MTN Business Launches Microsoft-Enabled Pan-African Cloud Solution

MTN Business has launched a pan-African cloud platform that offers customers a true hybrid cloud solution serviced from MTN's data centres. The platform is powered by Microsoft's technology and is built on MTN's Global MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network which has 23 points of presence across the globe. This will ensure an enhanced customer experience due to lower latency and better response times. In line with the characteristics of cloud, MTN's customers will be provided with a self-service management portal with a consistent look and feel as Microsoft Azure, one of the best public cloud providers. The platform runs off enterprise-grade infrastructure, providing clients with flexibility and increasing their agility. This offering will provide corporates and the public sector with a platform to build and run mission critical applications for their end users, as well as develop and host new applications for their own customers. In addition, customers can use the platform as a disaster recovery site to comply with their own business continuity requirements. The decision to launch MTN Business Cloud platform follows the unveiling of Africa's first Pan African Internet of Things (IoT) platform, which lays the foundations for the introduction of a global Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sim card which is expected to give customers the same rate for M2M activity across MTN's footprint in Africa. MTN will offer Microsoft Express Route at the end of the third quarter of 2015. This will leverage MTN's Global MPLS network, enabling the company to offer solutions based on both MTN and Microsoft's Cloud platforms which will eliminate the need to use the Internet.
