But you may be struggling to get that complete picture, especially if you’re running apps from the cloud, rather than across your infrastructure.
To get full operational control, you need end-to-end visibility of your entire ICT estate; regardless of geographic reach or supplier. This helps improve your performance, prioritise your services and manage your bandwidth.
There are application service specialists, who have a rich history of providing acceleration and network intelligence services and now offer SD-WAN style routing too. We partner with the best application service specialists in the market, such as Riverbed and InfoVista.
Or, you can get control and visibility through a simple portal with an SD-WAN solution. But unique to us is Service Intelligence, which gives you end-to-end visibility across your entire ICT estate, helping you to minimise operational downtime.
Each approach has different benefits. But what’s important, is that they’re delivered with a strong management wrap and are built on a network that gives you the performance you need.
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.
It can be tough to diagnose problems, but our Service Intelligence solution correlates alarms from multiple sources to rapidly pinpoint any faults, regardless of supplier.
It quickly isolates the fault domain and identifies the root cause in seconds, rather than months. And it displays this information in a context-aware, intuitive, visually rich dashboard.
Service Intelligence can remove fault management costs, as well as save revenue lost from associated ‘down-time’. It’s vendor- and technology-agnostic and is an intelligent aggregation tool that utilises existing management tool data to deliver a 360 degree view on the health of your sites globally.
