Tata further strengthens IZ Internet WAN for global enterprises

08 June 2022

Digital ecosystem enabler Tata Communications has bolstered variants of its IZO Internet WAN for enterprises in the UK and Ireland, addressing a business environment that is increasingly entrusting priority business traffic to internet connections.

IZO Internet WAN first launched in 2014 and Tata claims it to be the world’s first predictable and dependable internet. The introduction of IZO Internet WAN suited for enterprises is designed to provide high-quality internet services and access to more than 150 geographies, allowing enterprises to have what is described as simple and agile management over their global and regional networks.

It is also claimed to enable what Tata said will be “seamless” data transfer from branch offices to datacentres, from branch offices to clouds, and across multiple clouds for enterprises.

Tata added that the service is suited to enterprises introducing cloud services to their existing IT and networking architecture as well as for businesses keen to cost-effectively extend their global reach to new markets. Key target industries for which Tata sees the service as particularly suited include manufacturing, IT, ITeS, retail and BFSI.

“We closely listened to our global enterprise customers, and for them, guaranteed uptime is business-critical,” said Song Toh, vice-president of global network services at Tata Communications. “Hence, our objective has always been to deliver highly available quality internet.

Tata quoted Gartner research, which shows that growing cloud deployments of business-critical applications will drive 30% of global enterprises to use enhanced internet services by 2023, up from less than 1% in 2020.

The new variants have also released for enterprises across North America and Asia-Pacific markets.
