ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Jazz, Pakistan’s leading 4G operator and largest Internet and broadband service provider, has partnered with Network Cloud pioneer Alkira, Â®Inc. to deploy the company’s Cloud Networking as-a-Service (CNaaS) offer.
Alkira’s integration with Jazz’s cloud portfolio provides businesses with the ability to deploy a multi-cloud network in minutes, with the ability to enable and disable services as needed by the business.
The time, cost, and complexity of building networks in the cloud with end-to-end connectivity, security and visibility are major challenges holding back digital transformation.

Through Alkira, Jazz will deliver simpler, more complete and faster multicloud solutions that can help optimize performance, control costs, provide rapid cloud access and secure applications, environments and data. A pay-as-you-go model that provides a single platform to manage the services of different cloud providers without additional hardware requirements.
âIn this new normal, businesses rely on a mobile workforce and cloud-accessible applications. As these businesses undergo digital transformation, they require extreme agility and the best network security. In partnership with Alkira, we seek to reinvent the cloud experience by delivering a multicloud network with unified services, security, intent-based policy, visibility and governance. This platform seamlessly connects to corporate infrastructure, enabling a secure multi-cloud environment within minutes, giving businesses the agility they need, âsaid Syed Ali Naseer, Chief Commercial Officer of Jazz.
