In recent years, new technologies have transformed the way companies of all sizes operate. Embracing developments such as the rise of mobility, fiber Internet, and software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is crucial for any organization looking to maintain a competitive edge. Our team of tech experts recently met with representatives from Verizon, one of our partners, to discuss the solutions they offer for enterprises seeking to leverage advanced technology to succeed in the digital age. Here’s a snapshot of what our team learned.
You’re probably already familiar with Verizon, a telecommunications company based in New York City that offers wireless products and services. The company is an industry leader in the realm of 4G wireless technology and is preparing to launch its first commercial 5G services this year in Sacramento. We can’t wait for Verizon and other providers to bring 5G to Chicago.
Additionally, Verizon Enterprise Solutions provides businesses with products that allow them to control costs, increase efficiency, and overall achieve success in an increasingly digital world. These offerings fall into the categories of mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), networks and Internet, IT solutions and cloud, business communications, and security. With one of the world’s most secure and stable global networks, Verizon Enterprise gives clients the opportunity to reach new levels of connectivity.
These are just a few of the cutting edge products and solutions from Verizon that companies can leverage to boost efficiency and gain connectivity, among other business benefits.
For companies that increasingly rely on cloud applications, traditional Wide Area Network (WAN) offerings often aren’t enough. SD-WAN has gained popularity as an option for businesses seeking high-performing, secure multi-site networking solutions. Managed SD-WAN from Verizon merges public and private networks to form a single virtualized, secure software-defined networking solution that’s responsive to changing demands and reliably connects apps to users. Verizon provides the tools, monitoring services, and support needed to maintain peak network performance for your company – and you don’t even need Internet from Verizon to utilize their SD-WAN services.
