Connectivity Is Key to Delivering Better Outcomes
Today, it is unacceptable for an organization to have extended Internet connectivity or phone system outages. As more functionality continues to move to the network, there can be severe financial impacts associated with an outage. IT organizations must provide fast and responsive connectivity, so people can get their work done quickly and efficiently. Most organizations realize they cannot afford to be down for any length of time.
The Heart of the Network
Connectivity is at the center of networks and communication. And today, it comes in all shapes and sizes to fit an organization’s needs. Bandwidth, connectivity, and redundancy are now available as a cloud service, and inexpensive enough for even the smallest of businesses. There are plenty of choices out there for bandwidth, too. Solutions range from small wireless connections, T1s, and cable Internet, all the way up to the GigE and 10 GigE fiber to serve the needs of a global enterprise.
Lower Costs and Increase Network Performance
In the past, organizations needed three separate physical circuits for voice, Internet, and office-to-office connectivity. But with connectivity as a cloud service, networks are now converged. Today, organizations can access all three applications on one physical circuit. And they can typically add redundancy and bandwidth at lower cost too, while still increasing network performance. Moreover, connectivity as a service lets organizations shift their CAPEX spend to OPEX spends to stretch their budget further. Our Cloud Practice works closely with our Networking Practice and Software Practice to discern, design, and deliver your connectivity. Once your solution is deployed, our Networking Practice can work with you to review your new fiber channel connectivity, and help you improve your quality of service and internal network infrastructure to further optimize your connectivity solution.
