As businesses continue to target global markets in search of growth, cost control and operational efficiency remain critical to mitigating risk and optimising financial performance. This is especially true in the area of communications, where, in a continually changing landscape, multinational companies are increasingly realising the benefits of unified solutions that save them money as well as enable a raft of productivity-enhancing applications.
To capitalise on revenue-earning opportunities from converged network solutions, service providers require a deeper understanding of the evolving communication challenges faced by international businesses and need easy access to the tools necessary to help these organisations achieve their goals.
Global businesses need networks that fit their requirements, costs and timescales but the large, slower-moving, multinational network providers are neither organised nor equipped to deliver a customised service. This often results in under or over provisioning, compromised performance and unnecessary expense.
Conn3ct offers best-fit, best-performance global connectivity solutions that align with your specific business needs. CRISP, our innovative Core Routing Infrastructure and Services Platform, enables seamless direct connection with the world’s top carrier network to provide a high performance, made-to-measure global network that comes with an end-to-end SLA and full interoperability with our global Intelligent SIP service.
Voice and other delay sensitive traffic is fully supported across the core and carrier networks, and delivered via our local, in-country data centre hubs to control latency. Supported by our London-based Network Operations Centre, you get one point of contact and a completely personalised service.
Make Your Global Network An Asset Not a Liability
Network carriers and traditional aggregators don’t have the resource or expertise to deliver the high performance, multi-network solutions demanded by today’s international businesses – and they’ve shied away from the complexities of managing global quality of service and fragmented SLAs.
Conn3ct takes a different approach. Developed in-house, our CRiSP platform simplifies the provisioning and management of global networks. It connects directly to best-in-class global carriers to provide bespoke worldwide networks that are optimised for performance and cost, and backed a single, end-to-end SLA.
Services are supported by our Global SIP infrastructure and delivered locally through data centre hubs around the world to enable accurate management of latency and guarantee quality of service for voice and other network sensitive applications.
Poor Network Performance Will Hold Your Business Back
When real-time communication such as voice, video and collaboration are delivered over converged networks, latency issues can have a big impact on performance. The same problem affects unified communications and contact centre services, and it’s magnified when networks are global.
Conn3ct builds bespoke networks, which allows us to keep latency at a level that’s acceptable to your business. With the support of our ground-breaking Intelligent SIP and collaboration with Tier 1 global carrier partners, our CRiSP platform integrates converged voice and data networks across the world, to give you the high-performance connectivity you need.
We deliver global services from strategically located network hubs that allows reliable management of latency below 150ms and can control different levels of latency over different legs of a multi-carrier network to optimise both performance and cost. With a single end-to-end SLA, we keep network management simple and quality of service optimised.
SD-WAN Will Help
Network technologies are continually evolving and we can help you prepare for new innovations by developing a clear roadmap for change. For example, we’re already seeing how Software-Defined Networking (SDN) can help to handle the exponential growth of network traffic. When software controls network functions in place of traditional hardware, you can quickly build capacity while saving cost and improving security. SDN is also one of the technologies behind the architecture of 5G, which will dramatically increase data transfer speed and provide huge additional capacity across fixed and mobile networks.
Conn3ct SD-WAN: Connectivity On-demand
Our next-generation, SDN-based Ethernet fabric offers multinational organisations the ingredients they need to connect with today’s cloud-based business services and applications, when and how they choose:
- cost efficiency
- quality of service
Using our platform, companies no longer need to purchase long-term, fixed bandwidth circuits. Conn3ct-defined networking enables the provisioning of dedicated 'elastic interconnects' between your network and other networks connected to our Ethernet fabric. These interconnects can be provisioned in seconds to meet precise speed and timing requirements. It’s all available on-demand – you can order by month, day or hour with no on-going contract, and upgrade or downgrade connections whenever and wherever they’re needed.
Conn3ct Can Help
Businesses are going global in search of growth and to support international operations they need converged communication networks that enable them to control costs and risk, while improving collaboration and productivity. The challenges they face in managing and optimising network performance represent significant opportunities for service providers.
Some of the key areas to consider include:
- Rationalisation of carriers to cut the hassle and complexity of managing a global network
- Increased global network coverage and reduced latency to enhance quality of service and user experience
- Improved network performance to support a surge in Skype for Business deployment, ensure quality delivery of real-time applications such as voice and video, and reduce the risk of impacting other business-critical services
- Reduced costs and increased business flexibility through the provision of a SIP-based network
