The corporate WAN is the foundation of any enterprise cloud-first or zero-infrastructure strategy. Continuing to use legacy hub and spoke architectures and private MPLS networks, all with complex configurations and management, can put your company at a competitive disadvantage. Even companies that are slower to adopt cloud technology should take a close look at a network refresh that incorporates SD-WAN technology to improve performance of any cloud-delivered service or SaaS application.
INTEGRATED VOICE AND DATA
Typically used for small or remote offices, integrated voice and data services deliver a cost-effective alternative to dedicated voice and data lines. Using logical separation of voice and data over a single circuit, this can be a good solution for a small business or a small office in a large enterprise.
As the momentum for enterprise voice and collaboration services migrating to cloud delivery models continues accelerating, many companies still have substantial investments in current PBX and phone systems that are on-site and managed internally. Now, SIP trunking is the gold standard for delivering critical voice services to legacy infrastructure in a centralized or distributed architecture. It’s also crucial for maintaining services for extended migrations to a more modern communication platform or for companies choosing to maintain a hybrid service delivery model.
BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS
Broadband internet access has been used sparingly in the enterprise space due to a lack of service-level agreements (SLAs) for performance and availability. However, with the adoption of SD-WAN, broadband and other lower-cost internet connectivity has become an important option to scale capacity and improve the performance of a dedicated internet link. We can help map out the most cost-effective way to take advantage of broadband’s cost benefits in an SD-WAN deployment, or simply to connect a location that does not require an SLA-backed dedicated circuit.
DEDICATED INTERNET ACCESS
Dedicated internet access is the generic term for high-quality connectivity to the public internet that carries a financially-backed performance and availability guarantee. As the terms “internet” and “cloud” become synonymous in our daily lives and in business, the one thing that enables them both is internet access. Plus, with a rapidly growing number of enterprises using SD-WAN, dedicated internet is the most flexible and cost-effective way to connect. Let us help define your requirements and source the most effective blend of dedicated internet access from the most reliable ISPs.
