Reliance Communications (RCOM) and its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) on Wednesday launched ‘Make in India’ Cloud X WAN. Cloud X WAN is a network platform designed to help overcome many of the challenges facing today’s global enterprise networks. “In today’s market, it is evident that SD WAN (software-defined wide area network) 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 will provide cloud-based managed services globally across the company’s proprietary CLOUD X platform; a leading edge Cloud ecosystem and multi-service orchestration platform implemented in key hubs along GCX’s Global subsea network infrastructure.

Reliance Communications had also launched content delivery network Fast Edge for faster delivery of web content to users.
Fast Edge puts content closer to India s 350 million plus eyeballs than any other content delivery platform with most cost-efficient access available in the market, company officials told reporters here. It is designed to take Digital India from promise to fruition, they added. Fast Edge comprises a content delivery network of content caches around the edge of Reliance s Indian network, connecting back to nine state-of-the-art Tier III+ data centers in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, RCOM Enterprise and GCX CEO Bill Barney said. The content caches, in turn, are seamlessly connected onward to our network of data centers situated in key hubs along Emerging Markets Corridor, all interconnected by our wholly owned global subsea fibre network, he said.
