Connect your network to your cloud services

Maximise the performance of the cloud services your organisation depends on.

Overview

The move to the cloud has happened, and your organisation may already be relying on it for things such as Microsoft services, Amazon storage and more.

You need a reliable, secure and high performance connection, with adequate bandwidth and minimal downtime. Because if something goes wrong, then it’s a major problem that costs money – sometimes a lot of it. 

So, what if you could embrace the cloud using an old network approach, and without having to accept reduced performance? 

You could connect to the cloud straight from your private network, with guaranteed bandwidth, reliable security, and SLAs that make sure any problems you experience are fixed in minutes or hours, not days. 

Cloud and accelerations services are now cloud-based to make sure you can accelerate or secure from your cloud provider to your site. And new services can help you offload traffic locally or regionally via secure gateways to reduce the demand on your network.

The growth in cloud-based applications is one of the most significant changes in recent times.

This has been driven by the move to cloud-based services, such as Microsoft O365 and Salesforce and the availability of low cost storage services, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The internet doesn’t always provide the connectivity you need to these important services. It needs to be a secure, reliable, high performance connection, so we offer connectivity to cloud providers from our MPLS network. We already have connections to Microsoft, AWS, Salesforce, DXC technology, Oracle and IBM. We can provide you high performance, secure connections to these services from your BT network in a few days.

MPLS isn’t dead. It’s the backbone of any global network, delivering global availability, performance and security.

And as bandwidth demand escalates, our 10GB capability becomes increasingly attractive. Cloud connectivity is also key, and sometimes the internet just isn’t enough. We give you secure and reliable direct connection to a range of different cloud providers, such as Microsoft, Amazon, SalesForce and IBM. Our MPLS is also the perfect platform for new network services, like SD-WANs, that use MPLS as part of a hybrid network to improve the performance of your applications.

We have decades of experience in delivering and supporting global MPLS-based networks.

The internet offers ever-increasing bandwidths at a reducing cost per megabit.

As you try to meet your ever-increasing bandwidth demands, you may be looking to the internet as one of your solutions.

Internet connectivity is a broad term. Business grade and consumer grade internet are very different services. Our business grade internet service is a dedicated solution that gives you high performance and availability with the services support you need. We also offer uncontended internet services, like consumer services, which come with lower levels of service and performance, but also a much lower price.

We can offer the right internet solution for you, wherever you are.
