Multi-Protocol Label Switching
MPLS enables you to connect your various sites to share voice and data efficiently and securely. It’s a resilient, high-performance solution.
SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network)
SD-WAN is a virtual WAN architecture and was developed for reliability and flexibility. It can combine multiple transport services like MPLS, broadband, LTE and/or private lines into a single, unbreakable path that securely connects users with applications. An SD-WAN solution can:
- Optimize the performance and availability of your applications
- Strengthen security
- Increase network agility
- Simplify network management
- Integrate multiple solutions
- Optimize SaaS
They’re exactly what the name implies—lines that no one outside your business can access. Most often, they’re used to create a private network serving multiple business locations, or to connect with a data center. This option gives you the greatest possible security for your sensitive information.
Private lines can be routed over coaxial, fiber optic and dark fiber lines, to name a few.
Dedicated Internet Access
It’s a solution that’s consistent, is always on, and gives you guaranteed bandwidth. The benefits of DIA include:
- A wide range of speeds, from 1.5Mbps to 100Gbps
- High-performance access
- A high level of redundancy
- Outstanding support, 24/7/365
Data Center / Colocation
Data centers, also known as “colocation”—offer some major advantages. For starters, you can choose to house your servers physically or virtually. Other highly attractive features include:
- Redundant carriers
- Backup power systems
- Cooling resources that protect your infrastructure
In short, a data center provides the ultimate physical space for your equipment. You retain control of your hardware, while being able to concentrate more on running your business.
There’s a major cost advantage. In-house data centers are expensive to operate, maintain and upgrade. Not only is there the cost for the physical space, electricity, bandwidth, and cooling, there’s also staffing cost. Redundancy can also be a costly and risky. Too much and you’ll blow your budget; too little, and you could end up out of business.
Colocation can reduce the time, costs, and risk associated with handling in-house server stacks by giving you the ability to manage your data on demand.
OTHER BENEFITS OF COLOCATION:
Scalability. Suppose you need more room for data storage? Or more network throughput to handle big data analytics or high-bandwidth applications? Our colocation providers have you covered. Colocation facilities are designed to grow with your business, offering scalable infrastructure and the capacity to handle on-demand bursts.
Security. To stay competitive, colo centers must continually provide the latest security. They’re always updating their physical and digital protection to meet their clients’ expectations.
Reliability. You have applications that simply can’t experience downtime. But factors beyond your control—like weather and IT events—put your infrastructure at risk. Colocation facilities provide redundant power supplies and network providers, helping ensure that your applications stay up, and making it easy to transfer and store high-value data sets from local stacks.
Cost. Perhaps the biggest advantage of colo centers is what you don’t have to buy. You don’t need to buy new servers. You don’t need to upgrade your network connections or deploy new security measures. And since multiple companies use the colocation facility, you don’t pay the full operating costs. You pay for what you use.
