Tata Communications Transformation Services (TCTS), a partner of choice for the world’s leading Communication Service Providers (CSPs), and Zeetta Networks, a leading network slicing and splicing company, announced a global partnership agreement to facilitate early adoption of technologies like 5G and network slicing within the ICT space.
As a partner to Zeetta Networks, TCTS will install, maintain and support Zeetta Networks’ NetOS in telco and enterprise networks to enable use cases like Factory-as-a-Service, smart cities, smart venues, connected cars, gaming or security. TCTS will also provide System Integration services for Zeetta Networks' multi-tenant, multi-technology software platform.
As part of the agreement, TCTS will be a key go-to-market partner for Zeetta Networks to target new markets and grow the business by leveraging TCTS strong presence in the Telecom service provider market.
“We are happy to partner with Zeetta Networks at this important juncture as the telecom industry goes through digital transformation to drive more customized and differentiated service offerings. Our partnership with Zeetta Networks for network slicing will allow operators to build networks on demand and slice the networks based on specific requirements of autonomous cars, AR/VR & other use cases. While the service providers get ready for 5G networks, we have demonstrated slicing-as-a-service – which is ready now on 4G/Wi-Fi networks with experiential use cases of smart stadiums and pop up networks”, Madhusudhan Mysore, Executive Chairman & CEO, Tata Communications Transformation Services commented.
TCTS’ decade long experience in transforming, simplifying and managing global networks offers Zeetta Networks an edge in terms of market awareness, product knowledge, best practices, and multi-vendor domain skills that can enable Zeetta Networks to deliver real world success and value to customers.
Harkirit Singh, Global Head of Solutions, TCTS explained, “Network slicing will transform the way networks are consumed by humans and machines. Our partnership will enable service providers to launch new use cases and business models in high growth enterprise markets through differentiated connectivity-as-a- service enabling new revenues and lower total cost of ownership.”
With extensive global experience, Zeetta Networks has developed patented technologies that enable network owners the flexibility and freedom to manage their services – and budgets – more effectively. This not only supports and extends the Open Networking philosophy beyond data centers to core and access networks, but also towards a future where the whole ‘end-to-end’ network is as agile as it needs to be.
With such expertise, Zeetta Networks is on the one hand a natural partner of choice for TCTS in their ambition to drive the technologies of the future for its customers globally, on the other hand the partnership will enable Zeetta Networks to expand rapidly into new markets and explore business opportunities of mutual interest at a global scale and drive early adoption of new user-centric networks using cross-layer Network Slicing and Splicing.
