The Microsoft Express Route service will leverage on MTN's Global MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) network, which connects major cities across Africa and the rest of the world, to provide customers with a consistent experience when utilising applications that are delivered from Microsoft Azure and Office 365. Customers can leverage on ExpressRoute as a value added service to enable a secure, SLA-backed network connection to the Microsoft Azure Public Cloud and Office 365. Express Route will also give customers connectivity access to additional services on Microsoft Azure Public Cloud and Office 365.
What does it offer your enterprise?
- The ExpressRoute offering comes on the back of the recent launch of MTN’s pan-African cloud platform that offers customers hybrid cloud solution services from MTN’s data centres
- ExpressRoute will allow our clients to experience a managed network service with the same reliability, manageability and security they would have when using a private network.
- Clients will benefit from better quality of service, and will be able to access services via the Cloud, as well as share data sets between the MTN Business Cloud and Microsoft Azure Public Cloud experiencing a true hybrid cloud.
- More reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies, and higher security can be experienced with express route as the connections do not go over the public Internet.
