But getting a complete picture can be complicated – especially when you’re running applications from the cloud rather than across your infrastructure.
So, what if you could get all the visibility you need, along with control over your applications and a better understanding of how to improve performance, prioritise your services and manage your bandwidth?
This level of visibility and control is now possible in a range of different ways.
We partner with the best application services specialists in the market, such as Riverbed and InfoVista, to provide acceleration, network intelligence and SD-WAN style routing. Or you can get control and visibility through a simple portal with an SD-WAN solution.
Both approaches have different benefits. What’s important is that they’re delivered with a strong management wrap and are built on a network which offers you the performance your organisation needs.
Buying more bandwidth to support your bandwidth-hungry applications is an expensive and not really the best solution. Our Connect Intelligence services can improve the performance of your applications and processes because they:
We partner with the leading providers, such as InfoVista and Riverbed, offering hardware and cloud-based solutions, and we’re the first to launch brand new, flexible commercial models for their services. We also offer the experience and expertise to ensure a successful solution.
The time and cost of shipping, installing and maintaining network hardware are huge, so the virtualisation of these services is a revolutionary change for networks. Our Connect Services Platform lets you virtualise your own functions and add to leading solutions, such as Checkpoint, InfoVista and Riverbed. These are deployed on your edge device (our Connect Edge portfolio), and you can choose from a range of Cisco ENCS for your different site types.
You can have a solution which is a simple evolution of your existing Cisco estate, where you can create your own sandbox of VNFs and you can take advantage of our expertise and trials to make sure your solution is a success.
As a digital business, your network needs the right technology and to be flexible, secure and agile.
You also need to integrate the old with the new, all while controlling spend.
We can help you achieve this. We can help you define your business objectives, analyse your network performance and usage, identify strategic improvements and design you a complete roadmap. To get things started, we can host one of our Dynamic Network Services strategic workshops to qualify your needs and objectives. The output from this is a report which shows how network improvements could impact your business and highlights your technology areas that need further discovery work for transformation.
Agile Connect is our unique SD-WAN solution. It’s ideal for branch solutions, offering fast, simple site set-up, easy control and our added security wrap.
Because it’s an SD-WAN, you can meet additional bandwidth demand and improve the performance of your priority applications.
It’s unique to us because it’s built on, and integrated into, our global network, plus it’s controlled through our portal - the same portal you can use to control your wider network services. It comes already built with regional gateways, hub connectivity, and added security including against cyber attacks. You can control the service yourself, or we can control it for you, and our service wrap will make sure you have a successful solution.
This fully managed, secure solution is delivered using our experience in large scale deployment and application management.
We offer best-of-breed reporting and analytics to improve your SD-WAN visibility and control.
Our managed solution is a great choice as you migrate towards a software-enabled service. It lets you:
And, if needed, our dedicated specialist team can also do the configuration and maintenance of your SD-WAN service in-life.
