And evolving your infrastructure through digitalisation and the addition of more cloud services can make it worse. It’s easy to end up with blind-spots and inefficiencies.
You could be losing around 2.6 per cent of your annual revenues due to lost productivity from slow-running applications and downtime.
What if you had end-to-end visibility of your IT estate and could see the performance, health and bandwidth demands of all applications running across your network, regardless of geography or supplier?
We partner with the best application service specialists in the market, such as Riverbed and InfoVista, providing acceleration and network intelligence services, as well as SD-WAN-style routing.
Or, we can provide control and visibility through a simple portal with an SD-WAN solution. And unique to us is Service Intelligence which gives you end-to-end visibility across your whole estate, helping you minimise operational downtime.
Each approach has different benefits, but all of them are 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 to enable it 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.
First we define your desired business outcomes and uncover the true state of your IT infrastructure to make informed decisions, based on fact.
We can then help you understand the benefits of a future networking strategy so that together we create a vision for the future and a transformation roadmap.
