WAN - Wide Area Network

Organizations operating in multiple geographic locations require employees, clients, and vendors to function efficiently in a single reliable network.  Wide area networks  (WANs) empower remote stakeholders to communicate and collaborate securely under one network, as if located within the same four walls. 

The introduction of cheap bandwidth has significantly changed WAN technology.  MPLS, VPLS, Broadband, FTTC, xDSL, fiber, copper EFM, 3G or 4G, and point-to-point:  All serve a specific purpose for organizations today, and each has strengths and weaknesses based upon an organization’s geographic and IT infrastructure. 

MPLS

If your business wants more from its current network, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a highly scalable packet-switched network solution that increases traffic performance in high usage networks. MPLS assigns data packets with specific labels, thus routing data through virtual paths between nodes rather than endpoints.  The results?  Enhanced bandwidth use, reduced network congestion and an overall better user experience.  MPLS supports DSL, TI/E1, Frame Relay and ATM.

VPN

Virtual Private Networks (VPN) use encryption and tunneling to extend your company’s private network across a public network, like the Internet.  By utilizing the right VPN solution, your business can operate between regional offices and remote/roaming users as if directly connected to your private network.  VPNs scale easily from 64k to 100G and can combine with your voice network to reduce costs and reduce the number of circuits you need to manage.  VPN solutions are often cheaper than MPLS and are an excellent choice for data recovery because they can quickly reroute traffic to a secure data recovery sites during emergencies

As companies become more digital, more global, and more virtual, high-performing and reliable Ethernet services become a strategic advantage for organizations.  Utilizing the right carrier with the right cost effective solution allows organizations to deliver data, information, and applications securely over both Local Area and Wide Area Networks reliably and securely. We’ll help you determine the best Ethernet solution for your business, vet the best providers in your area, see the implementation through to the end, and will be your single-point-of-contact for all your Ethernet service needs.

The demand for bandwidth is increasing from the development of data centre hosting and storage area networks. Speed and reliability have become essential components to network functionality and overall business success. Ethernet Internetworking ensures your business is equipped to meet these challenges by increasing the speed and strength of your network.

Ethernet Internetworking offers a wide range of network configuration options which are customizable to maximize the efficiency of your infrastructure. EI offers multiple class-of-service options over a single access providing speeds ranging from 1Mbps to 100Gbps. This service provides industry-leading performance and security SLAs (Service Level Agreements) for organizations that require higher speeds, low latency and secure point-to-point connectivity.

Broadband

Broadband today is about more than just high speed Internet connections in the office.  In today’s business environment, it’s about having a connection wherever your employees need it.  Whether DSL or Cable high speed Internet, Wi-Fi connectivity, or Mobile Broadband, all broadband networks are not created equal.  Each carrier displays unique strengths and weaknesses depending on the region of the country you’re located, your business structure, and your vertical.
