virtual-network-abstract

Colt Technology Services has announced the expansion of its SDN-enabled On Demand portfolio by innovating how Ethernet connectivity services are provisioned to enterprise buildings. Designed to enable the digital transformation of today’s demanding businesses, Colt’s Ethernet on Demand service supports dynamic real-time ordering, provisioning and flexing of high bandwidth connectivity between locations connected to the Colt IQ Network.

Colt’s Ethernet on Demand service is the latest innovation available from the company’s On Demand Portfolio. It follows the launch of Colt’s DCNet On Demand in 2016.

Colt’s On Demand Portfolio, which allows enterprises to consume Ethernet connectivity services on the Colt IQ Network in real-time via an intelligent online customer portal, bypasses the legacy service delivery processes. It also gives customers full control and the ability to flex bandwidth requirements up and down using the portal. The on-demand flexibility also extends to pricing, giving customers the option to choose per-hour pricing plans, as well as more traditional fixed term contract durations.

“With the expansion of Colt’s On Demand portfolio, Colt is enabling the digital transformation of businesses looking to support their high bandwidth needs. Enterprises are now empowered with a self-service portal to take full and intelligent control over their networks,” said Rajiv Datta, CTO, Colt. “Enterprises with increasingly demanding network requirements can benefit from near real-time service provisioning and dynamic bandwidth flexing to cope with their immediate business needs. Colt has invested significantly in on demand connectivity infrastructure, leaving organisations free to concentrate on their core business whilst gaining visibility, agility and flexibility.”
