Tech Talks: Supplier serves as a single source for network, overlay solutions, managed services

An illustration of three square layers (light blue, salmon-colored and dark gray) stacked with a minimal amount of space between layers.To serve as a trusted advisor 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.

An Indiana-based auto dealer with multiple locations relied on legacy telco services that leveraged copper and POTS lines. The dealerships began to have issues as they moved business processes online, overburdening the old-fashioned network infrastructure. The company sought to move away from copper as well as establish redundant access beyond their local exchange carrier (LEC) footprint.

The dealership ended up working with one of our trusted partners, a leader in the telecommunications space. This supplier implemented a redundant access layer via cable broadband and LEC fiber. To ensure the best possible network performance across all locations, the solution provider also deployed SD-WAN and offered a managed WAN service. The dealership now has a managed, virtual and highly secure network for all sites that allows their staff members to deliver better customer service.

Representatives of that telecom solution supplier recently met with our trusted advisors to discuss how they help businesses improve operations by serving as a one-stop shop for the entire communications stack, including network solutions, overlay applications and managed services. If that sounds appealing to you, here’s some essential information to consider about this provider’s background and portfolio.
