Network as a Service (NaaS)

What is NaaS?

NaaS stands for “Network as a Service.” It is a cloud computing model that delivers networking services over the internet. In the NaaS model, businesses can subscribe to and consume networking services on a pay-as-you-go basis, similar to other cloud-based services. NaaS provides a flexible and scalable approach to networking, allowing organisations to access and manage network resources without the need to invest heavily in physical infrastructure. This approach often includes services such as virtualised routers, switches, and other networking components, providing a more agile and cost-effective solution for meeting the networking needs of modern businesses.

What are the business benefits of NaaS?

NaaS offers numerous advantages for businesses, including cost efficiency through a subscription-based model, scalability to adapt to changing needs, rapid deployment and adjustment for flexibility, accessibility from anywhere with an internet connection, centralised management for simplified administration, built-in security features, enhanced reliability with redundant infrastructure, the ability to focus on core competencies by outsourcing networking functions, regular updates and upgrades handled by providers, and global reach for seamless connectivity across international operations.
