And when setting up new sites, you need to be up and running as fast as possible, securely and reliably connected to your company network and the wider internet.
What if you could flex your network of branches and remote offices quickly and easily to meet market demand?
Technologies, such as SD-WAN, can help you do this. Instead of needing a skilled engineer or technician on-site to configure hardware and software, you can now have a plug-and-play SD-WAN box, which auto-configures and delivers a secure connection to your corporate network quickly and easily.
The next stage of your transformation is virtualisation. Functions such as your firewalls, acceleration and CPE services, will no longer be delivered via hardware. This means you don’t have to take into account shipping time for any kit, nor do you need local technical support.
And as you make changes to your customer experience – by adding things like customer wi-fi or networks to support increased use of devices in your branches – your network is no longer the barrier to change.
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.

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:

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.
