We design efficient, secure and cost-effective wide area network (WAN) solutions for businesses using a range of connectivity technologies including:
A WAN can span large geographical areas to link many offices using a variety of different media, transmission methods and protocols. Reliable, efficient and secure WAN implementations rely on the correct combination of services, from both a technical and commercial standpoint.
Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS)
MPLS provides your own private converged network to deliver data and real-time applications, such as voice and video, over traditional connections, such as broadband, leased lines and Ethernet circuits, without losing any quality of service (QoS).
Whichever methods of site connection you use, we bring them together onto a shared core so there is only ever one network to take care of. You can choose your own speed and prioritise your traffic. And as this is a private network, there is no need for firewall protection.
As connection and rental charges are not distance dependant, an MPLS network provides a cost-efficient solution when compared to a traditional leased line WAN while further cost savings can be found by consolidating your voice and data onto a single network.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
VPNs use the Internet to connect offices and remote workers to increase productivity and to provide more flexible working arrangements.
Our managed VPN services ensure the security of your data by using encryption and routing protocols to ensure that only authorised users can access the network.
VPN connectivity is by far the most economical and flexible way of linking sites. You and your colleagues will enjoy the same full and continuous access to your business network and central resources as if you were physically connected to it. Your connection to the Internet will need to be of sufficient bandwidth to support the data being transmitted and we can supply a range of connections from broadband to Internet leased lines.
We can deliver Ethernet services within 45 days which is significantly faster than most other WAN suppliers.
