Network-as-a-Service allows us to access to network infrastructure directly and securely. NaaS makes it possible to deploy custom routing protocols.

NaaS uses virtualized network infrastructure to provide network services to the customer. It is the responsibility of NaaS provider to maintain and manage the network resources. Having a provider working for a customer decreases the workload of the customer. Moreover, NaaS offers network as a utility. NaaS is also based on pay-per-use model.

How NaaS is delivered?

To use NaaS model, the customer is required to logon to the web portal, where he can get online API. Here, the customer can customize the route.

In turn, customer has to pay for the capacity used. It is also possible to turn off the capacity at any time.

Mobile NaaS

Mobile NaaS offers more efficient and flexible control over mobile devices. It uses virtualization to simplify the architecture thereby creating more efficient processes.
