Reliance Communications (RCOM) and its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) launched a software-defined wide area network (SD WAN) product.

Named as Cloud X WAN, it is the first “Make in India” Cloud-centric network platform and the latest addition to Cloud X portfolio.

Reliance believes this platform will help enterprises to overcome many of the networking challenges. The new offering targets enterprises operating in multiple locations.

“In today’s market, it is evident that SD WAN is rapidly gaining momentum as it offers an innovative way to adapt traditional WANs to Cloud services,” said Bill Barney, CEO, RCOM (Enterprise) and GCX.

“Cloud X WAN, was developed to address the market, offering an affordable solution which embraces flexibility, scalability and enhanced security,” Barney added.

RCOM/GCX’s Cloud X WAN will provide cloud-based managed services globally across the company’s proprietary CLOUD X platform.

Through Cloud X WAN, enterprises will be able to subscribe to network services on a “pay as you go” basis meaning their network infrastructure can be as agile as the Cloud services it connects into.
