Manufacturing success is contingent on employee productivity and cost-efficiency. To stay competitive these days, manufacturers must capitalize on next-generation technologies and deliver a rock-solid 24-7 network solution that combines reliability and performance. Cloud applications and workforce mobility can help increase employee productivity, but supporting these initiatives increases security ricks and bandwidth requirements that will strain your IT budget. Cloud network also increases your downtime risk to the point where a network outage can literally bring the entire operation to a screeching halt. The bottom line is that manufacturing IT teams are being called upon to deliver more with less, and they’re finding that legacy network technologies like MPLS are ill suited for these emerging networks requirements.
Common indicators will signal when your manufacturing team has outgrown your legacy WAN. If network complexity and downtime costs are increasing, these operational risks must be addressed. When employees complain about the responsiveness of cloud-based applications like Microsoft Office365 suite, or spotty performance for unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) services like VoIP or Skype for Business, these are clear signs that team productivity is not optimized. If mobile workers or remote locations are suffering from slow speeds, they’ll need a scalable and secure bandwidth solution to reach their full potential.
These growing pains are all too common for manufacturers who rely on legacy WAN technologies like MPLS. The bottom lines is manufacturers simply cannot justify the ever-increasing MPLS network spend, so they must implement a more efficient network that optimizes productivity while reducing costs.
Firms looking for better user experience, with higher availability, scalability and visibility, turn to TELoIP to migrate their outdated legacy WANOp and WAN routing infrastructure to a software-defined WAN solution.
TELoIP will help you optimize efficiency with a Virtual Intelligent Network Overlay (VINO) that enables manufacturing teams to operate at maximum productivity. VINO combines security, speed and performance with the versatility to scale bandwidth and reliability to any location. VINO SD-WAN solutions include patented Internet optimization technology that delivers the quality and reliability of MPLS with broadband-per-megabit pricing. VINO SD-WAN is designed to support all your requirements for cloud performance, reliability and centralized management efficiency. Best of all, VINO SD-WAN is delivered as a managed service through TELoIP certified partners to ensure your success.
Our partners usually conduct workshops with the customer network engineering team to better understand their needs and educate them on TELoIP’s VINO SD-WAN solutions. They also involve server, application and voice teams to better understand each group’s challenge around WAN and cloud services. Once the entire spectrum of needs is understood, our partner develops a comprehensive network design and deployment plan.
