The Microsoft Express Route will leverage MTN Global MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network, which connects major cities across Africa and the rest of the world, to provide customers with consistent experience when utilizing applications that are delivered from Microsoft Azure, and Office 365. Customers can leverage Express Route as a value added service to enable a secure, SLA backed network connection to Microsoft Azure Public Cloud and Office 365. Express Route will also provide customer connectivity to additional services on Microsoft Azure Public Cloud and Office 365.
What does it offer to your business?
- The Express Route offering comes on the back of the recent launch of MTN’s pan African cloud platform that offers customers hybrid cloud services from MTN’s data centres
- Express Route 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 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.
