Why should companies start investing in NaaS?
As companies are moving to a flexible office model, the number of users keeps varying each day. Considering this, organisations are shifting to Pay per use subscription models resulting in a rapid rise in NaaS services. NaaS brings with its networks, operations, and business architecture structured with more agility, open-based standards, and affordability.

Thus, reiterating the benefits of investing in NaaS. In addition to its aforementioned benefits, NaaS also gives an opportunity for organizations to focus on work without being bogged down with IT issues. It ensures a high level of security for organizations as it implements best IT security practices while recommending best-in-class hardware and software platforms that are tailored as per need.
Is NaaS more cost-effective for organizations?
Yes, NaaS is a cost-effective solution for an organization as it enables flexibility in the number of users for an organization through the Pay Per Use model. It gives organizations an opportunity to purchase and maintain network services instead of building their own. With the option to increase or decrease capacity, NaaS offers granular control over the cost. It also has a lower cost structure as it operates in the opex model that offers a greater degree of operational automation with better capabilities to architect and creates new services.
