Telecom Carrier Services
DO CARRIER ISSUES TAKE UP too much time?
When you have a problem with your data or voice service, it can mean hours—even days—of phone calls, emails, and troubleshooting for your team—time you don’t have. And if your offices span cities, states, or countries, then you have multiple carriers, vendors, and contracts to manage. No simple task.
Maximizing Business Potential
Reductions in operational expenditure and the ability to focus your IT team on your core business, means that data centers offer organizations the ability to maximize the potential within their businesses. Do businesses have a team where people are available 24/7/365 to re-boot servers when they fail at 3 a.m.? Colocation companies specialize in data center and network services so businesses don’t have to.
For financial directors and IT directors, colocation provides the perfect win-win scenario, providing cost savings and delivering state-of-the-art infrastructure. When comparing the capabilities of a standard server room to a colocation solution, an assessment of the power alone demonstrates the gap between in-house solutions and utilizing the expertise of a specialist.
While many in-house server rooms have access to power and may well have air conditioning and battery back-ups, this system does not fully protect infrastructure. Organizations need to consider whether their power solution also include diverse power feeds and distribution paths, with dual generator systems that can be re-fuelled while in operation as well as onsite fuel reserves. Do they have diverse cooling systems, with UPS support in place? Who is monitoring their power and battery levels 24/7? Do they have a 100 percent uptime solution?

Did your computing needs shoot up overnight? Or did they drop drastically during your slow season? Instead of having to hire — or fire — new staff or purchase more equipment to handle it yourself, you can just make a call to your colocation provider and scale your service up or down as needed.
Colocation providers keep your servers in climate-controlled data centers, with high bandwidth speeds, and excellent redundancy for network connections. You won’t have to pay the costs to purchase and maintain this kind of IT infrastructure in your own offices, and your internal IT staff can focus on other business operations.
Quality colocation providers house your servers in secure data centers, with security measures that include biometric scanners, closed circuit cameras, on-site security, coded access, alarm systems, and more. And with colocation, you don’t have to hire or purchase any of these security measures yourself — it’s all included in your service plan.
If you have to move offices, or are hit with a power outage, or suffer a natural disaster, you won’t have to worry about your data or services going down. A colocation provider will have multiple backup generators and contingencies in place to ensure that there is never an interruption in service, for you, or for your customers.
Not only does using a colocation provider often save money, but it also turns unpredictable capital outlays into predictable monthly expenses. You only pay for your own equipment, not a whole datacenter. Your company will be able to budget for IT needs and allocate existing resources more efficiently.
