Tech Talks: Network as a Service provider enables more efficient, secure operations

Person holding an image of a globe in their palm with a stream of interconnected dots sweeping past, symbolizing a global network.To serve as technology consultants to our clients, we need to stay up to speed with the latest IT trends and solutions. To achieve that, our team of IT experts attends weekly training sessions conducted by various IT solution providers. Based on our extensive experience and sales volume with the suppliers, we receive exclusive, direct and usually in-person training from these suppliers. Our Tech Talks blog series offers a snapshot of these educational sessions.

A marketing agency with three locations in the U.S. acquired another agency with an international presence. To tackle the challenge of merging networks and connecting all the locations involved, the agency turned to one of our technology partners. Collaboration was vital for the client, as their staff members exchanged multiple large files each workday and utilized videoconferencing for essential meetings to move projects forward. The business needed more bandwidth to support productivity.

Our partner, a global Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, assigned a project manager who delivered timelines and scheduled recurring status calls to keep everything on schedule. The provider’s engineers then suggested a solution that involved internet connections at each site and global SD-WAN services. Our partner also recommended cloud connection services since the agency relied on Microsoft Azure to store files.

Ultimately, our partner successfully boosted bandwidth for all locations and lowered network costs. On top of that, the NaaS provider’s 24/7 network operations center (NOC) is always available to rapidly resolve any issues.

If you want to achieve better network performance, you should consider partnering with the same provider. Our technology consultants reviewed the supplier’s portfolio during a recent meeting with their sales team.
