The reality

Hybrid – its all about the balance

You are looking for the perfect network solution, one which utilises the advantages of public and private networks, one which uses the advantages of the internet but also uses the advantages of a VPN.

It’s all about balance, the balance between performance, cost, security and scalability. The perfect network solution has the perfect balance of these factors. A hybrid network enables you to balance these factors by utilising the full range of network options. That could mean that the internet is used to provide better coverage and low cost points, but that is combined with private network services which offer greater performance and security where it is required.

The problem

Making the most of the internet

The internet offers a great opportunity for your network. It offers greater reach, it offers low costs and it offers access to cloud services. But it doesn’t come with the same service levels, the same capability and the same security levels that your private network offers.

You want to make the most of both the internet (public) and your VPN (private) networks. You want to use the public network for lower priority traffic and the private network for higher priority traffic.

You need a hybrid network solution which combines the best of both worlds.

How we can help

The best of both worlds

We stand out because we offer the best of both worlds. We offer a hybrid solution which combines a market leading private network with a market leading internet solution, to ensure that your hybrid solution offers the perfect balance of:

  • Performance & agility
  • Security
  • Scale
  • Cost

We will also give you control of your network. Our Connect Intelligence IWAN service was the first global solution utilising Cisco IWAN and its juts one of the solutions we offer which enables the offloading of traffic onto the internet. The offloading of lower priority traffic frees up bandwidth for more important traffic on your private network. We will combine this with our cloud of clouds vision, giving you direct connectivity to 3rd party suppliers such as Microsoft and the ability to use your network as the platform to a range of different cloud services.

We offer you the building blocks to the perfect intelligent hybrid solution.
