Bharti Airtel has acquired a minority stake in cloud-based networking solutions provider Cnergee Technologies under the Airtel Startup Accelerator Program.
Navi Mumbai based Cnergee specializes in integrated networking solutions over cloud for businesses of all sizes. Cnergee has developed a range of 5G ready software tools for Network as a Service (NaaS) that can be deployed to enable zero touch service provisioning, central remote monitoring, and management of all connected devices with a host of real time analytics.
The stake acquisition will enable Airtel to sharpen its NaaS proposition for Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) who are looking to accelerate their shift to cloud-based applications.
“Airtel is on a mission to accelerate the digital transformation journeys of enterprises through our NaaS platform,” Ajay Chitkara, Director and CEO – Airtel Business said.
