Chennai, July 15 (ANI/Business Wire India): Sify Technologies Limited announced today the launch of Managed MPLS Service and Managed Internet Service as part of the Cisco Managed Services Channel Program (MSCP).

This service is the first of a series of Managed Services that Sify Technologies plans to launch over the next two years.

The Managed MPLS Service will provide world-class solutions with end-to-end service assurance to enterprises for their business critical networks.

The services are a part of Sify's strategy to migrate from TDM to IP based network services and introduce a full suite of Managed Services for Indian enterprises.

"As an industry leader, Sify has always set new benchmarks in communication service offerings and delivery for our customers. Our aim is to move beyond network management to offer and provide converged application services on business critical networks as an end to end managed services provider for Indian enterprises. The Cisco Tier 1 certification is a step in that direction, for it reinforces our world class MPLS network and service offerings capabilities to our customers. It also enables us to provide a host of new industry defining managed service offerings that will help our customers transform their businesses," said PJ Nath, Executive President, Enterprise Services, Sify Technologies Ltd.

Nath added, "Our customers will now have access to world class services using the latest technologies on a leasing model, on an OPEX model as opposed to investing in CAPEX, offering competitive advantage at low risk. They will be able to manage their internal IT resources and investments better and can focus on IT strategy and not have to invest in IT integration."

Recognizing Sify's achievement, Rajesh Chainani, Operations Director of service provider for Cisco India and SAARC said, "We would like to congratulate Sify on achieving the Tier 1 certification for Cisco's MSCP program. By providing world class services and globally consistent terms they have continually pioneered managed infrastructure services. We are confident that Sify will be able to extend the benefits of this program to their enterprise customers while delivering a quality managed service experience."

The launch of these services follows the Tier 1 MSCP certification for Sify Technologies from Cisco for their network and service capabilities. The certification places it in a league of select global operators that are endorsed for carrier-class MPLS networks and enterprise-class MPLS service capabilities.

The Cisco Tier 1 MSCP certification is based on rigorous third party audit that covers various aspects of the MPLS Service, including network architecture, network engineering capabilities, the security on network and service providing capabilities and processes.

Over the next two years, Sify will start offering a wide range of managed IP based services in a phased manner. These services will enable enterprises to outsource some of their most important IP communication services with complete investment protection and scalability. (ANI)
