Country’s first 4G Enterprise VPN solution on the most efficient LTE network offers secure connectivity to Indian businesses
Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ offers easy and quick connectivity for businesses—virtually anywhere in the country
With wireless last-mile access, ‘Branch Connect’ is a potential game-changer for enterprises on an expansion drive
Mumbai, 4 July 2017: Reliance Communications, India’s fully-integrated telecommunications service provider, today announced the launch of Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ – the country’s first 4G Enterprise Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution – designed to help businesses quickly extend their corporate network to sites virtually anywhere in the country. Launched by RCOM’s India Enterprise Business Services unit, Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ offers secure high-performance wireless connectivity in the last mile for enterprises to quickly connect their sites – be they branch offices, warehouses or partner offices, etc., – to the corporate private network.
Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ offers secure and high-performance enterprise-grade connectivity over RCOM’s Next-Gen Reliance 4G LTE network, providing an unmatched experience for businesses. The solution makes network expansion quick and easy for businesses across the country—from metropolitan areas to the hinterland, offering easy management and scalability of networks. The solution has been designed with security as the most critical product feature.
“We are delighted to unveil this innovative solution that makes enterprise-grade private connectivity ubiquitous in India,” said Bill Barney, Co-CEO, Reliance Communications, and Chief Executive Officer of Global Cloud Xchange. “India Inc. is on a steep growth curve. As enterprises extend into under-served urban areas and the hinterland, the need for reliable, fast and secure connectivity comes to the fore. Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ addresses these needs squarely and effectively.”
If an enterprise’s Hybrid/Private/Public Cloud site is already connected to Reliance MPLS VPN, all that each of the other sites would need to do to connect to the corporate network is a plug-and-play
Branch Connect Smart Router. The service is configured so that usage is restricted to business-relevant corporate applications, and is backed by enterprise-grade performance objectives, reporting, service support and features.
By making the extensive countrywide Reliance 4G LTE network available for enterprises, Reliance ‘Branch Connect’ makes it very easy for Enterprise CIOs to overcome the usual challenges of finding reliable connectivity for their sites. Combining the advantages of wireless last-mile access and secure private connectivity, the solution is a potential game-changer for enterprises, particularly those that are on an expansion drive.
