on demand.

The multi-year partnership will enable Wipro to transition customers from legacy cycles of deploying hardware, applications and services to an automated, self-healing, and highly secure network service environment.

“Many organisations want to get out of endless technology refresh cycles but they face the twin challenges of traditional hardware and fixed infrastructures,” said Massimo Peselli, SVP and Chief Revenue Officer, Global Enterprise and Public Sector for Verizon Business.

“Our partnership with Wipro will enable businesses to future-proof their network in a manner that is more flexible, agile and predictive, centered around their specific needs,” Peselli commented about Verizon Business and Wipro partnership.

A recent IDC survey of over 400 technology-buying decision-makers across the globe revealed that 69% of respondents are planning a network transformation investment in the next 12 months.

NaaS has increasingly begun challenging legacy commercial models that require large upfront capital costs by providing more flexible, subscription-based services that can more easily be modified as needs change.

The technology has accelerated the implementation of new digital technologies such as AI/ML, 5G, IoT, advanced robotics, blockchain, AR/VR, and voice assistance. 

“Our joint NaaS offering brings together two industry leaders to drive this unique value proposition that will help our customers keep pace with changing demands of the cloud and network infrastructure while achieving operational efficiencies and agility at scale,” commented Jo Debecker, Wipro’s SVP and Global Head of Cloud and Infrastructure Services.

Wipro manages over 500 network and data centre facilities across geographies and different industries.
