Downtime for any business equates to money lost, this remains true even more so for telecommunications companies. In an industry where mere seconds of downtime can equate to lost revenue, damage to reputation, and missed SLAs – Uptime is of the utmost importance. Can you afford a network failure?
Telecom companies require an infrastructure management solution that’s bulletproof. Their networks need to have secure remote access to all devices and the ability to troubleshoot them quickly and easily no matter if they’re at the core or edge of the network – It’s impossible to have IT staff on-site everywhere. Telecom IT networks need connectivity failover in the form of 4G/LTE to maintain uptime and troubleshoot issues remotely in case issues arise. They need IPv6 and IPv4 firewalls in place to keep the edge of the network safe and secure. Environmental monitoring and the ability to set custom alerts in order to proactively protect themselves against any issues are all needs telecom companies have. Like in all industries, network ports come at a premium – The ability to cascade devices to save some valuable ports becomes a necessity. Not only that, but scalability and network speed also need to be considered by telco’s as well.
