The Cloud Puzzle

Cloud-based (Hosted) Best Practices: Connectivity

Cloud-based (Hosted) phone systems provide easy online administration, don’t require the installation of a server and are a cost-effective way for businesses to get rich VoIP functionality. And since the provider is responsible for ensuring system maintenance and upgrades are performed regularly and are in line with the latest in technology, these types of solutions are attractive to many.

But, as with any business critical application, there are best practices that should be followed when implementing a Cloud-based (Hosted) PBX solution. One of the most important, yet often overlooked, considerations is ensuring continuous, uninterrupted Internet uptime.

Why? Because your Cloud-based (Hosted) phone services are being delivered over the Internet and managed online by you project management web app. If your connection falters, so does your ability to make/receive calls and take advantage of UC (Unified Communications) functionalities.

So what’s the best practice for ensuring continuous Internet connectivity when it comes to Cloud-based (Hosted) PBX? There are two keys:

  1. Redundancy, Redundancy, Redundancy – We can’t stress it enough. Rather than relying on one Internet connection, always make sure your business is connected to the outside world via multiple links. So when (not if) one connection fails, the other is still there to keep you up and running.
  2. Load Balancing & Automatic Failover – To make your redundant connections work best for you, implement a load balancing and automatic failover solution. By balancing the data load between multiple connections, your resources are optimized and you’re proactively working to avoid overload. If your main connection does fail, automatic failover seamlessly transfers your data load over to the connection that is up and running.

Regardless of whether you choose Teleco South Florida to deploy your hosted solution or utilize another service, the implementation of a load balancing and automatic failover solution is imperative to businesses with Cloud-based (Hosted) services and is what makes redundancy work so well.

WAN Woes?

“Working at home stinks – The network is so slow!” – “Why does our CRM keep locking up?” – “Your Web Conference is three slides behind what you’re talking about!”

If any of these statements sound familiar, you may be sharing in the common “WAN Woes” many companies experience.

Ever-expanding remote workforces, increased demand for wireless network access and collaborative technologies like Web conferencing, video-based services and application sharing has significantly increased the amount of bandwidth employees need to remain effective and productive.

Unfortunately, the simple truth for many businesses is that their Wide Area Network (WAN) isn’t adequately equipped to handle the additional strain and traffic these applications demand. The result is that users’ productivity suffers because the mission-critical applications they depend on run too slowly.

At Teleco South Florida, we’ve helped thousands of companies identify and solve their “WAN Woes”. And though each company is different, we typically find the reasons WANs underperform fall into three primary categories: Remote workforce demand, convergence, and security.

Remote Workforce Demand – In years past, email and calendering applications topped the list for applications accessed remotely. But recently, remote user needs have drastically changed. Now, says Forrester Research, the majority of remote workers are accessing mission-critical applications, such as CRM and ERP systems, on laptops and mobile devices far from the office.

This raises the stakes for IT departments offering remote access. Remote users demand high-performance access to their mission-critical applications—the same performance they’d get if they “plugged in” at the office. When a company’s WAN isn’t properly configured to account for the needs of its remote users and deliver the speed they require, they miss out on a critical opportunity for enhanced productivity and faster customer response times.

Convergence One prevalent and growing challenge for today’s WANs is convergence: The incorporation of voice and video services into IP (Internet Protocol) networks. This is because Voice over IP (VoIP) is the dominant technology in today’s business communications marketplace, and more companies are using video for everything from training to sales promotions to Webinars. In addition, voice and video require low latency and reliable network service – exactly where many WANs fall short. Because video is a huge bandwidth hog on its own, this can be a recipe for disaster.

WAN configurations designed to handle the basic client-server data connections of five years ago often do a poor job addressing voice and video applications, because the data is already highly compressed. Layering on additional compression only leads to client-side delays as the network infrastructure burns resources trying to shrink data that can’t be made any smaller.

Security If WAN configurations aren’t integrated with security solutions, companies often must make a choice: Accelerate voice, data and video traffic or secure it. Typically they choose the latter out of necessity, and application performance suffers.

However, companies that deploy WAN solutions with integrated security features don’t have to sacrifice performance. In fact, building security into a WAN solution makes perfect sense. To accelerate traffic, a WAN appliance is already performing the traffic analysis and packet inspection required for making intelligent, policy-based decisions about threats and inappropriate traffic. When integrated into the WAN, security controls create little overhead and, by eliminating elicit traffic, can improve application performance.

We combine that logic, along with several other innovative optimization technologies, to help significantly boost the speed and performance of your company’s remotely accessed and Web-based mission-critical applications. Our technology combines these state-of-the-art, customizable WAN Optimization features, comprehensive threat (virus, Trojan, malware, spyware, etc.) protection and Web/content filtering all in one solution.

Best of all, because we’ll manage the service for you, there’s no expensive equipment to purchase, maintain, or upgrade or staff needed for administration – that’s on us!

But it’s not just technology protecting you – Our team of experts helps keep you out of harm’s way by proactively identifying “yellow flags” in your key networking statistics to wipe out potential threats before they can cause damage.
