Whether your business is large or small, you realize business is still running even in the off hours, 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the internet. The need for continuity and availability is crucial for success. Building a redundant network is one of the smartest strategies you can use to combat unexpected issues, such as inopportune site maintenance or other unforeseen down time and failures within your network.
Many vendors, or carriers, offer a variety of products to implement into your existing network. Even if you have a plan for creating a redundant network, ordering through a vendor can be tedious and time consuming, especially if you don’t know exactly what you want. There really isn’t any wiggle room for mistakes because, as I mentioned above, business is running constantly. The Telecom Brokers at NWMAP will listen to your needs, orders products specific to those needs, and install, as well as maintain this more efficient way of keeping your business competitive.
For many, the choice of redundant networks is a MPLS (Multiprotocol Label System). MPLS can be the best resource for building network redudancy in a wide area network (WAN) for several reasons. First, better security and survivability during those unexpected events we discussed above. MPLS offers hands-down better performance for your buck. It’s smart- yes, it’s true MPLS uses class of service and priority queuing, which means it recognizes your most important traffic and prioritizes it. Other benefits include consolidations and simplifications, which to a business translates into lower overall cost and increased efficiency- all in a day’s work.
