For someone who's responsible for overseeing or managing a business's telecommunications systems, what's the most important thing in the world to them?
I'd say it's time.
Network management has become steadily more complex, especially as unified communications systems start to unite telephony and networking into a single system. These days, an IT director isn't simply overseeing the network. They're also responsible for the telephones, web hosting, off-site data backups, systems security, and more.
Is it any wonder so many of our clients come to us hoping we can find ways to reduce their workload?
Well, thanks to ADTRAN, there's a new option on the market which may leave plenty of IT Directors looking for new ways to spend their time: ProCloud managed WiFi services. Through, this service, you can move virtually all of your day-to-day Wi-Fi network operations offsite, putting them in the hands of networking experts who've dedicated themselves to bringing advanced technology to smaller businesses.
At its most basic, Pro Cloud brings you high-quality Wi-Fi service backed by technical support that's among the best in the industry. ADTRAN provides the pipeline straight to your Netvanta router and BlueSocket wireless access points, giving your business all the bandwidth you need for even the most demanding Internet applications.
If necessary, this can be combined with their ProStart service so that installation is handled as well, ensuring everything functions smoothly.
In fact, ADTRAN is so certain that their network is robust and stable that they're willing to guarantee 99.99% uptime – that's as good as any service provider can ever promise. Their size and scope means they can afford the redundant systems necessary to ensure this sort of always-on access, which many smaller Internet service providers can't match.
However, you get far more than just basic access. ADTRAN also takes over your day-to-day operations, remotely monitoring and controlling your network, 24x7x365. If there are any problems with your Internet service, you're notified immediately, even as ADTRAN gets to work fixing the problem. When needed, on-site tech support or hardware replacement is available within an hour or two, at any time of day or night.
Software updates are handled automatically and invisibly, generally during after-hours. Most of the time, you won't even be aware that an upgrade occurred!
Security is standardized as well, ensuring totally even security policies across your network. Any potentially unauthorized intrusions are reported, even as ADTRAN's own AOS operating system works to keep intruders out.
Then at the end of every month, you'll get a full report on your network, any irregularities, and any actions that ADTRAN has taken. You'll always know exactly where your money is going. If you ever decide that your resources are better allocated elsewhere, it's simple to migrate back to in-house support. You can stop using Pro Cloud at any time without any ongoing commitments.
With all this taken care of, you might actually have time to do some real work!
