CP Gurnani, MD and CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, “Tech Mahindra’s partnership with Cisco is very effective and has converged on areas such as the DNA (Digital Network Architecture). Networks today across enterprises play a critical role but need modernisation to keep pace with the demands of today’s digital age.

Leveraging Cisco’s technology, we have deployed one of the largest software defined networks in our Hyderabad campus.”
