NTT has announced significant enhancements to its Managed Campus Networks service, a portfolio of consulting, technical and managed services designed to provide an integrated campus network in demanding head office, branch and manufacturing environments.
The new platform is designed to provide a direct path for network transformation and enables organisations to access the latest cloud-based and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled operations tools and critical connectivity services.
These enhancements deliver an improved client experience through automation and efficiencies, access to globally available skilled network experts, and operational processes certified against industry best practice, NTT states.
It all combines to deliver a better client experience when consuming managed services, meaning network health is improved and is more available to support client business requirements and ambitions.
The company's recent ‘2021 Global Workplace Report' revealed more than two-thirds of C-suite executives believe connected workplace technologies are very important to the organisation's future workplace strategy.
Senior executive VP of managed network and collaboration services for NTT, Sunil Kishore says, “It's fundamentally important to have a modernised network services foundation that supports outcomes delivered by a hybrid workplace.
"The pace of modern business needs robust communication, collaboration and access to business services all facilitated and enabled by the network.
NTT's Managed Campus Networks solution is designed to complement NTT's Managed SD-WAN and Managed Private 5G offerings by accelerating technology and operations transformation through automation, AIOps enabled platforms and analytics. These offerings aim to help to deliver the best digital experience for employees, customers and devices connecting to the campus network.
NTT executive VP enterprise network services Amit Dhingra says, “In today's demanding work environments, we know organisations require a one-stop shop for their network services."
He continues, "With NTT's Managed Campus Networks services, we leverage the innovative digital capabilities of our service platform and experienced technical skills to provide enterprises with faster time to incident response, improved network agility, and deeper insights into network operations through our global service delivery, and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) aligned processes and certification.
NTT's Managed Campus Networks service offering is underpinned by NTT's network infrastructure assets, including a tier-1 network backbone spanning five continents, SD-WAN services in 190 countries, and cloud-based NFV services in 75+ global Local Cloud Centers.
The company's secure by design approach delivers security embedded and integrated as part of the network function which reduces risk and enables office-bound employees to safely return, by providing location-based services with deep analytics for business insights, the company states.
Networking continues to evolve at pace, and modern campus network infrastructures are composed of seamless wired, wireless, and cellular connectivity that need to perform to deliver modern business expectations.
