Maximising Store Connectivity & Reducing TCO with WAN Network Management

Wireless WAN for Utilities

Driving Sustainable Cost Efficiencies


In today's hyper-connected world, businesses rely heavily on their Wide Area Networks (WANs) to facilitate seamless communication, data exchange, and collaboration across geographically dispersed locations. However, the complexity and demands of modern networking can quickly overwhelm even the most capable IT departments. This is where Managed WAN Services step in, offering a range of benefits that relieve businesses from the burden of network management and optimisation.

In any large distributed enterprise there are probably two universally accepted truths:

  • The WAN has been built over time with multiple technologies, including an array of legacy equipment, multiple connectivity types and multiple service plans.
  • Developing a cohesive WAN strategy has historically not been at the top of the agenda resulting in inefficient maintenance and support

This is probably because the WAN has not really been perceived as strategically important and has evolved over time as local or regional projects require more bandwidth. In the dynamic world of business, short-term goals often take precedence over long-term planning. Urgent projects and immediate challenges can divert attention from the need to establish a comprehensive WAN strategy.

Of course, that is until now.


Digital Transformation is Throwing the WAN into the Spotlight


The need for standardised policies that can be quickly and easily deployed across the entire estate, driven by an increased demand for applications that require highly available bandwidth, can make it seem almost impossible to keep up with the demands of the business.

The skilled human resource, the logistical planning requirements and the physical equipment needed to deliver application assurance - and then keeping up to date with rapid technology change - would stretch the budgets of even the best-funded IT operation. Rather than diverting valuable resources and manpower towards network troubleshooting and maintenance, managed WAN services allow businesses to allocate their expertise and resources to activities that directly contribute to their growth and innovation.

Unreliable or underperforming networks can hamper business productivity and customer experiences. Managed WAN services monitor network performance in real-time, proactively identifying and resolving potential issues before they impact operations. This focus on continuous monitoring and optimisation ensures that businesses enjoy a reliable and high-performing network infrastructure.
