It's easy to spend so much time ensuring that your network is working properly, that you lose sight of what it should be delivering to your business.
Monitoring, maintaining, upgrading, troubleshooting and pro-actively managing your data can be extremely costly, not to mention time consuming.
Advantage can help you achieve greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness by managing selected IT functions for you. This approach lets you retain more control than you would with a fully-outsourced solution, but frees up some of the resource in your IT function to perform more tasks that support your business.
Our network management tools give you invaluable network management information such as costs, traffic levels and fault diagnosis at a glance. Our proactive management means that we will often have dealt with a problem—such as an overloaded server—long before it can affect the performance of the network.
Planning Network Development
We don't just diagnose problems with the network—we offer pragmatic, cost-effective suggestions of how to solve them. We will work with your IT professionals to design a practical programme to design and deliver improvements in the network infrastructure which help to improve performance and productivity, and which can drive down the total cost of ownership.
Advantage will constantly monitor the performance of your network, giving you a clear picture of how the network performs at different times. We also audit infrastructure usage and offer solutions to improve network performance and enable optimum productivity.
Advantage is a major player in the provision of managed and hosted services. We spend millions on telecoms each year, and that buying power allows us to secure competitive pricing from our own suppliers. That lets us give our own customers competitive pricing. We use multiple circuit providers, multiple telecoms carriers, multiple IP transit providers and multiple data centres. Although this gives us resilience, it also gives us the power to play our suppliers off against each other, to secure the best prices for our customers.
Your network needs to be available to the business 24/7, which is why we provide 24/7 network monitoring and service support through our technical network operations centre.
