Network as a Service (NaaS) is a game-changing advancement in connectivity, particularly for small to mid-sized businesses and large enterprises. NaaS offers your business a breadth of benefits, including lower costs, minimal resource waste, and flexible provisioning. Spectra NaaS introduces these capabilities to fast-growing companies across India.
Network as a Service (NaaS) can be defined as a reimagined business model where companies can easily deploy networks without having to re-architect their infrastructure or revisit existing contracts.
It offers a more efficient approach to IT and network management, significantly reducing your operating costs. Further, it brings down your network capex to near-zero as there is no need to invest in hardware infrastructure or in-house IT staff.
By leveraging NaaS, you can rapidly digitise your network infrastructure and drive seamless scalability at low costs, without compromising on network performance or speed.
NaaS is a 360-degree overhaul for businesses currently running on do-it-yourself network infrastructure, depending on hardware, software, and service capabilities from multiple vendors. It takes the concept of a managed network a step further, bringing shared ownership to your end-to-end network footprint. So, transitioning to NaaS can reduce complexity and make processes simpler in a variety of areas.
