The reality

A network is more than connectivity

A network isnt just connectivity between your sites, it’s the backbone that your organisation runs on. Its performance is key to the way you transfer data, the speed of applications, the quality of voice and video. Its also one of your connections to the outside world.

So for your organisation to work effectively your network has to work at its optimum. The quality of your connection to the outside world is a reflection of the quality of the service you provide. You need an intelligent network, one which is more than a connection. An intelligent network is one in which you have understanding and control over the performance of the connectivity.

We have the ability to deliver a network, but we also have the tools to make sure that network is intelligent.

The problem

The impact of just connecting

The speed of your applications directly relates to your organisations productivity, if you waiting for an application to update then you are wasting time. Its not just application problems, if your bandwidth is being hogged then your video conference or even voice call might not maintain the quality required.

Identifying the problem can be a very complex process; the application environment can be very complex as user’s access applications in lots of different ways including fixed and mobile devices via the intranet, internet, cloud and corporate network. These problems are a drain on your network and on the resources used to manage them.

Just adding bandwidth isnt always the answer, problems on your network can eat bandwidth and extra bandwidth like most things costs more money.

You connection to the outside world is also directly linked to the performance of your organisation. If end users are finding your internet pages don’t load quickly, they’ll look elsewhere.
